Poonam Pandey and the controversy surrounding her

Twenty-year-old Poonam Pandey is an average Indian cricket fan, but what's unusual is the commitment she has made to the Indian cricket team. Things started to go wild since Poonam Pandey, a Mumbai based model, has announced that she will bare all if India wins the world cup.

Winning is one thing. Losing your clothes for a win, another.

Small-time model Poonam Pandey, who has pledged to strip if the Indian team wins the World Cup, has written to the cricket board seeking permission for the same.

The big question at this moment of time is if Model Poonam Pandey will go nude if India wins World Cup final. India is not just waiting for our team to win the match against Sri Lanka but also to see if model Poonam Pandey will be able to accomplish what she had vowed.

She says in her letter to BCCI: "It is therefore my humble request to allow me to perform in the privacy of the Indian cricket team's dressing room or any other place of your choosing. (you may also choose a foreign land, so that the laws of india -if a hindrance, do not apply) This shall be a private therapeutic performance -with a psychologist's presence and hence cannot be an offence under any law if the team members have no objection and the BCCI gives the goahead."

The model is keen, but, is ensuring that she doesn't get into any legal tangle. So, she has mentioned in her letter: "Only appearing in the nude in public is an offense but in private with consenting adults for a therapeutic purpose is no offense."

Poonam Pandey has hit the headlines by offering the reward to her country's players if they triumph over the Sri Lankans in Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. Reacting to her proposal, Animal rights activists have asked the model to strip for the sake of animals instead of vowing to bare it all if India wins the World Cup.

"It's amazing how notoriety can make a nobody famous overnight. Someone called Poonam Pandey is willing to bare all if the Indian cricket team wins & everyone is excited???? Would have been more exciting if a famous Bollywood star had said that. Who wants to see Poonam Pandey strip? Def not me," Farah Ali Khan, daughter of veteran actor Sanjay Khan, posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Meanwhile, an FIR has been lodged against the Mumbai-based model Poonam. Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) women's wing has sought police action against the Kingfisher model.
