Netizens as per custom even began trending hilarious meme fest on the microblogging site Twitter.
However, on a subsequent note, very few people remember that a Bollywood actress had taken a similar initiative years before Ranveer for a magazine photoshoot, though the response that she received happens to be the polar opposite.
Here’s what happened:
Here we are talking about 90s diva Mamta Kulkarni, who stepped in the film industry with the hit film Tiranga, and established her feet in the industry in a very short time.
Despite working in popular films like ‘Aashiq Awara’ alongside Saif Ali Khan, Kulkarni is being remembered for the controvery that erupted for a magazine photoshoot, wherein she was featured topless on the cover page.
Where the responses varies?
Instead of receiving praises like in the current scenario with Ranveer Singh, this photoshoot created a huge ruckus in Kulkarni’s life.
Mamta was booked for doing a topless photoshoot, and had to pay a penalty to the court.
If reports are to be belived, Mamta used to wear a burqa to reach the court in order to avoid the huge crowd of media. She even received death threats by many who were offended by her shoot.
