India's First Playboy Bunny Club Will Open Soon With 'Modest' Bunnies


Sherlyn ChopraIndia's state of Goa is about to get its very own Playboy Bunny Club next month, according to a report by the AFP.

This is despite a nationwide ban on Playboy magazine, which has been in effect since the brand's launch in the 1950s due to India's strict obscenity laws banning all material deemed "lascivious or appealing to prurient interests."

The club will serve drinks and feature the brand's iconic "Bunnies," though with certain clothing restrictions to keep the uniform "modest."

Instead of the infamous fluffy tail, bunny ears, and corset, a more demure outfit with a stress on no nudity will premiere at the 22,000-square-foot club.

"Bunnies are an integral part of Playboy clubs," Sanjay Gupta, chief executive of PB Lifestyle with the rights to the well-known American brand, told AFP. "For the obvious reasons of Indian morality and sensibilities, we can't follow the traditional costumes that Playboy bunnies are associated with."

Recently, Playboy also caused controversy in India as Sherlyn Chopra, a B-list Bollywood starlet, posed for the mag. The 25-year-old Indian model has gained criticism for her choice to model for the magazine, but tells BBC News, "Never have I done a shoot with such confidence and joy." Her issue will be out this month.
