She is Bold, She is Controversy Queen. She is Poonam Pandey!
Actress Poonam Pandey reveals that it was her desire to get noticed by Bollywood.
She rose to fame with her claim of baring all if India won the Cricket World Cup in 2011.
In an interview she spilled beans on how she had an idea of the announcement, she said:
I was sitting with my journalist friends and we were discussing about doing something really big. I had done some 25-30 calendar shoots. All were big enough, but that recognition was missing.
Then I saw there were so many girls in this industry who had worked with the Khans and the Kapoors, but people still did not recognise them as they know only Khans and Kapoors.
In such a scenario, it’s very difficult to get your own identity, especially if you come from nowhere. Hence, to get that identity and recognition, I thought only controversy could help.
Poonam is best known for sharing bold and semi-nude images on her social media accounts.
Furthermore, she added she would love to see herself “fully covered in a sari and in a ghoonghat”.
