Bollywood actresses are getting bolder everyday - in choice of roles, dressing up or dressing down.
They know that they belong to the sexy breed and they have no qualms showing it off to the world.
They might not go full monty, but are fine with giving their fans a little peek-a-boo by going topless for films and shoots.
Here's a look at the Bollywood hotties who have dared to go topless for the shutterbug...
Sarah Jane Dias: Last seen in sex comedy 'Kya Super Kool Hain Hum' former beauty queen turned actress, Sarah Jane Dais stripped off for the cover of FHM magazine.
30-year-old actress recently made her Tollywood debut with Pawan Kalyan starrer Panjaa, which tanked at the box-office, leaving Sarah's acting career in dumps.
When your Bollywood dreams are dwindling one after the other a bold and sexy shoot like this can be the much-needed boost.
Now, let's see if the topless shoot can catapult Sarah's sinking ship.
Sunny Leone: It must have been a child's play for adult star Sunny Leone but serious titillation for her fans when she decided to play a perfect Indian seductress on the cover of FHM magazine.
Rather than going all open, Sunny preferred to show it through a sheer saree.
She looked every bit of a desi diva dressed in a sheer green saree.
Vidya Balan: She is one actress who knows how to handle her curves well.
It was for the calendar shoot for celebrity photographer Daboo Ratnani that Vidya went down and dirty to pose topless.
She was a sheer delight to watch!
Kajal Agarwal: Yes, the southern beauty who made her Bollywood debut in Singham opposite had changing her girl next door image when she dared to bare for a glossy.
Industry down south must have taken some time to recover from the shock she gave by posing in nothing but polka dot stockings and her hands hiding her modesty.
Quite a transformation from the salwar-kameez to the topless look.
Deepika Padukone: Rather than blurting her nudity, Deepika chose a classy shot for her topless act.
Minissha Lamba: All good things come in small packages.
A look at Minissha Lamba dressed down to nothing and you'll know what you are talking about.
The petite beauty looks a million bucks as she poses topless on the cover of Maxim magazine with a black satin bed sheet adding in the fun factor.
It was for the sex & Relationship special issue that Minissha did this bolder than ever shoot.
Kareena Kapoor Khan: She was still Kareena Kapoor till she posed topless for 'Kurbaan'.
But that she was seeing Chote Nawab, who was also her co-star in the film was enough a reservation for Bebo to keep that topless stunt to a bare back.
Besides this, Kareena has never posed topless.
Ameesha Patel: When nothing can save your career a bold and topless shoot can.
However, when your name is Ameesha Patel, even a free show of your assets can't give a boost to your career.
However, playing with the pillow, Ameesha does look hot in this shoot.
Nargis Fakhri: Kissing the top good bye is nothing new for rockstar babe, Nargis Fakhri.
She has done that quite a number of times before her Rockstar days.
This was a part of her shoot for the coveted Kingfisher Calendar.
Veena Malik: When it is Veena Malik there's always more than what meets the eye.
When she went full monty for the FHM magazine in sync with the release of her film she cried foul and blamed it to Photoshop.
The Pakistani beauty said that her picture was fake and not a part of the original shoot that she did with the magazine wearing a fur jacket and hot pants.
She also sent a legal notice to the glossy's editor asking him to pay damages worth Rs.10 crore.
Mallika Sherawat: Haryanvi beauty, Mallika who is busy these days in searching out her dream man via a reality TV show looked like a diva straight from the era of Kamasutra, when she posed topless for FHM magazine.
It was a statement neckpiece that safeguarded her assets.
Bipasha Basu: While women yearned for a body like her, men skipped a beat when Bipasha Basu posed topless on the cover of maxim magazine.
Kashmira Shah: When her fans had almost forgotten her, Kashmira Shah bounced back and how? It was not a picture or two but a complete calendar that Kashmera launched, one of which showed her topless.
Mandira Bedi: After glamourising the gentlemen's game with her noodle straps, Mandira surprised all with her topless shoot.
