AG83 asked, Now a days; lots of celebrities are coming with topless pictures like Vidya Balan; Bipasha Basu etc. What do u think about it? Would you want to do the same if situation requires?

Sofia Hayat answers, I wouldn't do a topless photoshoot. However, I have done a love scene in hollywood that was required. The love-making scene was important to the story. If its just for glamourisation I am against it. Why do we make a big issue of women showing their body when men do it all the time?

anupam asked, Hi Sofi...R u in any kind of relatioship ?

Sofia Hayat answers, Yes, I do have a boyfriend but i keep that part of my life private.
