Indian singer, model, and Bollywood actress Sherlyn Chopra is set to become the first ever Indian to grace the cover of Playboy Magazine in their November issue this year. This is a highly controversial move on the part of Chopra, mainly since Playboy is banned in her native country of India. The announcement of her decision to pose nude for Playboy has already caused a stir amongst traditional Indians in the media such as media commentator Gayatri Sankar. Sankar told the New York Daily News that “At a time when innocent women across the nation from Gujarat to Guwahati have been subjected to sexual abuse and humiliation, one wonders if Sherlyn Chopra’s pictures wound a woman’s integrity.”

Despite these negative criticisms, Sherlyn Chopra seems to be positive and upbeat about her decision. She told BBC Hindi

“I have become the first Indian to pose naked for Playboy, nobody can take that achievement from me…It is not an easy task to be nude in front of the camera and look good at the same time.”

Her enthusiasm extended all the way to the Playboy Mansion where she spent time with Hugh Hefner and the other Playboy Bunnies. She tweeted pictures of her time there expressing that she already missed staying at the mansion.

Although it has not been confirmed, sources have indicated that Chopra may have actually paid for cover space in Playboy magazine. If this is true, since Playboy doesn’t usually take on paid models who are abroad, Chopra may have paid anywhere from 35 to 40 lakh rupees, which roughly translates to $63,000 to $72,000.

Until the November issue of Playboy is released, the Indian community both in America and India will have to wait to see the effects of the provocative career move of Sherlyn Chopra.
