Sunny Leone is reportedly all set to play herself in her own autobiographical series. The web series, titled, Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story of Sunny Leone, narrates the actor’s life story from being a pornstar to a complete Bollywood sensation. We all want to know what led her to change her name from Karenjit to Sunny, which will finally be revealed in this web series. She will reportedly portray herself and give us a glimpse into her life. The actor was approached by the producers of the web series for the show, and the prospect to play herself seemed to instantly interest her.
Speaking about the biopic she said, “I was excited but realised that I wasn’t emotionally prepared when we started shooting. No one would be comfortable recreating some really emotional and traumatic moments, that they have pushed away. Going through them again was very challenging.” The 36-year-old actress got emotional when she was asked to share the most difficult moment from her shoot. With tears in her eyes, she said, “There was this scene where I tell my parents what I did for a living and I see my father breaking down. I couldn’t deal with the emotions and broke down myself. Thankfully my husband was on the set and he handled me.” The actress shared a picture of the cast and crew from the sets of the show on Instagram. Take a look at it below.
With no guardian in the Hindi film industry, Sunny has made it big only through sheer hardwork. Ask her if the web series will open doors to her life that she had shut long ago, Sunny said, “I don’t think I have ever done any worrying about people judging me. My production team has managed to revisit my life story in the most beautiful way.” Sunny Leone’s claim to fame in India was her appearance on the controversial and entertaining show, Bigg Boss, seven years ago. She then went on to host Splitsvilla and then worked in numerous films such as Ek Paheli Leela and Jackpot. One will be able to stream her biopic and watch it on Zee5.
