"Sherlyn Chopra, a Bollywood film actress, will become the first woman from
India to strip naked in Playboy."
The 28-year-old knockout wrote to the magazine and suggested the idea
herself, the BBC reported.
They got back to her within a few days to accept.
Fans will have to wait till the November issue circulates to get a glimpse
of Chopra. A press conference earlier this week heralded the addition of a
"Bollywood goddess" to the pantheon of beauties who've appeared on the pages
of Hugh Hefner's magazine.
But her decision to pose caused a controversy in her native India where the
granddaddy of all adult magazines is banned. A critic, cited by the Daily
Mail, wrote "one wonders if Sherlyn Chopra's pictures wound a woman's
Chopra, who has had small roles in a handful of Bollywood flicks, is unfazed
by the criticism.
"I have become the first Indian to pose naked for Playboy", she said to the
BBC, "and nobody can take away that achievement from me."
She uploaded snapshots from her tour of the famous Playboy mansions in Los
Angeles to her Twitter account".
