Sherlyn Chopra, 28, caused outrage after tweeting some pictures from the photoshoot which will be in the November issue. The magazine is banned in India but can be accessed on the internet.
The 28-year-old actress admitted it was “not easy” to pose for the shoot but explained that she could not “miss the opportunity of posing nude for the world’s most established adult magazine”.
Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has confirmed in a tweet that Sherlyn will appear in the magazine’s November issue.
India is not only battling an epidemic of sex crimes against women, but also finding it increasingly difficult to comfortably integrate Western moral standards with Indian traditions in an increasingly globalized world.
Columnists have dismissed her as a C-list actress while others have laid a more serious charge, pointing that India is already struggling to control an epidemic of sex crimes.
