New Delhi: Sunny Leone reportedly doesn't have time for her mentor Ekta Kapoor with whom she made Ragini MMS 2, which is arguably the high point of Sunny's Bollywood career. Sunny Leone apparently turned down an offer to promote Ekta Kapoor's web-series Ragini MMS Returns, starring Riya Sen in lead role. Two years after Jism 2 (Sunny's Bollywood debut), Sunny Leone starred in Ekta Kapoor's hit film Ragini MMS 2. A source told mid-day that Sunny is leaving for Los Angeles to look after her production house. Therefore, she couldn't promote the web-series, as Ekta would have liked it. A Balaji Telefilms source told mid-day: "Sunny's decision irked Ekta. Ragini MMS 2 was a landmark film in her career. She should have accommodated the project for the sake of loyalty towards Ekta."

But another source refuted reports of a discord and said: "Sunny would have been more than happy to promote Ragini MMS Returns, but is unfortunately not available on those dates. Ekta's team understood that completely. There is no bitterness between them." The source also said that Sunny Leone and Ekta Kapoor may also collaborate on a show soon.



Sunny Leone first participated in controversial reality show Bigg Boss, where filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and his daughter Pooja Bhatt spotted her. They gave Sunny Leone her first Bollywood film - Jism 2 - which was directed by Pooja. She was next seen in Jackpot, which performed at the box office contrary to its name and then came Ragini MMS 2. Sunny Leone's also made films such as Ek Paheli Leela, Mastizaade and Kuch Kuch Locha Hai. She is awaiting the release of Tera Intezar, co-starring Arbaaz Khan.

Sunny's featured in special songs like Pink Lips (from Hate Story 2), Laila Main Laila (from Raees) and her recent ones were Piya More (from Baadshaho) and Trippy Trippy (from Bhoomi).
