Yes, Her name is Kushboo and she's sued Maxim for printing some semi-naked pic of hers.
All the Maxim mags in chennai were confiscated immediately from all the vendors.

Wow someone actually likes Maxim. I took out a free trial subscription in the UK to get a Calvin Klein gift set (sucker for freebies). It was the worst magazine I have ever seen. There are plenty of better "lads mags" in the UK. After my free trial was up I cancelled straight away.

agree with karthik,read both the first and second issues.good enough value for 60 bucks,but not for 100 bucks(from next month,it seems) unless they increase the content.
