Indian actress KHUSHBOO has lashed out against men's magazine Maxim after the publication ran a fake photo of her in a tiny swimsuit.

The 1990s star - who sparked controversy among the Indian conservative culture in 2005 by voicing her open support of premarital sex with protection - lodged a complaint with police in Chennai, India, against the local edition of the publication.

The police chief said copies of the magazine would be pulled from shelves. Maxim has since apologised.
