Celebrating The Career Of Sunny Leone!
This picture above was posted by a Facebook friend, and it intrigued me…I wasn’t aware of Sunny Leone at the time, but that’s now been changed!
Sunny Leone has a fascinating career, so let’s dig in!
She was born Karenjit Kaur Vohra – of Indian descent – in Ontario Canada in 1981.
Her family moved to Southern California when she was 15 years old, and within a few years she was modeling!
By the time she was twenty, Sunny was being featured in a ton of men’s magazines!
In 2001 Sunny was named Penthouse Pet of the Month for the March issue – the first Model of Indian heritage to get that honor.
Appearances in other magazines soon followed, including “Cheri”, “High Society”, “Swank”, “Leg World”, “Hustler” and “Club International”.
In 2005, Sunny Leone entered the adult film industry and worked her way to the top, becoming one of the most successful pornstars in the world. In addition to acting in adult films, Leone produced and directed over 60 films!
Here’s a sample of some of the films she appeared in:
Sunny Takes Over Bollywood!
Here’s where I think her story get even more fascinating!
In 2011, Sunny went to India to appear on the reality TV show “Bigg Boss” – and while there, she was offered the lead role in an erotic thriller called “Jism 2”.
The film was a huge hit, and Sunny stayed in India and focused on Indian cinema – not only adult films but but regional cinema as well!
She even did song and dance numbers . Her third feature role in Ragini MMS 2 garnered her more praise and box office success.
In just five years, she appeared in more than 20 Indian films!
She’s aware of just how unique her career is – as she said in 2015:
“I actually dislike the word reinvent. I never want to reinvent me, I love who I am. But what does happen very organically is I grow and evolve as human being, actress and professional. So over the months, yes things will change but it’s not something that is planned. “
On September 8, 2016, Leone became the first Bollywood actress to walk the runway for New York Fashion Week. She modeled clothes for designer, Archana Kochhar.
Bravo to Sunny for a unique career that crossed over from adult work to mainstream success…that’s very rare in the adult world:
