Sunny Leone has been barred from performing in Bengaluru by the local administration. The reason given is—and I quote the Karnataka Home Minister–“I have instructed not to allow such events. Don’t bring her here. People are opposed to the event.”
While Sunny and her husband Daniel Weber refrained from commenting on record, a friend of the couple said they were “heartbroken” by the snub.
“Sunny has been a part of Bollywood and the Indian film industry for five years now.Whatever her antecedents she is now a full-timeBollywood actress. To stop her from performing on stage in any part of the country is unfair.What has she done to deserve this snub?” asks the friend.
Apparently Sunny is now planning to take her New Year’s eve performance to a “different and more friendly environment.”
In the meanwhile the announcement of Sunny Leone playing the legendary actress Meena Kumari has proved to be highly premature.
“The director Karan Razdan met Sunny and offered her the role. Sunny was happy about the offer. Of course she has heard of MeenaKumari. But she needs to know more about the great actress before saying yes to the role.Sunny wonders why the director spoke before the matter before it was discussed properly, let alone settled,” says a source close to Leone.
