Bengali bombshell Paoli Dam shocked everyone with her bold and sexually explicit role in Hate Story. The actress also posed topless for the poster of the film, sitting on a man's lap in a rather sensuous position. Marketed as the first on-screen erotica of Bollywood, the film narrated the story of a reporter who is abused by a wealthy man. Paoli also went nude for many explicit sex scenes in the movie.
01Gone are the days when actresses used to drape themselves in nine yards of fabric. Today's actresses don't hesitate to bare it all. While some may term it as the demand of the script, some just shed it all for publicity. Let's take a look at B-Town actresses who went topless for movie posters.
Poonam Pandey is known for shedding off her clothes at the drop of a hat. So when she posed naked for the poster of her first Bollywood flick, Nasha, it hardly came as a surprise. The actress merely covered her essentials with black placards, leaving nothing to imagination. Though the movie failed to create a buzz, this poster definitely kept Poonam in the news for quite sometime.
Kareena Kapoor Khan grabbed attention with the first poster of Saif Ali Khan-starrer Kurbaan. Kareena dared to bare for the sepia-toned poster. Directed by Rensil D'Silva, the film was a romantic-thriller. Saif and Kareena's lip-lock too made headlines for quite some time. Kareena allegedly had requested the director to delete the sex scenes from the movie as she was worried about how her parents would take it. Shiv Sena activists tore down Kurbaan posters alleging that the posters were immoral and could corrupt the mind of children and women.
Bollywood's bombshell, Neha Dhupia made headlines with a steamy poster for her film Julie. The actress' bare back sprawled across the bed with a hot pink number covering her bare essentials was how the poster looked. Julie, which delved on the aspect of lesbian relationships, also had Amrita Arora in the lead role. The film received flak for its overtly bold content and steamy sex scenes. But Neha Dhupia knew how to sell the film!
Sunny Leone also shed her clothes for the poster of her film Ragini MMS 2. Sunny is seen staring into the camera as she poses rather aesthetically for the poster of the horror-thriller. Ragini MMS 2 was a sequel to Ragini MMS. Needless to say that the poster garnered the requisite attention and the film fared well at the box-office.
