Miss India finalist Barkha Madan, who played the lead role in RGV’s horror film, Bhoot, turned into a nun. Barkha Madan renounced the world, and this decision wasn’t prompted by financial lows, professional woes or heartbreak. Barkha, who now goes by the name Gyalten Samsen, was a Miss India finalist in 1994, the year that Sushmita Sen and Aishwarya Rai won big at the beauty pageant and went on to conquer the universe and the world.
After a successful stint as a model, Barkha herself stormed into Bollywood with Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi in 1996. She was returning to spook in and as Ram Gopal Varma’s Bhoot, and followed up with 20-odd TV shows.
Shocked with the news, Ram Gopal Varma shared the details of his actress, who has turned into a Buddhist monk now. She changed her name to Ven. Gyalten Samten and lives in a monastery now teaching children. However, it is yet to be known the reason behind her decision turning into a nun.
