A foreign adult mens’ magazine owned by a billionaire Indian NRI is offering actress, TV host, anchor and cricket commentator, the 5-month pregnant Mandira Bedi a whooping Rs 50 lakh (net of taxes and cuts) to go fully nude with her baby bump showing.
Mumbai-based gossip and entertainment journalist and publicist Flynn Remedios disclosed that the billionaire businessman whose family tree has its roots in India was a great fan of Mandira Bedi and wanted her to be the cover girl for a coming issue of his magazine. We were contacted in December 2010 for the shoot and have been trying to contact Bedi since then.
According to a statement released by Flynn Remedios, “We tried to contact Mandira Bedi but it seems she has changed her phone nos. She didn’t respond to us on Twitter either and seemed peeved about an article on a similar issue in the Hindustan Times,” said Remedios, adding, “However, the photo shoot if and when it takes place will be a very expensive, sophisticated and classy affair – if Mandira agrees to it that is – and will be shot by an internationally famous photographer team known for their nudes worldwide and immortalized by their calendars which are collectors’ items and sold for like USD 1000 a piece each year. Though she is expected to be fully nude, the photos will be art pics with a lot of light play and not much of her anatomy would show. We are not permitted to give any more info, and even this story was not meant for public consumption, but since the press got wind of it earlier and since Mandira didn’t respond to us, we decided to talk about it to the media.”
The same magazine has approached two more Bollywood actresses and one south siren for art nude photoshoots and negotiations are in progress, said Flynn Remedios. “One Bollywood actress has consented to do an art nude shoot and will be paid an undisclosed sum, upwards of Rs One Crore for a one day shoot, informed Remedios. The actress is among the top seven reigning queens of Bollywood is all he would say when queried about the identity of the individual
