Paoli Dam might be in news for her bold scenes in Vikram Bhatt's Hate Story, but she wants to go one step ahead and get herself painted in buff, Kate Winslet style.
The actor wishes MF Husain was around to do the painting, reports Mid Day.
But why the sudden urge of a nude portrait? Well, according to the tabloid, Paoli got this naked 'inspiration' after watching Titanic 3D.
“Paoli wished Husain saab were around, so she could have requested him to paint her like Leo sketches Kate, wearing only a heart-shaped precious stone and nothing else,” a source told the tabloid.
The actor's performance in Chatrak apparently impressed Vikram Bhatt and Vivek Agnihotri.
“The conviction with which she did the explicit scenes with frontal nudity also impressed Vikram and Vivek to cast her in the film,” adds the source.

Who's this girl?
Paoli Dam created a buzz with the poster of Hate Story, showing a tattooed bare back and a gun placed strategically to titillate the viewers. Paoli, who received flak for her bold scene in Bengali film Chatrak in 2011, is making her foray into Bollywood with Hate Story.
Directed by Vivek Agnihotri, the movie, which also features Nikhil Dwivedi and Gulshan Devaiah, is based on a woman's vengeance and how she uses her sexuality as a weapon. It will release on April 20.
