Model Sofia Hayat, who was also a participant in "Bigg Boss 7," has become a Buddhist nun. The actress-singer shocked everyone with her recent pictures on social media: She has posted pictures of her as a nun and named herself Gaia Mother Sofia.
Sofia was best known for going completely nude when her then boyfriend Rohit Sharma played a mind blowing innings in a cricket match. The pictures became viral, and she later made headlines due to the controversial show "Bigg Boss."
Sofia's transformation from a sexy and hot babe to a Buddhist nun came as a surprise to fans. She even talked about her transformation on social media, writing: "We are beautiful without makeup..hair colour..fashion..we are perfect as we are. I'm sorry I gave you the impression otherwise. I am changed. I love you all. Gaia Sofia Mother. [sic]"
Sofia, a British national of South Asian descent, has worked in both British and Indian projects. She had raised the temperature with her sexy looks and bikini photoshoots in her modelling days.
With her perfect figure, Sofia was called the new "curvy icon" by Vogue Italia in their July 2012 edition, while she bagged the 81st position in the world list of FHM sexiest women in September 2013. But, now it seems the actress-model has shed her sexy avatar and taken the path of Buddhism.

Namaste. Gaia Mother Sofia
It's all about you. You create this world. In knowing you are a creator. .you can then harness your own mind to what you want in life. See..we have been tricked into thinking we are not so great and powerful..but you are. Children of divine source of me. Your time is finally here. Just release all negative programming. Your electric body has been programmed for so long you think you are less. .but stop "thinking", feel..from your heart. For it is the heart that can release everything and bring you above the programming of the matrix. You all know the programming.
