Mumbai: No, Sherlyn Chopra is not just the average struggling actress or the girl who hankers for publicity. Her newest designation is that of a ‘Bollywood legend’. And this time, the shock comes from Hugh Hefner’s brainchild, the ‘Playboy’ magazine.
Apart from being endowed with the rare ‘honour’ of being the only Indian Playmate thus far, Sherlyn Chopra also has after her name the sobriquet of ‘Bollywood legend’. The Playboy website had put up a brief biography of their upcoming covergirl Sherlyn Chopra, and the description stated that Chopra was a ‘Bollywood legend’. As if that wasn’t enough, the magazine website went on to call Bollywood a ‘city’.
Only about ten films rich in the Hindi film industry, Sherlyn Chopra has already been anointed with the hefty tag of a ‘Bollywood legend’. The website also sheds light on the controversy queen’s background. The description reads, “After surprising the world through her tweets about being the first Indian woman to appear in the pages of Playboy magazine, the name Sherlyn Chopra has been on the lips of millions. Born on February 11th, 1984, Sherlyn was raised by her Muslim mother and Christian father, who was a doctor until the age of 55.”
The website further adds, “With a younger sister who is a disc jockey in Hyderabad, India and a brother who lives in Auckland, New Zealand working as a computer software engineer, Sherlyn has craved the spotlight since a young age. Since winning a beauty pageant at the age of 17, she’s moved to the city of Bollywood, Mumbai, to appear in numerous Bollywood films.”
Clearly, what India couldn’t do to Sherlyn, the West has already done. With several nude photos and about ten films to her credit, Sherlyn is now a ‘Bollywood legend’. Wonder what the actual ‘legends’ of Bollywood have to say about Playboy’s exaggerated statements!
