Where most of Bollywood’s leading actors, directors and producers have declined to work with Sunny Leone for her controversial past as an adult actress; the Mastizaade actress stated that she was not ashamed of her past as an adult actress.
“I am who I am. My past has made me what I am today,” the star explained. “I’m not ashamed of it. I am here in India to start a new life, do good things and be part of a world that I never thought could happen to me. That way I am living a dream.”
“I don’t know about shedding any image because I can’t do that. It’s not in my hands,” Leone explains. “All I can do is be myself, work hard and hopefully make better movies and become a better actress. So when people see me playing different roles onscreen, their perception will automatically change.”
The sultry actress had made her debut in 2012 with Jism 2 opposite Randee Hooda. Though Sunny Leone has starred in a couple of films ever since, several Bollywood A-list actors are still reluctant to work with her in movies due to her controversial past.
