Move over popular firecrackers and bombs. They are passé! This Diwali, we have a hot, explosive combo of bold and the beautiful - Bollywood bombshells! And we asked some of them what is it like to be tagged as a Sex Bomb.
Celina Jaitley, popularly called the bikini babe of film industry, says, "If people call me a Bomb, I think it's a compliment for me. Anything like Bikni Babe or Atom Bomb or Sexy Girl makes me happy. There is nothing wrong to earn any of these tags, as I believe this is also a kind of recognition to the beauty and boldness one has. I believe I am bold and beautiful. Bold appearances are my assets. I can even redo the bikini appearance of Jaansheeen. I am happy that I have an identity in Bollywood and my fans know me as a sexy girl."While Celina says she can carry off the sex bomb tag with élan, Amrita Arora feels embarrassing to be associated with such raunchy names. "It happened with me once. One guy called me an 'Atom Bomb'. It is so embarrassing and offensive to be identified as Bombs and Patakhas. It's like demeaning the identity of a woman. I don't think it's decent to relate women with such raunchy words. We are public figures but it doesn't mean that one can call us anything," retorts Arora.
But there is another hottie who wants to take Celina's line of thinking. Mirchi girl Rakhi Sawant believes that she is the real bomb of Bollywood. "You have seen what happens when I perform. A bomb can't create so much of dhamaka as my dance can. And this Diwali, I invite people to come and see my shows and they will realize how powerful I am. I love to be called an atom bomb because I am what I am known as," quips Sawant.
So, which is more explosive this Diwali? You decide!
