Former porn-star Sunny Leone has become a popular star ever since she made her debut in Bollywood. She has gained immense popularity and has become a household name since then. Although, Sunny has quit the adult film industry completely now, her dark past continues to haunt her. She has received flak time and again for being a porn star in her early life. Sunny has boldly embraced all the reactions she received and continues to focus on her work.
Sunny Leone, who was originally named as Karenjit Kaur Vohra reportedly, faces harsh criticism from the people of her hometown. Born in a small town of Sarnia in Canada, the actress doesn’t receive a good welcome in her hometown reports Hindustan Times.com. And that’s because Sunny, chose to become a pornstar when she was sent to a Khalsa summer camp by her parents. Now Dilip Mehta, an eminent Toronto-based filmmaker, plans to make a documentary based on Sunny Leone’s life. Dilip titled the documentary as Mostly Sunny and premiered it at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
The filmmaker reveals all the struggle he had to go through while filming Sunny’s life journey. The Hindustan Times report claims that Dilip was not granted permission to shoot at the Gurudwara where the Ek Paheli Thi Leela actress used to worship during her young days. The Gurudwara’s management called the cops as an attempt to hinder their film shoot. Moreover, friends and relatives of Sunny are not interested in talking about her. Reason? Her decision to make a career in the adult film industry despite having several other career options.
The filmmaker tried to capture every single phase of Sunny Leone’s life, including the places where Sunny lived with her husband in Mumbai and Los Angeles. The documentary was wrapped up last year and the last schedule was shot in her hometown Sarnia. Dilip thinks that Sunny is a ‘smart’ person and has managed her career and finances very well. He is impressed with her unapologetic attitude towards the choices she’s made in life. Mostly Sunny is likely to be released in India this winter!
The film received mixed response at TIFF and a Toronto-based Victor Stiff says, “Despite her off the charts affability, her (Sunny’s) story is rarely compelling. The film does get interesting when Mehta takes his crew halfway around the world to India… (where) Leone is more beloved by strangers than her own family back in Sarnia.” In his review he says, “Leone has a magnetic presence, the camera loves her. However, those traits don’t necessarily equate to a profound documentary subject. Even with the film’s colourful subject matter, Mostly Sunny comes off as drab.”
