Earlier, when asked about her nude moment in Parched, the actress told ETimes that, while it was daunting, she believed it allowed her to explore her body and sexuality.
She stated, “It was a little daunting to have to be naked on camera. I can now wear it all anyplace. I’m pleased with the form and size of my body. Of course, the film went to a lot of locations, which led to further employment and admiration.”
She stated that she needed a job that allowed her to explore her sexuality and body image, such as her character in ‘Parched.’ She added that in Bollywood, celebs are frequently told what to do with their bodies.
