It seems like Sunny Leone knows how to handle criticism and haters. On lyricist Prasoon Joshi’s statement on her past as a porn star, the 34-year-old actress very smartly replied that she did not know who Joshi was.

“I don’t know who Prasoon Joshi is. I will google him and then I will comment,” she said at an event on Wednesday in Mumbai. At Rang De Basanti’s 10th anniversary celebrations, the 44-year-old lyricist had criticised the Mastizaade actress’ former adult star status, saying that he has no respect for the same and youth should not be inspired to follow her profession.

“I don’t respect Sunny Leone’s profession. I wouldn’t want our youth to get inspired by her profession. But because of that to make a person feel as an accused and disrespect her is not something that one should do. But this should not be taken to mean that if someone is a drug dealer by profession that should be seen as his personal work,” he said.

He continued, “I will not respect that profession. And I will say that you shouldn’t be doing this. But that doesn’t mean that when that comes before me will I disrespect him or her. I wouldn’t. My culture doesn’t allow me. But I will not praise her profession. If there is a profession which doesn’t play a constructive role in building a great society, we need to criticise it as well.”
