I Love Money And I did Nude For Money--Sherlyn
Bollywood starlet Sherlyn Chopra, who made it to the headlines by being the first Indian female to pose in the buff for Playboy, has been facing a lot of flak, and getting a few praises too, for her act.
In an interview to a Mumbai newspaper, Sherlyn Chopra said: “I know people in India feel that it is no big deal and some have called me a s*** and such things on my account.
"Some of the comments are very nasty and people feel that I have brought shame to the country but some have encouraged me as well. So, I realised that it is not going to be love all the way.”
Sherlyn admitted she loved money. “I have a great love for money and I feel no shame in wanting to have more because wanting a happier life is no crime.
"I have not sold my soul to the devil. I have displayed my naked body but I still feel that I am an Indian.”
Sherlyn says she is yet to find a like-minded Indian male. “It is very hard to find a guy who can embrace you. Most of the guys have the typical Indian mentality. I am hoping that I find somebody who will see my heart and soul.”
On her meeting with Playboy founder-owner Hugh Hefner, Sherlyn said: “I realised that Hefner has a fixed routine. He watches films, eats and sleeps as per his fixed timings. I also met Ava Fabian and other playmates there.”
Sherlyn reveals that the Indian color festival Hole was used as one of the themes for the Playboy shoot.
"The pictures you see are about me in different colors, as they were quite amused by Holi. There were various themes like vintage jewellery, vintage costumes, the James Bond girl theme and the mystery woman theme.”
Asked whether she ever felt uncomfortable being in the nude in the presence of Playboy crew, she replied: “Not once did I feel awkward or embarrassed. They could not believe that I am an Indian and I could be so candid about my body.”
Sherlyn is ready to do nude scenes in Bollywood flicks, but with a rider. "I don’t mind doing the next season of Swayamvar or a good A-list film or endorsements.
"As far as posing nude in a film is concerned, I won’t mind doing it if I have to do it with a filmmaker who would do it like the Bhatts do.”
