Sherlyn Chopra was just another starlet on the block until Playboy magazine came calling. The 28-year old model became the first Indian on the cover of the adult magazine and tweeted pictures of her photoshoot in July this year.
Following tradition, Sherlyn was invited to stay at the coveted 'Playboy' Mansion and met Hugh Hefner himself the day after she arrived. She let go of all her inhibitions (and clothes) by roaming the halls in her birthday suit, bonding with fully dressed crew members. She later posted her nude pics on the social networking site, Twitter and declared she was most comfortable in the buff.
Praise was not one-sided. The official 'Playboy' website called Sherlyn, a 'Bollywood Legend'. In July, a teaser ad on the website showed a wet Sherlyn with the line 'coming soon to Playboy'.
Soon the model was the cynosure of media attention and even though she had previously worked in movies like 'Dil Bole Hadippa' and 'Raqeeb', they were small roles with no scope for Sherlyn to shine. She landed a big break with when director Rupesh Paul casted her in 'Kamasutra 3D'. The lead actress will shed her clothes for nude scenes integral to the script. But to avoid trouble over the shooting, the director chose to move the action overseas, and shoot in studios in Los Angeles. This film is the first 3D film of a trilogy, with 4D and 5D sequels. To unveil the first look of her film the model is headed to the Cannes Film Festival next year.
Sherlyn's comeback is the stuff dreams are made of. Will her movie succeed?
Only time will tell.

If Spike Jonze's 'Her' imagined a delicate, heartfelt romance between man and his artificially intelligent operating system, then 'Transcendence', directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, takes a less optimistic view of the future, cautioning us about the dangers of relying too heavily on technology. They're two sides of the same coin, but where 'Her' felt fresh, original, and forward-looking, Pfister's film trades in familiar clichés.
