Bollywood Star Is First Indian Woman To Go Nude For Playboy

Bollywood star, Sherlyn Chopra is set to be the first Indian woman to appear nude in Playboy. 

The 28-year-old actress, who has appeared in numerous small roles, is slated to be featured in the controversial magazine’s November issue. She is reportedly to have written to Playboy expressing her interest to be in it, saying she did not want to ‘miss the opportunity’ of posing nude for the world’s most famous magazine. Within three to four days of writing in, she got her answer.

“It’s not an easy task to be nude in front of the camera and look good at the same time,” she explains in an interview with BBC Hindi.

Her appearance in the magazine is not going to go down well in conservative India. Playboy is banned in the country and yet people can access it online. But despite the controversy she’ll face, Sherlyn is glad she has had the courage to go fully naked, “I have become the first Indian to pose naked for Playboy and nobody can take away that achievement from me.” Even so, she admitted she has not told her mother yet, she’s planning on visiting her to break the news.

Sherlyn is not one to shy away from controversy. Earlier this year, the sexy actress twitted a naked picture of herself after her birthday which was subsequently taken down by the social media site. In her latest foyer into adult magazine, Sherlyn is said to have been inspired by what she saw when she met Hugh Hefner and his girlfriends at his Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.

“I am thinking of making him my idol because he lives his life on his terms and conditions. I also live my life on my terms and conditions,” she said.
