Rimi Sen (born 21 September 1981) is an Indian actress who appears in Bollywood films. Since childhood Sen dreamt of becoming an actress. After completing her studies, she persuaded her mother to accompany her to Mumbai. She later said that she wasn’t encouraged by anyone in her family except for her grandfather. After doing the rounds, she got into ads including one Coca-Cola ad with Aamir Khan. She was instantly noticed and her first offers for films started rolling in.
Rimi made her debut as a lead actress in the Telugu movie Nee Thodu Kavali. Her debut Hindi film, Vijay Galani’s Hungama, released in 2003. It was a comedy film, in which she co-starred with Akshaye Khanna, Aftab Shivdasani, and Paresh Rawal.
She followed it with appearances in big budget movies like Dhoom (2004), Kyon Ki (2005), Garam Masala (2005) and Golmaal (2006). She also did a cameo in the 2006 film Dhoom 2, and followed it with Johnny Gaddaar alongside newcomer actor Neil Nitin Mukesh. In 2008, she appeared in De Taali and in Sankat City and Horn Ok Pleasse in 2009. All three of these films were box office disasters. After these films, her career has declined.
She further appeared in the films Thank you and Shagird in 2011 and both the films were declared box office failures.
Rimi is currently going by the screen name Rimmi. 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.
