Search for Vidya Balan online and be prepared for some racy pictures. You will definitely find one of Vidya in a lacy, black bikini or an even more revealing silver number.
Many were shocked by the steamy photos, but no one more than Vidya herself! When asked about her “debut” on Maxim Magazine, she believed someone had made a mistake. She told TOI, “When I heard there was a picture of me in a bikini on a magazine cover, I thought someone was being mistaken for me because I haven’t done a shoot like this. But I was shocked when I saw it. I will be taking proper legal action against the people who are responsible for this.”
The photograph uses photo software to morph an existing picture of Vidya’s face onto the body of someone else. Last December, a similar morphed photo appeared of Sonakshi Sinha on Maxim magazine’s cover. Other actresses to fall victim to this kind of defamation include Khushboo and Celina Jaitly.
Vidya’s introduction into Bollywood was defined by traditional and modest roles. However, after her most recent releases – Ishqiya and No One Killed Jessica, Vidya teeters on that line between bold and controversial and the actress is not stopping there. Her forthcoming projects include the intriguing The Dirty Picture playing Bollywoo’s Silk Smitha.
