Kim Michelle Sharma (born 21 January 1980) is a Bollywood actress and model.
Kim was born in Ahmednagar and did her schooling from a boarding school in Panchgani. After that she returned to her hometown and joined a junior college but hated her college. 'Having studied in a boarding school, where most of the girls were from aboard, living and studying in Ahmednagar came as a culture shock', quips Kim. So while in her twelfth, she decided to call it quits.
On a trip to Mumbai, she went through an audition for Close-Up toothpaste and as destiny would have it, was selected too. After the Close-Up commercial, many others followed like Sunsilk, Pepsi, Tata Safari, Ponds, Fair & Lovely, Clean-n-Clear and Liril. She is also the brand ambassador of Olay in India.
Sharma caught the eye of producer Aditya Chopra, and he signed her on his next directorial venture titled Mohabbatein. The film also marked the launch of five other newcomers, Uday Chopra, Jugal Hansraj, Jimmy Shergill, Shamita Shetty and Preeti Jhangiani. Mohabbatein also starred superstars Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. It was a huge hit and started Kim's career in Bollywood. In fact Mohabbatein is her only hit except for Heyy Babyy and Magadheera which she made Item number in.
