New Delhi: Sherlyn Chopra seems determined to beat competition Poonam Pandey and Sunny Leone and she will stop at nothing. On late Saturday, Chopra, the first Indian to be featured on the cover of Playboy magazine, tweeted a series of pornographic images which she said she hoped would help her trend worldwide on Twitter.
She gave fair warning to anyone likely to be offended by the images (of a woman masturbating with a cucumber) to "unfollow her immediately". In Lady Gaga style, she announced that would call her followers her 'lovers'. Untill 10 AM on Sunday morning, Twitter had not taken off the risqué photographs. It could not be verified whether the photographs, that show a woman's nude lower half of body, were of Chopra.
Hash-tagging her tweets with #TheSherlynChopraLeague, Chopra invited her followers to the orgy of her "private function" with suggestive tweets that said "I like it when you eat it."
A day after she posted a 'confession' of having slept with people for money, Chopra made no secret of her intention behind tweeting the graphic images.
"Name: Sherlyn Chopra....Open Agenda: To trend heavily today in India and/or Worldwide....Modus Operandi: Usage of a dirty image," she said.
"Dear all, had there been a hidden agenda behind my confession yesterday to trend heavily in India and/or world wide, I'd have most definitely posted a 'never seen before' dirty picture alongside my confession. The intent was very simple - to make it loud and clear that going forward I would make conscious decisions to lead a life filled with an abundance of faith and belief in the infinite powers which exist within our core."
She defended her decision saying: "Porn is not evil....all evil comes from humankind's darkened understanding, from ignorance, from false interpretation of life. Take it easy....it's just porn. If u don't like it, kindly unfollow......immediately."
Ever since she announced on Twitter that she will feature nude on the cover of Playboy magazine, the actor of mainly B-grade films, has never stopped creating ripples on social media websites, be it with raunchy pictures, teasers of her photoshoot, or as is in this case - outstanding confession of having accepted money for sex.
A series of 'confessional' tweets from the unverified account of Chopra, who supposedly tweets from the handle @SherlynChopra, shocked users on Friday. Chopra claimed in those tweets she has had paid sex in her life, but she is past that phase now. In the contrite posts - meant for her fans - a slightly defensive Chopra said it was up to people on how they wanted to perceive her after reading her tweets.
"The confessions of 'just a girl' - Dear all, before I proceed, let me make it very clear that the intent of sharing the following confessions. It is not to create public sympathy or to raise eyebrows or to project myself as a 'bad girl gone good', it's just to state a few facts. Physical intimacy with me at a price.... I've had sex for money, having indulged in out of free will.... but ever since I got back from LA in July this year, there has been a shift in my level of consciousness," Chopra said.
