Riya Sen: ‘Bollywood Striptease’ speaks the truth

Indecent proposals are the norm in the Hindi film industry claims author Neeta Shah in her new book Bollywood Striptease and actor Riya Sen seconds this, saying she too has had such experiences

“This book has everything and I think what she has written is true. My journey has been very different because I am not so ambitious. But yes, I have been offered, I have gone through a lot of experiences, directly and indirectly,” the 31-year-old told reporters at the launch of the book. “It depends from individual to individual, it’s what you choose. I have made my own decisions and I am happy with them,” she added.

Riya, who herself got into trouble after allegedly being part of an MMS chain, says worrying about rumours is not her style. “I have read my own interviews where people have quoted me when I have not even spoken to that journalist. I don’t sit and cry or howl or say I am running away from India or world. I still get my work, my money, I still have the same lifestyle, my friends and same producers, directors call me. So it (rumours) doesn’t affect me,” said Riya, who was last seen in Benny and Babloo.

Daughter of yesteryear’s actor Moon Moon Sen, Riya’s journey in Bollywood began with Style in 2001. She has featured in films like Dil Vil Pyar Vyar, Jhankaar Beats and Shaadi No. 1 and is currently working in Krrish 2, in which she plays Vivek Oberoi‘s girlfriend.
