A Bollywood actress has defended her decision to pose naked for Playboy after she was accused of shaming India by stripping off.
Sherlyn Chopra has sparked outrage by becoming the first Indian woman to appear on the cover of the men's magazine, which is banned in the conservative country.
The 28-year-old beauty has yet to tell her Muslim mother about the pictures, but insists she has no regrets.
Chopra tells 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. People feel that I have brought shame to the country but some have encouraged me as well."
Chopra's spread will appear in the upcoming November (12) issue of Playboy.
