Recently Aruna Shields made news for posing completely nude in a Hindi film. The actress of foreign origin who recently made her Bollywood debut opposite Vivek Oberoi in Prince is bold enough to pose completely nude in her second Hindi film Mr Singh Mrs Mehta . Apparently around 60 girls rejected the film before Aruna Shields green-lit the project because they were wary of posing nude.
Aruna plays the muse for a nude painting. For a girl who is trapped in middle class morality, to reach a point where she not only poses naked in front of a man who is not her husband but also doesn’t care what the world will think when the painting becomes public, it is a tough journey towards self-discovery.
Shields plays an agony aunt columnist who discovers her husband is cheating on her. The scene where she poses nude to be painted on canvas by costar Prashant Narayanan reminds of the scene where Leonardo DiCaprio painted a nude Kate Winslet on the canvas in Titanic .
