Born and brought up in Mumbai, Diana Penty is the daughter of a Parsi father and a Christian mother. She is a Mass Media graduate from St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai.
She started modeling from the age of 20, and walked the ramp at the Indo-Italian Festival in September 2005 for Italian designers Trussadi and Ferre. Ever since, she hasn’t looked back, and has worked with the best of designers like Rohit Bal, Rina Dhaka and Wendell Rodricks.
A major turning point of her life came when this 5 feet 9.5 inches sexy girl was chosen to replace Deepika Padukone as the brand ambassador of world-renowned cosmetics brand Maybelline. She was seen endorsing the New White Fashion Stay UV fashion range of products from Maybelline. Besides this, Diana also bagged quite a few advertisements, like one for Garnier and another for Virgin mobile, with Ranbir Kapoor and Genelia D’Souza. Thanks to her impressive work, she has also worked with young talents like Devanshu Pahuja and Nikhil Kumar. She has also adorned magazines like Elle, Cosmopolitan and Verve in the past.
Diana Penty made her Bollywood debut with the film ‘Cocktail’. She played the role of a simple girl, and was cast alongside Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone. Her performance was much appreciated, although she was supposed to debut in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar, but was dropped due to some reason. The success of Cocktail has not even sunk in and she has already been signed for a Tamil film named Biriyani.
