Sunny Leone is again in the news for all the wrong reasons. Recently, she had a tiff with Bollywood actor Celina Jaitley. Now, she has reponded to the controversy. Leone finds it "unprofessional" on the part of item girl Rakhi Sawant and Celina Jaitley to make "baseless" comments about her in public. The Indo-Canadian adult film star, who has carved a niche in Bollywood over the years, however, doesn't care.

    At the launch of MTV Splitsvilla 8, Sunny was asked about her reaction to the duo's remarks.

    She said: "They are useless and baseless comments. It is unprofessional. You would never see an actor or actress speaking bad in the way they have. So it's their problem, I don't care about it. I am here to do good work and I will focus on doing that."

    Not too long ago, Rakhi reportedly lashed out at Sunny for forcing other artists to wear skimpy clothes and even asked the latter to leave India.

    Meanwhile, Celina accused Sunny and her husband of leaving her house, which they had taken on rent, in shambles.

'IPL's not as eased out as it seems'

In this season of Test cricket, the mere mention of the Indian Premier League elicits admonishments from the purists. It doesn't help your argument a bit when you see actor-choreographer Farah Khan plugging for the league in a series of TV advertisements that attempt to blur the difference between sport and entertainment, gentlemen and "mental-men".

It may be considered fast-food fare compared to the full-course meal that is the five-day game, but for those who've sampled both, the taste of victory remains the same, and like the slogan of a particularly sinful chocolate, you have to earn it. Thus feels the man who has whetted his seemingly insatiable appetite for Test runs , while also enjoying the fruits of IPL labour - Gautam Gambhir.

As captain of the defending IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders, Gambhir rebuilt a habitually underperforming  franchise and made a price-tag of $2.4 million (Rs 12cr) seem like a bargain. Who better, then, to shatter the myth of the IPL being a Mickey Mouse league in sport more accustomed to the super-hero feats in the longer format.

"Beyond the glitz and the glamour, lies a distinct cricket challenge. When you consider in all factors - the number of matches, the exhaustive traveling, the very little recovery period - you realise that it's not as eased out as some make it out to seem," said the 31-year-old southpaw, who visited HT House on International Women's Day to take part in a panel discussion on women achievers and the challenges they face.
