Actress Sonakshi Sinha is upset about news of her appearing on Maxim in a bikini. She tweeted to clarify that she has not posed in a bikini for the cover of Maxim magazine.
This denial comes just as photographs of Sonakshi in a white bikini appeared on the Internet and were published on the India Today website. However, the Maxim magazine cover actually shows Sonakshi wearing a black dress.
Sonakshi wrote on Twitter, “Quite shocked to see India Today carrying an article on me appearing on Maxim in a bikini!! Yeah right”
“These guys generally have their facts and figures right! Got the fact that I'm on Maxim right, but the figure (pun intended) completely wrong! Would've been smart if they checked out the magazine before writing whatever they felt like. It's not about me anymore but about their credibility,” she added.
Even though Sonakshi is set to shed her image of a simple village girl (from Dabangg) in her upcoming films, she has time and again stated that she will not wear revealing clothes to gain popularity.
Evidently miffed by the incident, Sonakshi adds, “I wouldve let it pass if my family was not dragged into it. The journalist in question, being a woman, shouldve realised that respectability and family values are not to be tampered with. Especially not mine.”
