Poonam Pandey certainly kicked up a lot of fuss for nothing this weekend. She's 20, Indian, and absolutely gorgeous. And she told the whole world she was going to run naked through the stadium at the India-Pakistan World Cup if India won, politics and moral code be damned.
“I don’t care if people have a problem,” she told reporters. “I am one of the most downloaded models online. I don’t need to do this for publicity. I am doing what I want to do.”
“Showing happiness through nudity is against Indian values. I must congratulate her that she feels happy enough to do so, but there are other ways to show happiness,” says Vinod Bansal of Vishwa Hindu Parishad.
Shalini Thackeray of the right-wing Maharashtra Navnirman Sena says, “We are totally against such vulgarity and obscenity.”
Looks like they needn't get so up in arms. Poonam didn't show up anyway! And now she wants to strip somewhere less controversial ... like Paris.
