Sunny Leone performance at engineering college shot down by Kerala University

Jun 13, 2024 04:32 PM IST

The Sunny Leone performance was scheduled at the University College of Engineering in Kerala for early July, according to reports.

The vice-chancellor of Kerala University has denied permission for a dance performance by Bollywood actor Sunny Leone, according to reports in Malayalam media.

Sunny Leone has acted in films such as "Jism 2", "Jackpot", "Shootout at Wadala" and "Ragini MMS 2".

The show was to happen on the University College of Engineering campus in Kerala capital Thiruvananthapuram on July 5.

Kerala University vice chancellor Dr Mohanan Kunnummal instructed the registrar to ensure that the college university does not include Leone's show in the programme list, Manorama and Mathrubhumi reported.

Dr Kunnummal said permission was denied as there was an existing directive from the Higher Education Department banning the performance of "outside bands" on the campuses, news agency PTI reported.

“After the recent stampede incident at CUSAT campus, there is an existing direction banning performances by outside band on the campuses,” he told PTI.

The vice-chancellor said he learned about the Sunny Leone event after seeing a poster for it.

"There is also a regulation that money should not be collected from outside for functions inside the campuses. On this particular campus, there are only around 300 students, and for a Bollywood celebrity, an exorbitant amount needs to be collected," he said.

In November last year, four students died and over 60 were injured in a stampede-like situation at a concert in Cochin University of Science and Technology (Cusat) in Kerala's Ernakulam district.

Sunny Leone, 43, will be a part of an upcoming Malayalam film. In April, she took to Instagram to share a glimpse of the muhurat ceremony on the sets- as she began shooting for the film.

“I'm so excited to be part of this amazing Malayalam film that I ended up burning my hands. Director: @pampally,” she captioned the post.

She has acted in Bollywood films such as “Jism 2”, “Jackpot”, “Shootout at Wadala”, and “Ragini MMS 2”.

Last year, she was seen in “Kennedy”, directed by Anurag Kashyap. She was featured alongside Rahul Bhat and Abhilash Thapliyal.
