Yukta Mookhey belongs to a North Indian
family. Her mother Aruna runs a grooming workshop called Swiss Chalet at
Santa Cruz, while her father Inderlal holds the post of managing director at
the Ragz Clothing Company. Yukta spent her school days in the Gulf. Yukta
has received training in Hindustani classical music for three years. This
talented lady has also won a number of essay and public speaking
competitions and was considering a career in mass communications and
computer graphics. She was a third year student of Zoology at the Kelkar
College when she started modeling and did a few ramp shows for Avon
cosmetics, L'Oreal and the likes. Her mother encouraged her to enter the
Femina Miss India contest, where she won the title of Miss India World. In
December 1999, Yukta was crowned Miss World at the Olympia Theatre in
London, beating 93 other contestants from all over the world. This set the
record of Indian women winning the contest three years in a row.
After her modeling stint, she tried her hand at writing books. Ultimately
Yukta decided to join the Hindi film Industry. At first she was a little
apprehensive, and even had admitted in an interview that she had doubts
about whether she would get to act opposite male actors who would match her
height, as she stands almost six feet tall! However, Yukta seems to have no
ego hassles and is open to offers even if she has to star alongside little
known newcomers in the industry instead of popular actors. She debuted
opposite Aftab Shivdasani and new comer Saeed Zulfi in A. Muthu's Pyaasa.
The film sunk without a trace at the box office. She also got the role of
the leading lady in director Sanjar Shreya's "Bandhak", a romantic thriller
starring Dino Morea and Namrata Shirodkar, but the project got shelved. She
even had to opt out of Manisha Koirala's venture "Market" due to injuries
she had incurred.
Yukta's favorite cusine is Thai food and she likes prawns in garlic sauce.
The actor she adores is Brad Pitt and she admires works of the author Jane
Austen. Her favorite holiday destination is France, as told to the judges at
the Miss World pageant.
