Poonam Pandey (born 11 March 1991) is an Indian film actress known for her works in Bollywood, Kannada and Telugu cinema. She is also a nude model.[2] She began her career as a model.[3] She became one of the top nine contestants of the Gladrags Manhunt and Megamodel Contest and appeared on the cover page of the fashion magazine.[4][5]

Media spotlight[edit | edit source]

Pandey became popular through her social media accounts, including Twitter when she started posting her semi-nude photos. Her revealing photos have received much media attention.[6]

She rose to media spotlight when she promised to strip for the Indian cricket team if it won the 2011 Cricket World Cup.[7][8] India indeed lifted the World Cup; however, Pandey did not fulfill her promise due to public disapproval, but later claimed she was denied permission by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).[9] However, she did upload a video on her mobile app, where she is seen stripping naked at the Wankhede Stadium at night.

In 2012, she posed nude after Kolkata Knight Riders won the IPL 5.[10]

She went on to have her own mobile application developed. The app was banned by Google soon after its launch in the Play Store and currently available in her official site only. She maintains this application with regular updates on her life, and also uses it as a platform to upload her explicit erotic content and nude videos.[11]

She also uploaded a sex tape in which she was with her then boyfriend, on to Instagram that she later deleted.[12][13][14]

Film career[edit | edit source]

In 2013, she was the female lead of the film Nasha, playing a teacher who ends up having a sexual relationship with one of her students. While Rediff stated that she excelled as a seductress in the role,[15] the Mumbai Mirror said she did "not play seductresses but a proper, responsible drama teacher" and that "Pandey makes an effort but isn't quite there".[16]

The posters for the film, which featured her "clad in nothing, but two placards tactfully placed to cover her body", angered people and a group of protesters tore the posters and set them on fire on 20 July 2013 in Mumbai.[17] The general secretary of Shiv Sena Chitrapat objected to Pandey's skin showing in the advertisements, saying, "We find the poster highly vulgar and derogatory and won't allow such hoardings."[18]

Pandey signed on to star in the planned sequel to Nasha as Anita.[19]
