With the announcement that Bollywood actress Sherlyn Chopra will be on the cover—and nude in the pages—of Playboy magazine, the publication has kicked off yet another cultural scuffle.
Playboy is banned in India, where a culture of modesty is so prevalent that Indian cinema still frets over the raciness of on-screen kissing scenes. Chopra, who is not a huge star by any means but has a few movies under her belt, is being billed as the first Indian woman to appear nude in Playboy and on the cover of the magazine.
In its nearly 60 years of existence, Playboy has put 713 covers on newsstands (this includes some alternate or limited-edition covers). This is not the magazine's first controversial one, nor will it be the last. See the 10 Most Controversial Playboy Covers after the jump.
