Since she made her Bol­ly­wood de­but in 2012, she has al­ready starred in over half-a-dozen films. The ac­tor won­ders at the same time, how she gets blamed for any­thing go­ing wrong. When asked about a re­cent on­line ar­ti­cle head­lined ‘Why is Sunny Leone re­spon­si­ble for every­thing in In­dia,’ she says, “I ask my­self the same ques­tion, and want to know, ‘Why is it my fault?’ I have no idea and I don’t even know the an­swer. But some­how I am at fault for a lot of dif­fer­ent things that hap­pen here (smiles), but (a few) things have been go­ing on even be­fore I got here.” We ask her if she’s got used to such un­wanted at­ten­tion. “I don’t know if any­one can ever get used to some of the things that hap­pen. Does it af­fect me? Yes. Daniel (We­ber; hus­band) and I have to dis­cuss such things out loud be­cause he deals with such things on a dif­fer­ent level, and I deal with it on a more emo­tional level. I think Daniel gets more up­set. But I guess, at the end of the day, you have to brush it off your shoul­ders the way you brush your hair. Asked to com­ment on a re­cent re­mark by a politi­cian that con­dom com­mer­cials done by her will lead to more rapes in In­dia, she says, “I am pro­mot­ing safe sex and un­wanted preg­nan­cies. If a fam­ily isn’t ready to have a baby, it’s a good method of con­tra­cep­tion as it doesn’t af­fect a woman’s health, un­like birth con­trol pills, which af­fect a woman’s body. I don’t see it as a bad thing.”
