We are living in an age when desi celebrities mark their calendars for global appearances several times in a year.
The year 2012 was no exception.
We spotted several Bollywood divas making glamorous appearances at various global events through the year. Here's looking at the ones that truly stood out.
Here's the thing about this talented actress.
She's French by birth but wears her Indianness on her sleeves. Brought up in the picturesque Pondicherry, Kalki went for a South Indian style ceremony for her wedding to beau Anurag Kashyap last year.
So it's heartening to see her addressed as a 'Bollywood actress' in foreign press.
Kalki arrived in an Amit Aggarwal gown to the Tribute To Chinese Director Zhang Yimou during the 12th International Marrakech Film Festival in December.
