Bollywood is more conservative when it comes to showing skin in movies. Actress Neetu Chandra did a bathing scene in director Jagmohan Mundhra’s 2010 movie Apartment, and had to reassure everyone that she was not really nude, and that it was a cinematic deception.
"There is no vulgarity or cheapness in the shower scene… The shot gives an illusion that I am not wearing anything but it is a trick of the camera. It’s an illusion that the filmmakers have created because I wasn’t comfortable shooting otherwise," said the actress.
An earlier photo shoot with another woman on a public beach also created controversy when they were accused of "promoting lesbianism."
