The art of morphing pics (merging two images as one) is becoming a steady trend in Bollywood with more and more high profile actresses falling victim to it. A lot of blame game ensues but those responsible for it are rarely brought to work.
Here are some actresses who have cried foul over morphed pictures of them which became public.
'Singham' girl, Kajal Agarwal was furious when she saw her topless pic on the cover of FHM magazine. Kajal said that she was wearing a black tube during the shoot and maintained that she would never do a topless shoot. Meanwhile, the magazine has come clean about the fact saying that the allegations are false and are not to be blamed for Kajal's sudden change of mind.
Sonakshi Sinha also saw red when she came across photos of her appearing on Maxim magazine in a bikini. When Sonakshi's bikini pics started circulating online, she was quick to deny that it was her in the photos. In reality, the actress was wearing a black dress on the cover of the magazine and the morphing was probably the result of some mischievous netizens.
Close on the heels of Sonakshi Sinha's morphed photos came Vidya Balan's turn. She too appeared wearing a bikini for the same magazine, which, of course, was morphed. In fact, Vidya even denied that she had shot for the mag, forget getting into a bikini.
In 2009, Celina Jaitley filed a legal case against a gadgets blog and a Bollywood portal for uploading obscene pictures of hers. The morphed pic showed Celina wearing a white tee and a black panty bearing the words "slide to unlock" in a derogatory fashion.
Anushka Sharma also joined the league of morphed actresses when pics of her in a bikini started doing the rounds. Ever since the news of Anushka wearing a bikini in her film 'Ladies v/s Ricky Bahl' came around, over-enthusiastic netizens started morphing pictures of her and circulating it all over the internet.
