Actress Neha Dhupia once said either sex sells or Shahrukh Khan in Bollywood. It doesn't seem to be true for the current situation. Sex sells, but it is not the be-all and end-all for a commercial success. Now Vimala Raman is said to be doing a nude scene in her upcoming Bollywood movie Amrapali. It is said that in the classic version, Vyjayanthimala Bali had done some bold scenes and now Vimala Raman, who has been flooded with offers after the huge success of Aaptha Rakshaka, will have to do skin shows and some two or three nude scenes.
Ashutosh Gowariker's Amrapali is a remake of yesteryear flick with the same title. Vimala Raman will play a title role, which was played by Vyjayanthimala Bali. Late actor Sunil Dutt had played protagonist and now Salman Khan is said to have been approached to do the lead role.
The story is based on a courtesan of Vaishali, the capital of the Licchavism which was ruled by the king of the Magadha empire, Ajatashatru.
