Want to get famous? STRIP!
In the fickle world of showbiz, it's rather hard to guage public reaction and determine what works.
Talent, good looks, the 'X-factor' -- everything runs the risk of going unnoticed. But stripping? That works every single time!
Don't believe us? Take a look at these women, who dared to bare and grabbed plenty of eyeballs.
This starlet faded into oblivion after appearing in a couple of B-grade movies like Red Swastik and Game. Even her Bigg Boss apearance did not keep her in the limelight for too long.
So, she decided to re-surface in a way everyone would notice. She shot a series of hot nude pictures and posted them on her website. Needless to say, Sherlyn was suddenly trending on the internet.
