Good wins over evil for Sunny Leone!
On Saturday (November 3), Sunny Leone kept her date with Bengaluru city, for a stage performance, amidst a heavy security blanket. Pro-Kannada outfits had threatened to organise a massive protest if she performed at the said event. Reportedly, police had tightened the security in and around the venue fearing that the members of a fringe group, Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene (KRVYS), would disrupt the show.
When contacted, Sunny told us, “To start with, I must say I am super happy and thankful to Bengaluru for showing up in such big numbers. I will always be indebted to all of them for showering this kind of love and support that they did. More than anything, it goes on to prove that there will always be more good than evil. I am also really thankful to Bengaluru Police for being so kind, gracious and supportive.” Sunny performed to a number of hit songs such as Laila (from Raees) to Baby doll (Ragini MMS 2) during her performance. Local organisers said they were “absolutely delighted” to have Sunny perform, “despite all the protests”.
Apparently, KRVYS — an offshoot of pro-Kannada organisation Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) — was opposing the event, with the belief that the show would spoil the culture of Bengaluru, and also because she is playing the lead role in a multi-lingual movie Veeramahadevi, a period drama portraying a warrior. Back in 2017, too, Sunny’s show — slated to take place on December 31 — was cancelled following protests by some Kannada outfits, including KRV.
