Sunny Leone To Try a Bihari Dialect? We Forgive Hrithik


 Last night  I had a nightmare starring  Sunny Leone. I dreamt Sunny Leone was more popular than Sunny Deol ,  that she  was joining  politics  and that  she was  doing a Bihar/UP dialect in a forthcoming film.

 While the  first two terrifying  trepidations  fortunately turned out to be  untrue, the third, I am afraid, is not  a horrible dream that will  go away when we open our eyes.

Sunny Leone is  indeed  doing a cowbelt accent for a forthcoming  film. I have to  hand it to the  makers  of  this film for their imagination and  optimism. Please  note: Sunnyji  can’t yet speak her Hindi dialogues. After  five years in  Bollywood her  Hindi is as good as Katrina Kaif’s. This, I agree is not  saying much.  It’s like saying Rahul Gandhi’s poll prospects in the  next  elections  are as  bright as Donald Trump’s.

I don’t understand how  Ms Leone can be  a Bollywood actress when she can’t speak Hindi.  Achcha chalo,  koi baat nahin. Language  , said a great  director, is the least important component  of  the cinematic experience. What about   the success ratio? Which  of Ms Leone’s films inBollywood  have been successes?  Ek Paheli Leela, Mastizaade, Kuch Kuch  Locha Hai, One  Night Stand,  Beimaaan Love…all miserable  flops.

All her hit films came  before her Bollywood career started. And I really can’t mention those films here.  Ms Leone  or her vigilant  husband may take deep offence  to my recalling of her past.

For reasons  best known to her,  Ms Leone has  been in denial for some years now about her past association with the pornography industry. So much so that when  Dilip Mehta(Deepa’s  brother) made a  wonderfully lucid documentary  entitled Mostly Sunny about Ms Leone’s  tryst with titillation and  excursion into erotica, the husband and  wife   pair  swiftly  disowned the documentary.

The  truth  is  not  always  palatable to those who make  it  a point to climb out of  karma’s allotted space and create a new life for herself as   , giggle,  reigning  queen of  Bollywood and  mother to three beautiful children. It’s an  enviable  image to have. But one that reeks of hypocrisy. Because  a large  part  of  her  23  million  followers  on Twitter are those who were converted  into fans via her  adult content.

To believe she  is a Bollywood star  with  a  following  that accompanies Bollywood actresses is  a myth  , and a delusion  created by her astonishing  publicity machinery.

So what makes Sunny Leone  a  bigger name than Sunny Deol? The power to hardsell an image  of a woman who is ,at the core, is  the average net surfer’s fantasy  as  a  newly-converted family woman and  Bollywood  star. And now  an actress who can do a North Indian dialect  in a  film that nobody will watch for her acting skills.

  Come back, Hrithik.We  forgive  you your ‘Bihari’ accent in Super 30.
