The name Sherlyn Chopra may well be "on the lips of millions" right now but Playboy magazine seems to have overstated their future Miss November's importance in Bollywood just a tad bit. "Bollywood Goddess" is the title of her photo album on the magazine's website, and she is credited with appearing in "numerous Bollywood movies."
Perhaps Playboy could hardly be expected to know that model-singer-actress Sherlyn's films, most of which have names like Jawani Diwani: A Youthful Joyride and Naughty Boy, came and went without making the slightest dent in Bollywood. In many of the films, she's billed as Mona Chopra. Her best known film was Dil Bole Hadippa, co-starring Rani Mukerji and Shahid Kapoor, in which she appears as Sherlyn Chopra.
But while they may have got her position in the filmy pecking order wrong, Playboy does get one thing right. "Sherlyn has craved the spotlight since a young age" says her bio on the website, and, as the first Indian Playboy pin up, Sherlyn seems to have got what she wanted.
