Competing with the likes of worldwide stunners like Beyonce, Rihanna, Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton, India’s only erotica icon and Playboy cover girl Sherlyn Chopra, has bagged the 63rd spot on the list of Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2013, in a poll on the international website AskMen.
Surpassing names like Rachel Weisz, Tina Fey, Katie Holmes, Kate Moss, Kim Kardashian, Charlize Theron and India’s Bipasha Basu (who bagged the 67th spot), Sherlyn scored up.
The site seemed floored with her, stating “while some of her more traditional countrymen chastised her for the bold move (to pose for Playboy), Sherlyn stood firm, posed for the iconic mag and proudly took her place in history.”
“Around 20 million readers are said to have voted for this poll, which makes it a list that truly reflects who men from all over the world really celebrate,” noted Sherlyn’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar. What’s more! The list is also one of the few which refrains from picking names for looks, face value and popularity.
Instead the readers have chosen more wisely, going with women who represent the complete package of beauty, brains, ambition and charm. No doubt, being chosen as a woman of substance is more awesome than just being a pretty face or a hot bod; and Sherlyn must feel proud of it. Or would it be more appropriate to say that she has begun making her country proud of her.
Apart from being on the cover of Playboy next year, Sherlyn may also set foot at the Cannes Film Festival; playing the female lead in Rupesh Paul’s international motion picture Kamasutra 3D.
