Sunny Leone Speaks About 2020, As She Looks Ahead Brightly.



2020 was arguably the worst year of our lives. How do you look back on the year?

I think looking back at  the year…I think people  of my generation will never forget  this year. People  were struggling financially and emotionally throughout this year. They still are.  We don’t know what  lies ahead. Emotions  were heightened as  people were locked down  together. We don’t know  what  the world will be like once things  get  back to normal. 2020 was one of the  most difficult   years  for anyone  who has lived  through the year.

What  is  you takeaway from this traumatic year?

My takeaway? Ah…I am not really sure. I guess  it is the art  of survival. If we  could get through this  year then any  other future hurdles  traumas  and tragedies would be easy to  face. Emotionally  and financially  no  year  could be more challenging than this. The small  businesses are specially vulnerable  right now. Let’s  pray for their survival.

The OTT platform has changed the profile of the Hindi film audience. What is your take on cinema versus the digital platform?

I don’t think  cinema is ever going to be  the same again. The digital  platform has made sure  of that in 2020.We have  all restructured  and acclimatized  our brains and lives to watch  content  digitally , and we enjoy it that way. I’ve no idea  what will happen to the movie theatres. I  hope they get back  on their feet. But I don’t think movie theatres will  ever be the same.

What  films did you watch this year?

I consumed  a lot of digital shows. I didn’t watch too many films, actually.  I was  in  US most of  the time so I  watched  a lot   of  American shows.I am right  watching Netflix’s Queen  Of  The   South.

Irrfan, Rishi Kapoor, Sushant… your thoughts on their abrupt departure?

Yes  so  many valuable lives lost. I think there’s one  force that decides life and death. I believe  in God. I believe  he  chooses when we live and when we  die. When  we flounder and when we thrive. I personally  didn’t know these great actors. So I cannot feel for them them  way their friends and family can.But I hope they are  at peace wherever  they are.

There were some ugly run-ins on the social media which you handled with aplomb. What is your take on the toxicity on social media?  

Toxicity  on social medium is here to stay. During thislockdown, yes, I had some run-ins that were  not nice. But during this  lockdown a lot  of people from the entertainment industry had to face  a  lot more negativity that  I did. I  got  a lot  of  this  hatred  when I first came to Bollywood. With   time I pushed passed  it.  I don’t think toxicity on social media will ever  go away. I had never before seen such a large community  of haters before.

What  is your advice  to the trauma  of  the trolled?

My  advice is to push passed  the hatred. Don’t stop  doing what  you are  doing. Keep posting fun things about who  you are and  what  you love to do. Don’t read the comments. The haters  will soon  find another  target. So don’t let it get to you. Some of us  have opted  out of social  media. My  advice to  them is , come back, guys. I want to see  your pictures of the fun things that you do. Don’t let the .05  percent  of haters spoil the  fun.

Your plans  for  2021?

My plan is to work  my butt  off and make up for lost time. To make  up for  my lost opportunities.  I do have a job and I  like  it and I like making money from  it, just like you do.I hope to get back  to work fully  in 2021. I  also hope to spend as much time as possible  with my family. I have severe anxiety  bouts  about being separated  from them.
