Bollywood actresses “paraded” on Orkut

By Flynn Remedios – Futuristic Media Network

The popular social networking site Orkut is in the news again. Last month we reported how high class call girls and out of work models and some “aspiring actresses” were using the Orkut Network to solicit customers and even help screen decoys from ‘real’ customers. (Read http://futuristicmedianetwork.blogspot.com/2007/08/call-girls-in-mumbai-using-identity.html and http://futuristicmedianetwork.blogspot.com/2007/08/call-girl-network-in-mumbai-using-orkut.html)

This time we found out that some unscrupulous elements are using Orkut to “sell” Bollywood actresses for “special projects”. While we obviously do not want to mention the actual links or profile ids, a simple search on Orkut will show what we mean. We found dummy profiles of Sameera Reddy, Rakhi Sawant, Celina Jaitley, Tanushree Dutta, Sherlyn Chopra and even Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee. While some dummy profiles were blatant in their alleged purpose, the others were subtly camouflaged as fan sites or communities.

Most visitors to these fan communities would not notice the subtle “dhanda” being carried online. A closer examination over a period of time would however show that some of these communities were being used to trade doctored porn clips of the actresses mentioned. Even their phone numbers were given out in some cases. We checked out a few phone numbers and about 50 per cent of them turned out to be correct.

A few small-time out-of-work models and actresses were also seen in a similar fashion and their “per night rates” (sic) were also mentioned on their profiles.
