In another hoax threat of nudity to get everyone exciting, aspiring actress and model Poonam Pandey will get naked if her team India wins the ICC Cricket World Cup. This has been promised before by Larissa Riquelme who promised the same thing if Spain would win the FIFA World Cup. Other promises of nudity included Diego Maradona and Enrique Iglasias (although he did actually come to the party). I also have little doubt that Diego Maradona would have if Argentina won the FIFA World Cup.
India have a very real chance of winning this which is exciting for the Indian players especially, but this is will probably be some kind of publicity stunt to boost her aspiring career and she will pike like Larissa Riquelme.
If India needed an extra excuse to push hard for World Cup victory then it surely comes from model Poonam Pandey.
Taking a leaf from voluptuous Larissa Riquelme at the football World Cup, Pandey says she'll go naked if India take the trophy.
"I'm a cricket fanatic and I'm a die-hard supporter of my nation. India needs a lot of support and this is my way of supporting the team," Pandey said.
The 20-year-old was asked by the Times of India whether she intended keeping her promise and she said she does.
"But where?" she said.
"I can bare all wherever they want. It can be inside the players' dressing room or even in the stadium."
She intends asking permission from Indian cricket's governing body, the BCCI, before doing so though as she doesn't want to fall foul of any laws.
But a fellow model, Shweta Sharma says there can be no excuses:
"Poonam has to bare all even if BCCI says no. Please don't give an excuse saying I will go nude only if they agree," she wrote.
