How big a deal is Sherlyn's nude Playboy cover?
The Playboy covergirl has made an unexpected career move on her rivals Sunny Leone and Poonam Pandey.

New Delhi: Model-turned actress Sherlyn Chopra is treading on clouds these days, fighting off jet lag with red wine and making sure the world knows of her amazing windfall. The Playboy covergirl has made an unexpected career move on her rivals Sunny Leone and Poonam Pandey.

The deal is official. Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner tweeted that Chopra will be the first Indian to appear nude on the Playboy cover. The Playboy team said it could not wait to post her shoot pictures on Twitter. And Chopra reciprocated with a grateful and very public thank you post that included, in the same sentence, some 'tight hugs' and 'warm regards'.

"Bollywood starlet Sherlyn Chopra will be the first Indian to appear nude in Playboy, in the November issue," Hefner tweeted. Chopra said: "Yipeeeeeeee!!! Mr.Hefner, huge thanks 2 you and 2 the entire team! U're my HERO!!! Cannot wait 2 get back to LA 4 the promotions!"

The official @PlayboyDotCom channel on Twitter posted "Indian women are gorgeous & we're excited that you modeled for us."

Chopra has some great ambitions. She said she wanted to outdo Pamela Anderson's record of Playboy covers.

She is back from a fruitful stay at the famous Playboy mansion. Chopra must be doing something right in her career. There are at the moment only two women who can compare to what she's achieving - adult entertainment star Sunny Leone and Twitter celebrity Poonam Pandey known for her lascivious photo shoots. Both Pandey and Leone have film deals and are busy shooting for them.

While Leone is already an established name in the adult entertainment industry in Canada, Pandey is yet to see an international project. For models in the West, the Playboy cover is a very big deal and it's certainly a coup of sorts for Chopra.

The Playboy magazine has made stars of actors as early as the 1950s, including Marilyn Monroe. But it remains to be seen if this will change Chopra's future.
