The dusky actress featured in the New York Lotto commercial, along with Vivek Oberoi [ Images ], in the initial days of her modelling career. Since the ad was very bold, the question remained whether the actors had indeed shot for it.
In a statement, Bipasha's manager confirmed, "Bipasha had done this ad in 1999 when she was modelling for Ford [ Images ] Modelling Agency in New York. It was done as an international assignment and was meant for the international market. I don't know why such an old ad has surfaced now."
