Let’s talk something about the so-called ‘bold act’ in Indian terms. I remember the last time I called out people to stop living a hypocritic life or in fear of those narrow-minded sections of the society, was when I wrote an article on interesting female condom experiences shared by women who have used it. In this piece, let’s talk about Bollywood actresses’ photo shoots or so-called ‘daring’ photo shoots.
Let’s get to the point. Who says or where has it written that Indian girls and women can’t take nude photos or expose their skin? Who says that Indian actors can’t bare it all for a photo shoot or for a movie scene? For your information, they are actors and are in the industry to entertain others. If we do not have the answers, then why do we say BOLD, DARING or whatever whenever any actresses pose nude before a camera or act in an adult scene? What is so strange or abnormal in that? Yes, there’s nothing that only the Western people are free people and can do or live in whatever way they like. Indians are free, too, and so everyone should be allowed to do, dress or live in whatever way they like. But what is really sad for us is we are still not allowing that to happen in our society. Instead, it seems like we are going backward when it comes to the freedom of individuals. We need to get rid of this.
Anyway, here are 5 Bollywood actresses’ photo shoots where they played with their skin more than their outfits. Take a look and let’s stop calling them ‘daring’ hereafter.
1. Esha Gupta
Former beauty winner Esha Gupta took this daring photo and posted on Instagram and set the internet on fire last year.
2. Vidya Balan
Vidya Balan seems to be a veteran when it comes to posing topless for Dabboo Ratnani’s calendar. Here, the ‘Dirty Picture’ actress has played sexy, like a boss, with a newspaper.
3. Alia Bhatt

What do you say we should call them daring or consider them as just a normal thing?
