Last year, Sunny Leone became a household name almost instantly when she entered the reality show, Bigg Boss. Soon enough, producer-director Pooja Bhatt signed the adult film actor for Jism 2. And as Sunny wraps up the sequel to the 2003 film, now Ekta Kapoor has roped her in for the sequel to the 2011 horror-thriller, Ragini MMS 2.
Excited about her Bollywood debut, Sunny says, “Balaji Motion Pictures isn’t just any production company. What attracted me to Ragini MMS 2 was the entire package — the script, Ekta and her production house. The film’s story is very intriguing. It’s not everyday that one comes across such movies in Bollywood.”
The 31-year-old, who is currently shooting for Jism 2 in Sri Lanka adds, “A lot of people are surprised that despite being a girl, I have always been fond of horror thrillers!”
So with things looking up in India, does she plan to call it quits in the porn industry? “In all probability, I will be involved with the adult industry in some capacity or the other, even if I’m not in front of the camera. I work in a few porn films, though for some reason, people feel that I am actively involved. I hardly do one (adult) film a year. In fact I consider myself a very conservative girl in the (porn) industry,” says Sunny, whose Sunlust Pictures will release her X-rated directorial film, Rachel Roxxx Your World, later this week.

However, the actor admits she hasn’t committed to doing any new (adult) film in the near future. “I don’t know what’s going to happen. But I don’t see a particular reason to get away from the (porn) industry immediately. If not for the adult film industry, I wouldn’t have been here. I hope people appreciate me in Jism 2 and Ragini MMS 2, and keep me busy with Bollywood,” she says.
Would she be willing to change her base to Mumbai if her films do well? “I’d be crazy if I didn’t! But you can’t predict the future. Let’s see how everything goes,” she says, adding, “It’s an exciting phase for me since I have never been part of such entertainment. It’s a huge learning experience.”
