“It is not an easy task to be nude in front of the camera and look good at the same time,” the New York Daily news quoted her as telling BBC. The 28-year-old actress will strip for the famed men’s magazine’s November issue, but her decision to shed her sari is under fire in her homeland, where the magazine is banned.
“I have become the first Indian to pose naked for Playboy, and nobody can take away that achievement from me,” she had told BBC Hindi. Despite the ban on the print edition of Playboy, Indians from Goa to New Delhi will be able to access the steamy snapshots on the Internet.
Playboy decided to feature the “Bollywood goddess” in its November issue after Chopra wrote to the magazine with the idea for the sexy spread.
