Owner of Planet Hollywood Beach Resort in Utorda and former actress Urvashi Sharma, now known as Raina Joshi, reveals how the silver screen has come full circle in her life

She was formerly known as Urvashi Sharma, and was nominated for a Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut for her role in the film Naqaab. But she skimmed across screens more prominently as the face for a host of products including Ponds, Garnier, TBZ, Globus, KitKat, Monte Carlo and Hyundai i10.

Under her new persona of Raina Joshi, she has launched Planet Hollywood Beach Resort in Utorda, south Goa, a luxury beach getaway that has stormed the hospitality sector. Her past career adds a dash of glamour to the resort – Joshi was a model in television advertisements, and appeared in music videos for singers like Mika and Atif Aslaam.

After she married businessman Sachiin Joshi, her priority moved to her family. She quit the world of glitz and glamour, and began taking up projects close to her heart. Taking the lead at NGO Big Brother Foundation, she has helped innumerable underprivileged children and women with medical help and education, provided aid to the Nepal earthquake victims and spread awareness against cancer.
