Met Sunny Leone recently at the promotional event of her upcoming film namely Devang Dholakia’s ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’ at the Levo Restaurant in Model Town, Andheri, Mumbai. Right at the outset she came across as a very warm, vivacious & vibrant persona. After winning the hearts of the International & the regional audiences, in films like ‘The Girl Next Door’, ‘Pirate’s Blood’, ‘The Virginity Hit’ et al & ‘DK’ (Kannada), ‘Vadacurry’ (Tamil), ‘Current Theega’ (Telugu) et al, Karanjeet Kaur Vohra (Her Birth name) aka Sunny Leone (Her screen name) is an American – Canadian actress now literally making the Indian cine goers dance to her tunes in her Bollywood films like ‘Jism 2’, ‘Shootout At Wadala’, ‘Jack Pot’, ‘Ragini MMS 2’, ‘Hate Story 2’, ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ and now she will repeat history with Devang Dholakia’s ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’. Just with more than half a dozen film’s release Sunny Leone has became an actress to be reckoned with, in fact a household name amongst the Indian audiences not to forget the fact that she had already charmed her way into the hearts of the International audiences and by the way she has now also settled down into a blissful marital life with her better half Daniel Webber who now also manages both her personal as well as professional affairs and of course Daniel Webber was himself launched as an actor in a recently announced Bollywood film ‘Dangerous Husn’. How Symbolic!!!
To set the ball rolling in your court, can we say that Sunny Leone is content with her Bollywoodian career so far?
You bet I am. As in my half a dozen Bollywoodian films released so far I have got the meatiest roles that I could really sink my teeth into. What more could I ask for? I have already enacted diverse roles, roles that not only a newbie actress but an actress of repute would die for. And I think my recent best was in Ahmed Khan & Bobby Khan’s ‘Ek Paheli Leela’. And wait & watch! The crowning glory of my histrionics per se would be in my upcoming film namely Devang Dholakia’s ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’.
So would you like to elaborate on what is ‘Kuch Kuch Locha hai’ all about?
My upcoming movie ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’ is a comic entertainer, a jolly good film & a roller coaster ride all the way from start to end. Okay! So ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’ is about a Patel family of which Ram Kapoor is the head. Every thing is hunky dory in the Patel family until he meets and falls in love with a Bollywood Diva that’s me. And then everything goes topsy turvy in the Patel family’s life and of course the Bollywood Divas life too.
Your opinion about Devang Dholakia as a director?
Oh my God what do I say about Devang? While working with him during ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’ I found Devang to be the sweetest & the coolest director on the sets. He would give his directorial instructions to us and then also accept our impromptu suggestions, thereby also giving us a complete leeway to tackle the role the way we perceive but not away from the way he has conceived it.
Ram Kapoor is known as the biggest prankster on & off the sets. How could you cope up with him during the making of ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’?
First of all I was too shocked when I was told that Ram Kapoor would be my co-star. Frankly speaking my 1st reaction was how will this oddest pairing of Ram Kapoor – Sunny Leone work? But then I thought that if such oddest pairing works in Hollywood then why not in Bollywood?
But Ram Kapoor…….?
Oh yes! I am coming to that. I was a bit apphrensive about working with Ram Kapoor in the beginning. But once I started interacting with him on the sets of ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’ I found him to be a very lovable & a very frank & honest person. But of course I was very scared of his innocent physicality touch on & off the sets, so I was very protective about myself whenever he was around on & off the sets too. But by and by I realized that it was just in his nature to behave with everyone alike.
So what’s next after ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’?
A Lots. The fIlms to be released after ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’ are ‘Balvinder Singh Pass Ho Gaya’, ‘Mastizaade’, ‘Tina & Lolo’, ‘One Night Stand’ and many more International, Boilywood & Regional films This is just the beginnin which has no end to it.
Now that your better half Daniel Webber has also stepped into the Bollywoodian limelight, do you guide him or offer your precious tips in histrionics per se?
Yes I did attend the launch function of his debut film ‘Dangerous Husn’ after which he got busy with his workshops for ‘Dangerous Husn’, But of course whenever we both are free and before going to bed I give Hindi coaching to Daniel. Which I have myself picked up and perfected it in the long run.
One last question. You have a very controversial past, which is like a blemish, and its reputation you have rarely clarified. Would you like to offer any clarification of your own free will?
To be very frank & honest my emphatic answer is no with a capital “N”. The only thing I would say in this regard is that there is no point in raking up my past. I was what I was and I am what I am “Now”. And why bother about my future, when I am myself not bothered about it. Period!!!!!
