The bombshell played it close to her chest. We didn't find out about the Playboy cover until she was posing for it. Clever girl!
What if there had been a brouhaha even before she could be the first Indian to grace the sizzling magazine? What if someone beat her to it?
Well, she's left the competition far behind now! It's official and the proof is in the pictures.
After tweeting snaps of her and Hugh Hefner at the Playboy Mansion, Sherlyn's back in India. And one of the first things she did was to address the press. True to her 'oomph' tag, she kept things smokin' hot in a green sari and a backless, plunging blouse.
What she said seems to be just a repetition of what we already know - the Playboy cover will be released in November 2012, the theme of the photoshoot was holi. So get ready to see Sherlyn's birthday suit in an array of colours.
We've also gleaned from her Twitter feed that she's on tweeting terms with Hef's girl, Crystal Harris.
So yes, the press meet was just another photo-op for the glamour queen.
