Mumbai, May 8 (IANS) Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who was rumoured to have shot a nude scene for her upcoming Telugu film, denied it saying she would never do such a sequence in her life.

“Nude? I’d never do a nude scene in my entire life even if someone makes me to do it at gunpoint. I come from a very conservative background,” she said.

“No way. I’ve never posed in the nude, never will, no matter how right the zeroes on the cheque are. I’ve an in-built censor code.”

“If my parents were to ever see that I’ve crossed the line of morality they’d drag me back to Himachal. Yes, I’ve aesthetically shot pictures which reveal my physique. And why not? I’ve worked really hard on getting my body muscular and toned.”

Kangana, who has returned to Mumbai from a month-long shooting of the Telugu film, said: “Journalists started calling up my Telugu director Puri Jagannath in Hyderabad (with the rumour) while we were shooting. He, poor man, was so scandalised he almost had a heart attack. Puri is one of the most successful and respected filmmakers of Telugu cinema.”

Clarifying that there are no nude sequences in the film, she said: “Even the much-hyped ‘nude’ scene in Raaz 2 was a hoax. I wore a body suit in the bath tub. I don’t think taking off all of one’s clothes is a cool thing to do.”

The actress is in the city only for costume and makeup trials for Ekta Kapoor’s “Once Upon A Time In Mumbai”.

“I play the only glamour element in the otherwise-dark film. This would be my most glamorous role. My look has to go from the late 1960s to the 1970s.”

“The challenge in Ekta’s film is to look glamorous without any body exposure. I think it’s possible.”
