20 years old and standing 5’8″ tall, Tanushree was crowned Pond’s Femina Miss India Universe 2004 in Mumbai, on March 27th. When she was 18, Tanushree tried out for the Femina competition and was brought to the regional rounds, but in that year and last year, she failed to make it to the final group of contestants. After much effort, she made it this year, and aside from picking up the main crown over 28 others, she won the VLCC Miss Confidence and Pond’s Miss Beautiful Smile sub-titles.

Originally from Jamshedpur in Jharkhand, Tanushree’s father Tappan is an officer with LIC, Life Insurance Corporation of India, but she wanted to make it big. She moved to the Mumbai area and enrolled as a B Com student at Brihan Maharashtra College of Commerce, where she even won the Miss BMCC crown. Officially, she still resides in Pune today. In the meantime, she has worked with an even management company and pursued modelling, primarily in ad campaigns and a recent music video.

Chocolate was to be Tanushree Dutta’s debut in 2005. However Aashiq Banaya Aapne beat it to the theaters. The movie enjoyed moderate success. She also had a Telugu release Veerabhadra. Apart from a cameo in 36 China Town, she didn’t have any movies in 2006. But had five releases in 2007 ? Risk, Good Boy Bad Boy, Raqeeb, Dhol and Speed. Her only release in 2008, Saas Bahu Aur Sensex did well.
