Rimi Sen, nick-named "Bollywood's Lucky Mascot" lost 8 kilos for her role as Sweety in Dhoom in 2004. She explains the name change as a career move: there are many other Sens working in Bollywood right now, and a single name may help her stand out from the crowd and stay apart from others.

Controversy

Rimi caused widespread offence in an interview statement in 2005, regarding the talent abilities of the director of the film Golmaal, Rohit Shetty. When complimented by a journalist on how good she'd looked in the film she was quoted as saying “Rohit Shetty is amazing as a director that he can even make a Black African look pretty”.

Numerous social groups reacted negatively and asked Rimi to apologise for the comment. The interview was removed from many online Bollywood-related sites due to an onset of complaints from site visitors.
