A breath of fresh air is coming the way of all Sunny Leone fans! Having seen her in Bollywood item numbers, dance floor hits, and comedy films, you'll be seeing the Indo-Canadian actor in a serious role (after Jism 2.) According to a report by HT, after Vidya Balan and Madhuri Dixit are said to have turned down the offer, Sunny Leone stepped up to play Meena Kumari in director Karan Razdan's biopic of the legendary actor.
Imagine Sunny Leone playing the Tragedy Queen of Bollywood on the big screen! Shocked as much as we are, right?
“I think the only one, who is courageous enough and said to me, ‘When can we start this film?’, has been Sunny Leone. I have narrated it to Madhuri and Vidya but it didn’t work out for one reason or the other. Sunny came along, she said she had heard about this film and wanted me to narrate it. I met her at her house, had a long narration. I don’t know... She is not the ideal choice, I would say. But she was the most enthusiastic about doing the role. I guess, she also saw this as her big chance,” said Razdan.
Although, Vidya Balan was his first choice, "I wanted her to play the role of an actress of the 1960s. The film dealt with alcoholism and tragedy,” Sunny's enthusiasm bagged her the role. Can't wait for the more details about the movie to come out. Wonder what Sunny would be like playing a cult!
