Geetanjali Thapa-The Freshest Hottie in Bollywood From Sikkim

Posted by Ramesh Khati on July 25, 2009


How does it feel to have a lead role in your debut film? Ask her and she’ll tell you all. Devansh Patel unveils the freshest face to enter Bollywood.

We quiz her in a quick rapid fire and got a lot in return which we never expected: her favourite films, home cooked food, Sonam Kapoor, Milind Soman, Hollywood director Baz Luhrman and much more.

This September get ready to see Geetanjali on big screen in her first flick Tina Ki Chaabi along side Ranvir Shorey.

A film directed by Amit Saxena of Jism fame. And in case you cannot be patient enough for September, cherish the most exclusive pictures Geetanjali has shared with us..


“I’ve grown up watching Hindi films in Sikkim. Although I can’t really speak the language very well. I’ve just entered Bollywood but haven’t seen much of it yet. Whatever I’ve seen I’ve liked.”

Favourite films

“I cannot pin point any particular film that I like. All the films that come on television out here are the ones I love. I remember watching Kal Ho Naa Ho while I was in school and loved the film. The last movie which I really liked was Jab We Met. I’ve also seen my co-star Ranvir Shorey’s film Ugly Aur Pagli. It was a fun filled film that I enjoyed. I’ve liked the story of Amit’s earlier film Jism too.”


“I enjoyed dubbing for Tina Ki Chaabi. It was great. In the entire filming process, Amit Saxena didn’t want any voice over for my part and was pretty sure to stick around with what I knew. Though I am now very familiar with the Hindi language and have improved my skills.”

Favourite Genre
“I love watching movies and any genre is good as long as the story is good. Off late it has kept on changing. Currently I’m totally into chic-flicks; I like horror films after few days.”

Favourite Director
“At the moment it has to be Amit Saxena (laughs). But I love Baz Luhrman films Australia and Moulin Rouge. He is my favourite.”

Favourite Celebrity
“From the male actors, I like and adore Aamir Khan. He can be simple, stylish and elegant at the same time.

From the actresses, I like Sonam Kapoor a lot. She carries herself very well. Actually all of the new heroines are so pretty and gorgeous that I like all of them.”


“Sikkim wasn’t a part of India for a very long time. 1975 was the year it became an Indian state. I love the home food of Sikkim. It’s yummy. It’s a mix of Tibetan food, the Bhutanese, the Nepalese food, the Middle East, etc. My favourite food is Mo Mo’s and Thukpa.”

“I’ve never been to this beautiful city and haven’t seen much of Mumbai to tell you the truth. Before I came from Sikkim, my friends took me out to town in Colaba for my farewell bash.

I loved it out there. I love getting my hands into Mumbai’s famous pani-puri, bhel-puri, etc. But I remember having Falooda which isn’t a Mumbai specialty but it’s my favourite.”

Favourite Ramp Model

“I’ve worked with the designers of the Lakme India Fashion Week but I am a bit short to walk on the ramp. I’ve done a lot of photo shoots. It may come across as pretty strange but I like Milind Soman. He is an inspiration.”
