Sunny Leone Doesn’t Want ‘Mostly Sunny’ To Be Screened In India

Actress Sunny Leone doesn’t want the upcoming documentary on her life, Mostly Sunny, to be screened in India, as she feels it does not do justice to her story.

Mostly Sunny, directed by Dilip Mehta, is based on the life of Leone, who was born as Karenjit Kaur Vohra in Sarnia, Ontario. It tracks her childhood spent in a conservative Sikh family, her shift to Los Angeles where she became one of the biggest adult movie stars in the world, and her subsequent move to the mainstream movies through Bollywood.


However, Leone feels Mostly Sunny is less of a film on her life and more of “somebody else’s opinion“.  She was quoted by PTI as saying, “I hope it doesn’t come to India. Because that’s not the story that is mine. This is somebody else’s opinion, somebody else’s vision. No one has a right to tell your life story except for you… It’s not a biopic made on my life where you can manipulate and say what you want. It is not like you are appealing to cinematic liberty. This is somebody’s life. This is my life, I take it very personally.” Reportedly, the actress wanted certain changes in the documentary.

The documentary recently premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. Leone didn’t attend the screening, citing a family function, and the director said he was surprised that Leone developed cold feet before the Toronto premiere.
