Sunny Leone makesTelugu debut
Sunny Leone is one of Bollywood’s unlikely success stories. When she made her debut with Mahaseh Bhatt’s ‘Jism 2’ in 2012, most people thought her to be just another pretty face form foreign shores who will fizzle out after one or two appearances on the big screen. But to the surprise of many, after two years in the industry her position has only strengthened and she has multiple projects to choose from. Apart from Bollywood, she is in demand in South India as well. She appeared in the 2014 Tamil film ‘Vadacurry’ in a special item number. She is also making her acting debut in Tollywood (Telugu film industry) with the film, ‘Current Teega.’
As per reports, in the film Sunny will be playing the role of a school teacher albeit a glamorous one. She will also appear in a hot item song in the film. Apart from Sunny, the lead roles are being played by Manchu Manoj, Rakul Preet Singh and Jagapathi Babu. The director of the film is G Nageswara Reddy. Sources are saying that the film is a remake of the 2013 super hit Tamil romantic comedy film, ‘Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam’.
Sunny seems to be very excited about this project. The actor said in a statement, “I am really excited about my role in Current Teega. It’s an important character created to entertain you thoroughly.” The production team behind the film feels that Sunny is one of the biggest entertainment factors in films today and her presence will help the film a lot. Apart from her southern projects, Sunny is quite busy hosting the television show, ‘Splitsvilla 7’. She also has been roped in for an item number in the upcoming erotic thriller, ‘Hate Story 2’.
Currently Sunny is in Jaipur for the shooting of the TV show and she could not find time to rehearse for the song ‘pink lips’. As a result, the song’s choreographers will be flying to Jaipur to help her practice. For the shooting however she will come to Mumbai. The makers are expecting to cash in the buzz that will be generated by her item number to heavily promote the film. Sunny’s involvement however seems to have made the leading lady of the film, Surveen Chawla uneasy. She is putting on hold all of her projects so that she can be the focus of the promotion instead of Sunny.
