'I consider it my birth right to live in India'

Sunny Leone was daring enough to experiment with a lot of things when she was barely 11 years old. She did her first porn film when she was still in her teens. No wonder the actress is a hot property, not just in her home town in Canada but also in Bollywood. “I didn’t start off wanting to do adult movies but when I was first offered something different, I put my faith in the project and it clicked for me. When I first told my parents what I wanted to do, all that they said to me was to work on things that I am convinced about and not do things just for the heck of it,” says Sunny Leone, who was in the City recently.

Sunny, who was born to Sikh Punjabi parents, confesses that she always wanted to live in India. “I consider it my birth right to live in India but I never thought I would be able to relocate to Mumbai and live here so soon. The people and the lifestyle are very different but I’ve settled in the culture pretty fast,” she states.

 Sunny would never miss a chance to watch a Bollywood movie and she shares that she always wanted to work in the film industry. She says that the colour and loudness of Bollywood movies excite her. Her debut, Jism 2, changed a lot of things for her. She dubs her role in her next project ‘Ragini MMS 2’ as ‘scary’. “It’s a very scary film. I’ve always held a fascination for the horror genre and now after I’ve worked in one, I realised that more than scary, it’s fun. The project offered a bit of everything,” she notes. In ‘Jackpot’, Sunny will be seen as a con woman. “I play a con woman, who cons people at casinos for money. This role gave me a lot of satisfaction because I play a negative character. I can never imagine conning someone in real life,” she adds.    

She is really looking forward to another project ‘Tina and Lolo’, which is a woman-centric film. “It’s an action-packed adventure film. One will get to see a lot of bullets flying and women wielding guns. It has loads of thrilling moments,” she explains.    

Sunny states that she loves her job and is convinced about every script that she signs. “If people don't like what I do, then they needn’t buy tickets to the movie,” she concludes.
