A couple of weeks ago I predicted that the incursion of Maxim into previously lad-mag-free India might generate some interesting results. For once, I was right.
For it appears that at least one Indian hottie has rejected Maxim’s mandate that she embrace the male gaze while wearing her underwear. After they airbrushed film star Khushboo’s head onto some hot skivvy-clad bod she became skeptical that Maxim is, as it claims, “in the business of respecting and celebrating rather than denigrating women.” She told’em to go to hell and filed suit. They apparently forgot to get her permission to “treat [her] as a commodity.”
And so it begins.
