Indo-Canadian adult film star-turned-actor Sunny Leone is known for her bold and sensuous image, but she hopes that the audience will appreciate her acting talent more in her forthcoming film Jackpot.
"Jackpot is a very story-driven movie. It's a fast-paced film and it's not just about being sexy for me in this movie. Hopefully, they (audience) get to see a different side where my acting is appreciated a little more," the 33-year-old said.
"I hope that happens. I hope when people watch Jackpot, they see that I did work really hard. I spent days and nights making sure that I learn these lines frontwards and backwards, or at least try," Sunny added.
In the Kaizad Gustad film, Sunny will be seen opposite actor-producer Sachiin Joshi. The film, releasing Friday, also stars Naseeruddin Shah.
Sunny made her Bollywood debut with 2012 film Jism 2.
