Mumbai, Sep 7, 2011: Kajal Agarwal’s topless pic on FHM India cover has turned into a major controversy with Kajal alleging that they have morphed her picture. But FHM firmly condemned those allegations and posted some high quality pictures of Kajal on their website.
While Kajal Agarwal has said she never posed topless for a men’s magazine, the editor of the magazine has come out with a statement, saying that the picture was original.
’I shot for the magazine, but not this way. The picture was distorted. They have photo-shopped the picture and changed it. I had never posed topless for the shoot. Moreover, I did not give them an interview’, she said.
Meanwhile, in a statement, FHM India editor Kabeer Sharma said: ’FHM has never in the past or will in the future morph pictures of any celebrities. We shot with madam Aggarwal on the 18th of August in Mumbai and have a full team composed of assistants, stylists, makeup artists, photographers and others to back it up. We’d be happy to release the full untouched raw pictures on the internet soon to back it up also’.
’Furthermore we also have a model release form signed by Kajal herself. To say that the picture is morphed is an insult to both the brand FHM as well as the collective intelligence of you (her fans) as well as anyone with half an idea about how Photoshop works. We don’t know what exactly made Kajal change her mind after the shoot… but if she did, the magazine really cannot be blamed,’ he added.
