Sherlyn Chopra might have done some B-grade movies, but for Playboy she's a Bollywood legend. In a write-up describing Sherlyn, the starlet has been tagged as a Bollywood legend in the accompanying pic. Sample this: "Since winning a beauty pageant at the age of 17, she’s moved to the city of Bollywood, Mumbai, to appear in numerous Bollywood films."
Sherlyn Chopra is the first Indian model to pose for Playboy. The starlet also posted a series of her nude pictures clicked during the photoshoot for Playboy magazine.
She later tweeted: “I shud b given a Bharat Ratna award-d highest civilian award of d Republic India given 4 d highest degree of service 2 the nation. Seriously! sic)".
The 28-year-old admitted that she misses Hugh Hefner and her friends in the Playboy mansion.
"With Ava Fabian-a five time Playboy cover girl and my new BFF! With a sweetheart at the Mansion. M gonna miss all my playboy friends......never mind though, will be back soon! The one place I'm gonna miss the most at the Mansion is the dining area...Huge thanks to the entire staff (sic),” she added.
On sleeping with Hugh Hefner
It’s known to be an unsaid rule that all Playboy cover girls must share the bed with the porn magazine’s mogul, Hugh Hefner. But, our very own starlet Sherlyn Chopra, 28, says she did not sleep with the 86-year-old to land the jackpot deal.
“I did not sleep with Mr Hefner. No one at the (Playboy) mansion has till date made an indecent proposal to me. I love my naked skin. Felt quite comfortable displaying my nakedness … that is all,” says Chopra.
The Sherlyn cover will hit stands in December. “It is the first time that the magazine has executed as many as 15 concepts for a model. When people see me, they will go wow,” she says, undeterred by the backlash. “People back there could not believe that an Indian could do this!”
How she bagged the deal
It all started when she got in touch with Hefner over email in May this year, and expressed her desire to be on the cover. “While most girls are first called for a test shoot, I should thank him for having faith in me by providing me the opportunity without an audition.”
