Sunny Leone doesn't worry bout her porn star image
Though she is barely a film old in Bollywood, but Indo-Canadian porn star turned actor Sunny Leone (left) has managed to garner a lot of eyeballs.
Sunny, who was last seen in filmmaker Pooja Bhatt’s erotic thriller Jism 2, is enjoying every bit of the fame she has earned in Bollywood. “I’m living my dream. A year back, I never thought that I would be doing Bollywood films, But here I am doing and loving every moment of it. I am completely enjoying the ride,” she says.
Interestingly, Sunny, who will be next seen in filmmaker Ekta Kapoor’s upcoming production Ragini MMS 2, says that she wants to be known as a serious actor eventually. “I agree that I am not a veteran actor. I am just taking baby steps in Bollywood. But the fact is that I’m ready to give my 100% to learn. I want to be offered roles that give me ample opportunity to prove myself. I am a no drama person and I want to work with people who are like that,” she says.
With item numbers becoming a norm in Hindi films, is Sunny open to doing item numbers? “Of course, Why not? Item numbers are important in Bollywood and they are fun to do,” she says.
As to if she wants to change her porn star image, she says, “I don’t really worry about it, as I can’t change people’s perception about me. But I am hopeful that it will change with time and I will be known as serious actor.”
