Sunny Leone is a prominent adult or X-rated actress of Indian origin who is gradually making her inroads into mainstream commercial cinema.
Born in Ontario, Canada to parents of Indian Sikh origin, Sunny Leone made her way into the pornographic industry in spite of stiff opposition from her parents and family. Notwithstanding the protests and the chiding from her family members, Sunny Leone continued doing what she had started off on and eventually it seemed as though there was simply no looking back for her at all.
It all started with Sunny Leone’s classes to become a pediatric nurse where one of her classmates who also happened to be an exotic dancer, in turn introduced Leone to professionals from the porn industry. Soon, Leone featured on Penthouse as the Pet of the Month for March 2001 which was soon followed by her appearance as a feature in the 2001 Holiday edition of Hustler.
Then from Penthouse and various other publications, hard core pornography was never too far away in the case of Sunny Leone, especially after she signed up with Vivid Entertainment for a three year contract. Many productions followed, although there were initial inhibitions apparent, like for instance she was not comfortable with shooting with other men and therefore did lesbian films at the outset, followed by an assertion that if with men, it had to be with her then fiancé Matt Erikson only.
But it was only a matter of time before all such assertions would be thrown out of the window, especially after Sunny Leone launched her own studio, Sunlust Pictures in 2008. Now Sunny Leone would produce her own set of films and adult entertainment content which would in turn only be distributed by Vivid Entertainment. Also, now that she was no longer tied to Vivid Entertainment, Sunny Leone went ahead and starred in or produced adult entertainment content for a variety of platforms, particularly online ones.
By 2009, there was even an iPhone app featuring non-sexual or non-nude images and videos of Sunny Leone which was featured on the iTunes store, although it was taken down the following year in 2010.
In the interim, Sunny Leone had always made direct and indirect assertions about her desire to branch out into mainstream commercial entertainment and accordingly, we saw a series of appearances on her part which seemed to take her away from the pornographic industry and her activities there, on to appearances, first on MTV India, then on the Indian reality series Bigg Boss on Colors TV.
In the past, Leone had been approached by Indian film director Mohit Suri for the film Kalyug but her 1 Million Dollar price tag seemed a tag too high at that time. Subsequently though, Sunny Leone has been confirmed for Jism 2, the sequel to Jism, being made by the Bhatt camp – Mahesh Bhatt and his daughter, Pooja Bhatt. She is also set to appear in the sequel of Ekta Kapoor’s Ragini MMS.
Clearly, there is a lot to Sunny Leone’s personality which you would like to get up, close and personal with, and where better to do so, than right here on WatchIndia.TV and the plethora of Indian television content that we have for you on it?
