It has been 4 years since Sunny Leone stepped into Bollywood. Some actors have clearly refused to work with her, while some have kept their minds open.
“If there is a film [with Leone] then I would only be too happy to do that.”
Sunny Leone is undoubtedly one of the courageous yet polemic celebrities in B-Town. Post her appearance on Bigg Boss and Jism 2, she has caught the eye of millions around the globe.
In India, she is one of the most-searched people on Google. It has been said that the search for her has exceeded that of the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.
It’s simple: Jo dikhta hai, woh bikta hai. But is this a good thing or bad thing?
In January 2016, CNN-IBN reporter Bhupendra Chaubey attempted to criticise Leone’s pornographic past. However, she stood her ground and did not apologise for being what she was.
Since the historic interview which received global media coverage, many Bollywood actors have supported and lauded her for answering the questions positively and bravely.
Now that the grilling is over, Leone has expressed much interest in working with some big Bollywood actors.
The question is, which other actors should Sunny Leone act with? DESIblitz presents 7 Bollywood stars Leone should act with!
1. Aamir Khan
“I’m still going to be an Aamir Khan fan, I’m still going to watch his movies,” Sunny Leone mentioned in Chaubey’s interview.
After the interview, the ‘perfectionist’ Mr Khan tweeted Leone how he would be ‘happy’ to work with her and has no issues of her past.
It would be interesting to see their pairing on celluloid and whether the movie revolves around a social issue. Now that’s Khantastic news!
2. Vidya Balan
Vidya Balan entered the Bigg Boss 5 house to promote her film, The Dirty Picture. The episode (titled ‘Aapka Farmaan’) saw some of the female contestants perform to ‘Ooh La La’.
Impressed by her scintillating performance, Balan gave Leone the famous red saree that she wore in the song.
In an interview with media, Leone expressed Vidya Balan would be the ideal actress to portray her in a biopic.
We’re not too sure about a biopic but it would be a treat to watch the two beauties act in a Dirty Picture-style film.
3. Alia Bhatt
On the topic of Chaubey’s interview, Alia Bhatt was one of the mainstream actresses to defend Leone on Twitter, alongside Anushka Sharma.
Bhatt slammed Chaubey for having ‘hyper-opinionated statements with a question mark at the end.’
It seems like Alia Bhatt has turned into a real ‘Patakha Guddi’ whilst supporting Sunny Leone! Perhaps they could feature in a female-centric movie together?
4. Salman Khan
Salman ‘Dabanng’ Khan is another actor who has a ‘special place’ in Leone’s heart, especially because she participated in Bigg Boss 5, which was hosted by Mr Khan and Sanjay Dutt.
Sunny Leone mentions:
“I am a big fan of him. He was one of the first people in the industry to wish me luck and welcome me in India.”
As we know, Salman Khan has supported actresses like Katrina Kaif and Jacqueline Fernandez, who have now become superstars.
Despite Leone’s popularity, perhaps a collaboration with Salman Khan could become the next big 100-crore blockbuster?
5. Priyanka Chopra (PeeCee)
Whilst promoting Ragini MMS 2, Leone mentioned that Priyanka Chopra was her current favorite actress as Chopra has: “Infiltrated not only every market in Bollywood but also Hollywood.”
Recently, there was tension between the two actresses with some media reporting how PeeCee refused to get a picture clicked with Leone.
Fortunately, the two have patched up and all is well (for now). Potentially could these two be the new ‘Dhoom’ heroines?
6. Shahrukh Khan (SRK)
It isn’t just Aamir and Salman who are willing to act with Leone but also the King of Romance himself, SRK.
At the premiere of Leone’s film Jackpot, SRK mentioned: “If there is a film [with Leone] then I would only be too happy to do that.”
These two could possibly come in a romantic, Yash Chopra-style movie. In fact, it would be different to watch Leone as a quintessential, Hindi-film heroine with a modern tadka!
7. Hrithik Roshan
The three Khans weren’t the only ones to top Leone’s list. How could we forget our very own Duggu?
During the launch of her workout DVD, Leone reportedly admitted that Hrithik Roshan has the perfect sculpted body and is therefore an inspiration.
Roshan’s hot chemistry with Katrina Kaif in Bang Bang was exciting. Maybe the Roshan-Leone could be just as sizzling in another action rom-com!
On the whole, Sunny Leone has gained a lot of support from stars, media and audiences alike at.
With mutual interests from the three Khans to work with her is an achievement in itself.
It seems like the future is bright for Sunny!
