The noted adult star turned Bollywood actress, Sunny Leone appeared on Neha Dhupia’s podcast, #NoFilterNeha. The actress recollected memories when the bigwigs of the film industry were not even ready to share stage with her and how even after having earned position, fame and money she has no friends.
“I was new then and when a new person comes in, it’s like they think its shady or who is this person and where does she come from blah blah blah. I think there is some sense of curiosity plus at that moment there were probably many women who didn’t like me. I’m okay with that, I don’t really care so much but it was weird to sit there, and I was sitting there for very long because they couldn’t find somebody to go on stage with me. Somebody told Daniel and then Daniel told me,” said Sunny.
But now, after an item song with Shah Rukh Khan and one in Sanjay Dutt’s film ‘Bhoomi’, seems like situation has changed. Sunny has also maintained her position as the most searched celebrity on Google for three consecutive years.
“People always try to tear you down or they are trying to hurt you with their words but numbers are something which is real. They are not a paid report and when I see them it just confirms in my head that I’m in the right place, I’m where I need to be and it reminds me how amazing and supportive my fans are beside anybody else who tries to push me down,” said Sunny.
However, success, fame and money have failed to get her friends. “I made really nice friends with people that I have worked with, and I know it sounds weird but I only meet people when I’m working with them. I am not a part of any social group or club and what I find is that people get so weird and shallow that it’s not me that they want to know, it’s someone else.”
