Yes.It is possible.
See this article: Mallika to get her body insured!
12 Aug, 2009 12:00 am ISTlRenuka Vyavahare/INDIATIMES MOVIES

Its quite common in the western world and Hollywood celebrities to get their body parts insured but the craze seems to be catching on in Bollywood as well.

Mallika Sherawat recently revealed on a networking site as to how shed like her producers to insure her body! It all started when a fan complimented Mallikas fab body and gave her an example of soccer star Christiano Ronaldo insuring his legs for a whopping 90m. Mallika responded to his compliment by revealing her secret desire, that of insuring her body which is probably her only important asset.

Mallikas the first Indian celebrity who has openly expressed her desire but internationally celebs like Jennifer Lopez and David Beckham made insuring body parts fashionable.

Lopez had insured her bootylicious asset for a whopping $ 1 billion while Beckham had insured his legs for $70 million ...more

Very much possible ...Rachel Hunter had a $1 million insurance policy taken out on her legs and it being a big deal back in the 90s. Then last year Mariah Carey was the spokesperson for Gillettes Legs of a Goddess campaign and her legs were insured for a whopping $1 billion. (I wonder how much a razor nick would be worth - five figures at least.) That massive insurance policy was probably just a stunt by Gillette to get publicity.

There are a lot of celebrity body parts insured for insane amounts of cash. In some cases sponsors need protection if celebrities can no longer represent their brands but the overblown amounts of money theyre insured for is surely more for publicity. In other cases celebrities rely on a specific part for their livelihood.
