Indian Farmer puts up Sunny Leone Poster to Save Crops

An Indian farmer has found an unusual purpose for a Sunny Leone poster – setting it up in his Andhra Pradesh farm! He claims the poster is saving his crops and warding off “evil eye”.

"To ward off their evil eye, I thought of this idea of putting up the big flax poster of Sunny Leone."

There are possible places fans would put up a Sunny Leone poster, such as their bedroom or even living room. But what about a farm? Sounds strange – yet a farmer had done just that!

The Andhra Pradesh man, named A Chenu Reddy, made headlines over his unusual choice of a ‘scarecrow’.

However, the poster’s purpose isn’t for scaring away crows – it’s actually to ward off the “evil eye” of rival farmers.

Surprisingly though, the 45-year-old isn’t a fan of the Bollywood starlet. But it seems he’s fairly confident his competitors are. Reddy told Hindustan Times:

“This year, I have a good crop on 10 acres. This has been attracting unnecessary attention of villagers and passersby. To ward off their evil eye, I thought of this idea of putting up the big flax poster of Sunny Leone a couple of days ago.”

This particular poster features a racy image of Sunny, who wears a stunning red bikini. Showing off her voluptuous figure, she beams a sultry smile. On top is a caption that reads:

“Orey, nannu chusi edavakura (Hey, don’t cry or feel jealous of me)!” Perhaps a fitting message for the Indian farm.

Yet Reddy’s plan appears to be working as he said: “The trick has worked. Nobody is looking at my crop now.”

In the past, the farmer attempted the traditional approach of placing a scarecrow in his field. However, he was unable to put one up this year. For an alternative plan, Reddy decided to put up a poster, telling The News Minute:

“I went to the computer centre and asked them to give me a photo which will deviate the attention of the people away from my crops… and they gave me this photo.”

It seems then the staff at the centre knew Sunny’s booming fame in the country. Previously, she has drawn unbelievable crowds in Kochi – with thousands keen to see her. However, someone else has taken her popularity – at least on Google.

Remember India’s new favourite actress, Priya Prakash Varrier? She continues to dazzle the internet as she gains more followers on social media. The 18-year-old became the first Indian star to get 610,000 followers on her first day on the website.

Now she has landed a new achievement. Priya has become the most searched star on Google searches – surpassing Sunny Leone! With this amazing feat, it seems the internet’s love of Priya is far from over.

But despite this, Sunny still holds great influence over her Indian fans, particularly the Andhra Pradesh’s competitors.

We just wonder if the star herself knows of the farmer’s unusual way to save his crops and what she thinks!
