Sunny Leone wants her topless clips removed!
Actress Sunny Leone has skipped the premiere of the documentary ‘Mostly Sunny, Partly Cloudy’, which charts her rise from a porn star to a mainstream Bollywood actress. The feature-length documentary by ace photojournalist Dilip Mehta premiered at the 41st Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) recently.
The tell-all documentary was apparently done with the full approval and participation of Sunny and her husband Daniel Weber. But, suddenly, the ‘Jism 2’ actress seemed to have developed cold feet over certain aspects of the film.
“Days ahead of the premiere, she called me and demanded that I delete the stray topless clips that I have used from her adult films. That is rather surprising coming from Sunny, who claims on camera that she does not give a damn about what people think of her past as an adult entertainer,” Dilip was quoted as saying in a PTI report.
“Sunny’s absence from TIFF has piqued everybody’s interest. I can understand why. Had she attended the premiere in a festival as big as this one, it would have only earned her a great deal of mileage,” the documentarian added.
Dilip and his filmmaker sister Deepa Mehta had even organised a lunch in honour of Sunny and her husband, but they didn’t turn up for the lunch or the premiere in the evening despite being in New York, only a short flight away.
Dilip Mehta filmed the former porn star over a period of two years in Canada, the US, India, London and Malaysia.
“There is absolutely nothing exploitative in the film,” Dilip Mehta said adding, “If anything, ‘Mostly Sunny’ paints a portrait of a beautiful and intelligent woman who has lived life on her own terms.”
‘Mostly Sunny, Partly Cloudy’ charts the life of Sunny Leone, born Karenjit Kaur Vohra in Sarnia, Ontario, from her childhood in a conservative Sikh family to her shift to Los Angeles, her emergence as one of the biggest adult movie stars in the world and her subsequent mainstream movie career breakthroughs in Mumbai.
