And now for some nostalgic shots!
If you thought this was a recent trend, Mamta Kulkarni will tell you otherwise.
The actress who disappeared from the filmi scene ever since her film China Gate tanked, was one of the first actresses to do a topless cover. Back in the day, it was quite a scandal and also landed the actress with a lawsuit filed for obscenity.
