I’m a shy person by nature: Sunny
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.”
