Mumbai: Bong bombshell Bipasha Basu is unfazed by the discovery of her topless commercial on YouTube, shot way back in 1999.
The advertisement, which portrays Bipasha as a Rajasthani bride getting ready for her marriage to Vivek Oberoi, was shot in New York in 1999, as a lottery commercial, whose tag line read - ‘All you need is a dollar and a dream’.
In the process of getting ready for her wedding, Bips is shown nude in the ad, faintly exposing her breast, even as a dupatta caresses her hot body.
News has it that the sultry actress is stunned at the malafide intentions of the mind behind the unearthing of the steamy commercial and posting it on YouTube.
Talking to a news daily, Bipasha said, “In 1999, I was a model living in the USA and that is where I wanted to make my career. I was young and naïve and when I was told to turn towards the camera in the pose that eventually is in the ad, I did not understand anything about angles. In those days there was no monitor on the sets and I had no idea what was shot.”
“Becoming an actor was not something I had even thought of. I was a kid in bohemia. Today as a mature woman working in India, I would never do such a shoot, not because I have double standards, but because such shots are just not part of our sensibility. It isn’t cool here,” Bipasha said.
However, the actress clarified that her ad has nothing seedy or vulgar as she added, “It is a beautiful ad and I look great in it. It’s neither sleazy nor a porn. I am proud of the way I look in it.”
When enquired the reaction of her beau John Abraham and family on her ad, the Bong babe said, “John is not hyper at all and neither are my parents. In fact, John told me I looked really hot in it. It is so wonderful to have a supportive boyfriend and parents.”
