the star was shooting for the cover of The Man magazine with a model outside the lobby of a three-star hotel last week, when a group of regular male customers started shouting Jai Maharashtra slogans and threatened action from Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS). They even tried to confiscate the camera, resulting in the shoot having to be abruptly called off.
Neetu had termed them as "some frustrated men, who just wanted my attention. When they didn't get it, they started making a scene about the shoot and threatening us."
Now, to the dismay of the actress, there's been talk about some activists planning to burn copies of the magazine when its issue carrying Neetu's images releases next week, alleging that the images do have lesbian connotations.
However, Neetu denies the charge.
"It's about two girls getting intimate to arouse male interest. And that doesn't mean it's about lesbianism," she added.
