This is what she looks like, she has an amazing body," Sharma said. In his Twitter feed on Monday, Sharma said he would release a series of photos from the shoot proving his version of the story. While Malek's pose on the cover preserves a scant degree of modesty, any nudity is still very much frowned upon in conservative India — and indeed in Muslim-majority Pakistan.

A Pakistani actress who posed in the nude for an Indian magazine with the initials of Pakistan's feared and powerful intelligence agency on her arm has triggered fury across the conservative nation. Veena Malik's photo on the website of FHM India, in advance of its publication in the magazine's December issue, has been lighting up social network websites since earlier this week. Many here anticipate a backlash, as nationalists and Islamists regularly stage rallies against anything they deem an insult to Islam or to the national honor.
