Sunny Leone has always been targeted for her porn star past while at the same time being approached for movies, events and endorsements. People continue to take potshots at her past and equate her adult star movies with prostitution. This incident was exactly that. Sunny was at an event, ‘Play Holi With Sunny Leone’ at a hotel at Surat, Gujarat.
A reporter from a national news channel suddenly started interviewing her in the corridor of the hotel. He asked Leone, “You were a porn star earlier, now you are a film star. So how much do you charge now?”, according to a report in Mid-Day. The actress was enraged at the reporter for his insolence and asked him to repeat his question. He then asked, “How much do you charge for a night program?”. Sunny flew into a fit of rage, slapped him in full view of the visitors and hotel staff and went back to her hotel room.
Sunny kept her professional commitments and danced to popular Bollywood numbers for 15 minutes. She told the organisers she would only come to the event if there is no media inside.
Leone’s husband Danny Weber who was with her, told Mid-day: Sunny has given an apt reply to the reporter so we are not filing any police complaint. The organisers were also college kids so we do not want their careers to be damaged. But henceforth, Sunny will think a thousand times before coming to Gujarat.”
Now, as per the latest reports, Huffington Post quotes Weber as saying the story is “completely false” and “nothing happened at all”.
