I’m a shy per­son by na­ture: Sunny

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Monika Rawal Kukreja monika.rawal@htlive.com

Ac­tor Sunny Leone be­lieves in liv­ing on the edge and tak­ing life as it comes. This year, when Sunny got to do an item song, Laila Main Laila, in the Shah Rukh Khan-star­rer Raees, she felt this was a once-in-al­ife­time mo­ment. And why not! De­spite hav­ing just one song in the film, she got to be part of all pro­mo­tional ac­tiv­i­ties along with Shah Rukh Khan (in­set). Has it upped her game? She gushes, “It has been an in­cred­i­ble jour­ney. I be­lieve when you work with amaz­ing ac­tors on great projects, doors do open.”

While many might think that Sunny is a to­tal ex­tro­vert, given her bold roles and item songs for Bol­ly­wood films, the 35-year-old re­veals that she’s quite the op­po­site. “Dur­ing the pro­mo­tions (of Raees) and the whole ex­pe­ri­ence, I’ve learnt how to open up to meet­ing peo­ple. I’m a shy per­son by na­ture, an in­tro­vert… and SRK helped me to meet new peo­ple,” says Sunny.

Be­sides Shah Rukh, an­other Khan that Sunny can’t re­sist talk­ing about is Mr Per­fec­tion­ist, Aamir. Re­port­edly, Sunny has hired Aamir’s act­ing coach to help her be­come a bet­ter per­former. Con­firm­ing that, she says, “Yes, I’ve hired [Aamir’s] coach for cer­tain projects. He has helped me out a lot with learn­ing Hindi and also testing my­self in new ar­eas.”

In the past, Sunny ex­pressed her wish to work with Aamir, and Aamir replied that he wouldn’t have any prob­lems with that. Sunny says, “Aamir was the first per­son I met with whom I felt com­fort­able ask­ing for ad­vice.”
