Sunny Leone aka Karanjit Kaur Vohra is all set to set the screen ablaze with her biopic “Karanjit Kaur - The Untold Story of Sunny Leone,” which will trace her journey from an adult film star to being a household Bollywood name. The actress recently spoke out about her experience of reliving the important events of her life.

Leone teared up while talking about the scene in which she tells her parents about her career and her father breaks down. It was harder for her because since then, both her parents have passed away. “No person would be fine reacting to some really emotional and traumatic moments, that they have pushed away. Going through it once again was really not easy and it was quite a challenging time to pull it off,” she added. Leone was glad that her husband, Daniel Weber was on the set and handled her emotional outbreak.

When she was approached to make this web series, she was initially hesitant to make it. There were rumors of other actresses playing her role but eventually, she decided to play herself.

Leone credits the crew for beautifully adapting her life story for this movie. “Karanjit Kaur - The Untold Story” will release digitally and not as your typical Bollywood film, something Leone said gave them creative leeway and also makes the series easily accessible. In it, she will also finally reveal the reason behind her stage name.

Leone recently became a mother when she adopted a child with her husband Daniel Weber. They also just had twins via surrogacy. Although, she has said none of the children will appear in “Karanjit Kaur,” she hasn’t ruled out the possibility of it if the series came back in the future.

The 36-year-old Leone might have started out as a porn star but after her stint on the Indian TV reality show “Bigg Boss” in 2011, her perseverance and hard work have really paid off and transformed her career. She made her Bollywood debut with “Jism 2” and has since appeared in “Jackpot,” “Mastizaade,” and more among other films. In 2016, a Canadian documentary about her called “Mostly Sunny” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. Earlier this year, she launched her own makeup line called Starstruck.

However, Leone has always made it a point to be her real self and not worry about being judged. In a 2016 interview with reporter Bhupendra Chubey, she stood her ground as he fired some pretty sexist and rude questions at her, almost like an interrogation, to create controversies. Leone’s composed attitude and cool remarks proved she is as brave and confident as they come. We’re sure “Karanjit Kaur - The Untold Story of Sunny Leone” will only further this narrative.
