We’ve all seen the off-the-set pix of Sherlyn Chopra stark naked at her Playboy magazine shoot. Now, Sherlyn tells us when the magazine will (finally) be out what the entire experience at the shoot was like.
Team MM: Tell us about the Playboy photoshoot? When will it release?
Sherlyn: The July-August double cover is out. So from among the four months which are remaining in the year for 2013, it could be any one of them.
This was the best photoshoot of my life – the best – on all accounts. The intent of having gone full-monty was to resurrect my career. But then I really didn’t know that in trying to push the envelope, I would end up opening it, meaning that I would not just resurrect my career also myself, my life. That’s what really happened.
In a very strange and surreal way, Playboy was the catalyst in the rise of my level of consciousness.
Team MM: What was your family’s reaction to your Playboy pix?
Sherlyn: I’m not in touch with many members of my family. My brother is in Auckland and happy with his wife. I’m sure he must have got to know – through the internet – about my recent global achievement, accomplishment. But then, I don’t really want to know his feedback or his reaction – even they are in my favour.
My mother was very proud of the fact that Playboy – the number one adult magazine across the globe – had managed to change me emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
My sister was – at the time – very proud of me. This was July 2012. But after I had signed Kama Sutra 3D, she was forced (or compelled) to think (or believe) that I’m moving in the wrong direction. I guess her friends or her fiancé must have told her that Kama Sutra 3D would turn out to be some kind of software that would be compared to pornography.
I didn’t feel the need to justify my decision of having taken it up. I guess, today I’m at a place – mentally, emotionally or spiritually – that I’m answerable strictly to myself. I really don’t need to justify what I do, why I do, what I say, why I say.
I know that I have been judged, I’m being judged and forever will be judged until I go to the grave. That’s ok! But then, I know that there are people out there who have a real heart which has no place for prejudice and judgement and they understand me when I speak from the heart. And that’s all that really matters!
