Kapil Sharma avoids Sunny Leone
Kapil Sharma is a noted standup comedian and runs a popular show ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’. He has gracefully hosted a number of Bollywood celebrities on his show ahead of their release of movies. Bollywood’s top actors and actresses have visited his show and promoted their movies. His show promotes light hearted comedy.
Recently Sunny Leone, a porn star turned actress, promoted her film ‘Jackpot’ on various television shows but she didn’t appear on Kapil’s ‘Comedy Nights With Kapil’. It was reported that Kapil was uncomfortable with her image of an ‘adult star’ and so he avoided calling her on his show.
Well, can we say that Kapil is narrow-minded as the adult star turned actress has been received with open hands in the industry? She was cast in ‘Jism 2’ for the first time in Bollywood movies and then she went on to act in ‘Jackpot’ and ‘Ragini MMS 2’. This shows that she is getting recognition in industry. Even Bollywood Badshah, Shahrukh Khan was present at the premiere of ‘Jackpot’ and expressed a desire to work with the Indo-Canadian star. He said, “I have never been part of casting my films. Directors do it. If there is a film, I will be fortunate enough to work with Sunny Leone.”
Noted actor Naseeruddin Shah shared screen space with Sunny Leone in ‘Jackpot’.
While promoting ‘Jackpot’ Sunny said in an interview, “He (Naseeruddin Shah) is very calm and reserved, but he gives suggestions, which is very nice.” She further said, “I said to him, 'If you have any advice for me whether it is good or bad, I will take it.' Even if he tells me, 'You were horrible in the shot and you should try like this', I will not get offended.”
This shows that Sunny has a desire to learn and so it would be wrong to differentiate her on the basis of her past. Currently Sunny is working on ‘Tina and Lolo’. The movie will release this year.
Sunny was active in pornographic films from 2002 to 2013. Sunny also participated in reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ in 2011. There were a lot of controversies after she was admitted in the house as many politicians claimed that the channel was promoting pornography by inducting her on the show. After this show, she received her first movie offer from Mahesh Bhatt for ‘Jism 2’.
