Currently on a promotional tour for her next film Mastizaade, Sunny Leone has called herself a realist business person.

The actor made inroads into Indian showbiz with the season of reality show Bigg Boss and then landed a role in Bollywood with Jism 2.

In an interview to CNN IBN anchor Bhupendra Chaubey posed some questions, which Sunny tackled quite sportingly. 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? You would like to work with Aamir Khan, but would Aamir Khan like to work with you? A member of parliament, in his speeches, has held you responsible for corrupting Indian morality. How do you deal with that?

Sunny Leone’s Mastizaade will release on January 29.

Admitting that a mainstream star like Aamir may not be interested in working with her, Leone said, “It doesn’t affect me if a particular person doesn’t want to work with me. I am anyways working everyday. More than an entertainer, I am a business person and I would like to concentrate on that.”

She was even asked: If Sunny Leone is becoming brand ambassador of New India, is that a dangerous trend to have? Another question posed to her was whether Sunny 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,” the interviewer asked.

However, Sunny answered the queries with wit and poise, thereby garnering applause from known names of the film fraternity. She even shared a video thanking her fans and Bollywood industry for their support and love.
