Kingfisher Calendar

The Kingfisher Bikini Calendar, or the Kingfisher Calendar, is a calendar published by the United Breweries Group of India annually since 2003 that features models in swimsuits. Described by Rediff as "arguably the most prestigious [modelling assignment] in India", it is credited with advancing the careers of models and actresses like Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone, Yana Gupta, Ujjwala Raut, Nargis Fakhri, Bruna Abdullah, Lisa Haydon, Karishma Kotak and Angela Jonsson. Photographer Atul Kasbekar has been associated with the calendar since its inception. Kasbekar along with Vijay Mallya are credited with creating the idea of the annual Kingfisher Calendar.
