During a promotional TV interview, Sunny was asked that while she would like to work with Aamir Khan, but would Aamir Khan like to work with her. Sunny faced it sportingly, and it is this spirit that has impressed Aamir.
Sunny acknowledged Aamir’s support with a re-tweet, which read: “I think my heart just dropped seeing this! Thank you so much for the support. It means the world and beyond to me.”
Wow you just made my whole year saying that! I was just happy you wrote me back :) respect you dearly! :) :) :) https://t.co/j4lxuVuar8— Sunny Leone (@SunnyLeone) January 20, 2016

It would be fun if Aamir Khan takes this up as a challenge and signs a film with Sunny Leone.— Shubha Shetty (@shubhaS) January 19, 2016
Some of the questions asked were: There are lots of married women who look at Sunny Leone as a threat to their husbands, do you not care about all this?
A member of parliament, in his speeches, has held you responsible for corrupting Indian morality. How do you deal with that?
She was even asked: If Sunny Leone is becoming brand ambassador of New India, is that a dangerous trend to have?
The anchor also asked Sunny if she is the reason behind the growing porn watchers in India. “Since you have come to Indian cinema, the number of people watching porn has increased proportionately to the extent that we are now the world’s largest consumer of porn. Can you respond to that,” he asked.
