She may be the talk of the town every now and then, but her films don’t get numbers ringing at the Box office. And it seems like SUNNY LEONE is slowly getting deleted from the lists of producers and filmmakers. Will the damsel keep her game on in B’town with whatever little she gets to do, or will she happily return to her own little world? Nawaz Kochra tries to find out.
The pallette of Bollywood has a variety of shades, and they all fill in a new colour to every film they sign. However, not all colours stay permanent: some manage to sustain while the others fade. The game of showbiz gets tougher day by day, and in these tough times, survival is a task. In 2012, Bollywood had quite a controversial in, Sunny Leone, a porn star leaving her past behind, who came to B’town for a new beginning. Her beauty had no boundaries and it looked like she was here to give the actresses a run for their money. Yes, Sunny Leone is the most desirable woman, she is everyone’s fantasy, but no one’s choice. Fighting her detractors, she managed to get into the rosy seat she is in. She fought and successfully so, but it seems the seat is done with her, and she can be overthrown anytime.
Her initial two projects were probably the biggest in her career so far: Jism 2 with Pooja Bhatt and Ragini MMS 2 with Balaji films. But after that, all the actress did was play eye candy to titillate the viewers. Whatever the role was, Sunny took it up and maintained her persona of a sultry siren. Today, four years down the line, it looks like the viewers are bored to watch the same Sunny Leone, who once was a novel adornment in the frame.
In 2016, Sunny had a few releases, but they didn’t manage to do that well. Few of the films were from big banners, and they tanked at the Box Office.
