Just as Bipasha Basu announced that she will soon join the microblogging site Twitter, videos of her posing topless in an old advertisement surfaced on the video posting site YouTube.
The dusky actress featured in the New York Lotto commercial, along with Vivek Oberoi, in the initial days of her modelling career. Since the ad was very bold, the question remained whether the actors had indeed shot for it.
In a statement, Bipasha's manager confirmed, "Bipasha had done this ad in 1999 when she was modelling for Ford Modelling Agency in New York. It was done as an international assignment and was meant for the international market. I don't know why such an old ad has surfaced now."
The ad was reportedly shot by Ken Nahoum in India. Like Sherlyn Chopra's nude posture, Bipasha's ad is also likely to create ripples on the net.
