Sunny Leone is all set to release her biopic Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone, through a web series despite Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) having issues with “Kaur” in the title. It has been reported that the Committee has objected on using “Kaur” in the title because that might hurt Sikh sentiments. SGPC’s additional secretary and spokesperson Diljit Singh Bedi, had told Times Of India that Sunny has never followed the teachings of the Sikh Gurus and that she had no right to use the title “Kaur.” Sunny does not seem to be bothered and tweeted on Saturday, “The next chapter of my life starts in a few days! Are you ready to take the journey with me through my eyes? #guiltyofdoingitmyway @ZEE5India @namahpictures @freshlimefilms @adidatt #karenjitkaur.”
Talking about her series, the actor told IANS, “Initially, my answer was that I wasn’t sure. But once I started hearing about what the director and the production house wanted, I started having an interest in it.” The actor even mentioned what the audiences should expect from the show and said, “The unexpected. This is a part of my life story and not necessarily the journey you are expecting to see,” she added. Talking about being targetted as someone who instigates rape and how she deals with all the controversies surrounding her, Sunny told timesnownews.com, “I don’t see myself as a victim, a soft target maybe. I believe people should have a right to say what they want to. They all had their own journey that they take. Most of the time I brush it off. It’s nonsense. The rational people know it’s nonsense. It gets on my nerves sometimes, does it hurt me, no.”
Apart from Sunny, the series also features Raj Arjun, Rysa Saujani, Karamvir Lamba, Bijay Jasjit Anand, Grusha Kapoor, Vansh Pradhan and Marc Buckner. The web series will trace the journey of Sunny Leone, who was born as Karenjit Kaur Vohra to Indian immigrants in Canada. It will show her struggles as a teenager and how the financial crisis in the family led her to become an adult movie star.
