The official introduction for the model and actress on the Playboy website reads "Coming soon to Playboy Magazine and Playboy.com, a historic nude pictorial of Bollywood sensation Sherlyn Chopra, the first Indian woman to appear in the magazine.
"Sherlyn Chopra, known for her acting and modelling career as she appeared in various Bollywood movies and was a guest on the hit reality TV show Big Boss (season 3). Don't miss the photos that have everyone in South Asia talking.'
Chopra posted nude images from her shoot on Twitter , but these were removed by authorities. The images have since been leaked widely on the internet.
