Sherlyn Chopra has gone where no Bollywood actress has gone before. The 28-year-old is the first Indian actress to pose nude for the cover of Playboy.

Unlike most models that go through an exhaustive round of auditions and test shoots to even be considered for the iconic men’s magazine, Chopra simply wrote a letter to Hugh Hefner explaining why she would be the perfect candidate for his publication. The staff wrote her back accepting her request within a week.

Scheduled to hit newsstands in November, the history-making cover is, of course, creating controversy in India where women’s bodies are so sacred they are covered with burkas. “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,” wrote Indian columnist Gayatri Sankar.

Despite the debate, Chopra stands by her decision to pose nude wholeheartedly. “I have become the first Indian to pose naked for Playboy and nobody can take away that achievement from me,” Chopra told the BBC. “My sister is proud of my achievement. I haven’t told anything to my mother, but I think I will visit her and tell her that she has to accept me the way I am.”

After their meeting, the actress couldn’t help but sing the praises of her new boss Hugh Hefner. “I had fun meeting him and his girlfriends,” she said. “I am thinking of making him my idol because he lives his life on his terms and conditions. I also live my life on my terms and conditions.”

She also took to Twitter to call Hef  the “most compassionate men on planet Earth.” And, now that she has posed nude, Chopra is reportedly thinking of making the jump into nude films. “The youth is racing towards liberalization,” she said, “and that’s why being unconventional in your choices is no longer a taboo.”
