Biography: A pretty girl born to a Haryanvi Jat family, Minissha completed her schooling in Chennai. Later, she studied English honors at Miranda House, Delhi University. She wanted to pursue a career in journalism, but fate had other plans for her.
While she was studying for her degree, she started getting offers to shoot ads for popular brands like Sony, LG, Airtel, Sunsilk and Cadbury. Things were beginning to seem perfect when there was another turning point in her life! Her Cadbury ad shoot got her noticed by Bollywood director Shoojit Sircar, who signed her as the lead heroine for his film ‘Yahaan’ in 2005.
Thereafter, she was seen in a number of films like Corporate, Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd., Dus Kahaniyaan and Bachna Ae Haseeno. She had part roles to play in these films, and none of these got noticed for her acting in particular. She also starred in Shyam Benegal’s political satire film ‘Well Done Abba’, which was a critical success but a commercial failure.
Minissha has also starred in a number of forgettable films like Kidnap, Shaurya, Anamika, Bheja Fry 2 and Hum Tum Shabana. Though the movies didn’t quite work well at the box office, they clearly show that the actress has chosen films of various genres- right from romance to comedy to satire.
