Mumbai: The birthday bells have rung for Bollywood actor Bipasha Basu today. The dusky diva made her debut in the 2001 film 'Ajnabee', which earned her a Filmfare Award. She has never looked back since, starring in over 50 films, mostly in Hindi but also some in Bengali, Telugu and even a Belgian film.

Along with her acting, Bollywood's beloved 'Bips' is also known for her physical fitness and healthy lifestyle.

As she rings in her 43rd year, let's take a look at 5 of the moments she shared on Instagram which prove that she is the rightful 'queen of fitness' in Bollywood.

Dressed in purple gym wear, Bipasha gave her 'stiff back' a little bit of a workout on the green-coloured rolling wheel, while making an arc-like posture. "Dharma yoga wheel to my rescue today!!! Stiff back needs some love," she wrote in the caption.

Bipasha shared fitness goals as she donned a blue top and white shorts along with black shoes for an intensive squat workout."For The love for yourself - SQUAT," she wrote.

For some morning motivation to get up and exercise, one doesn't need to go further than watching the 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' actor's morning routine. Dressed in a black top and yoga pants with a criss-cross design, Bipasha shared a sped-up time-lapse video where she did a number of high-energy exercises to work her entire body out, including push-ups and high-kicks.

For those who think fitness cannot be fun, Bipasha proved them wrong as she cycled in a lacey black floral outfit and slippers while laughing her heart out. "And some more cycling Love cycling... thinking I should start cycling in mumbai too," she wrote.

Amidst sweating it out in high-energy exercises, Bipasha does make sure to let everyone know that 'moderation' is necessary in order to sustain a fit and healthy lifestyle. In a post which featured a selfie where she donned an orange top and a pair of yoga pants, she wrote, "Today's angelic message- MODERATION- Moderation is of key importance. It is the level to live at. It is a healthy level. It blends the two extremes. It meets in the middle. It is a key vantage point to see the whole picture. It is reasonable and realistic. It is at the core".
