- She credits 6 actresses for teaching her to be "ok (with) myself"
- It could be seen as an oblique reference to recent protests against her
- Sunny Leone was last seen in Tera Intezaar
Sunny Leone, who had a massively successful career in adult films before making the transition to Bollywood with 2012's Jism 2, credits these six actresses for teaching her to be comfortable in her own skin:
The 36-year-old actress' post could be seen as an oblique reference to recent protests against her in Bengaluru where she was meant to have been performing at a New Year's Eve event. Sunny eventually backed out after police said they could not guarantee her safety.
Sunny Leone has received a tremendous response from her fans on Twitter and Instagram. Here are some reactions:
Don't feel sad,— Abdullah Habib (@AB9Phenomenon) December 20, 2017

there are some people among us who are not success and they're always burnt with successful people.
you're the most desired lady in Asia right now.

Sunny's Instagram post has also been flooded with positive responses. "More power to you Girl... You have the most beautiful face as well as soul in this world... In this world if we can be anything, be humble. And you taught me that,' said one user. "This is perfect answer ma'am.... Those dumb people who judge you by your skin by your costume.... Now they are completely shut up their mouth," added another.
Sunny Leone's past as an adult actress was invoked in an uncomfortable TV interview last year which was widely criticised as being judgemental and sexist. The actress was praised for handling questions like whether or not an actor like Aamir Khan would work with her with poise and dignity. Later, Aamir Khan tweeted this:
Sunny,I wil b happy 2 wrk wid u.I hav absolutely no problems wid ur "past", as the interviewer puts it.Stay https://t.co/jX4V3wULJ8.a.2/2— Aamir Khan (@aamir_khan) January 20, 2016
Sunny Leone occupies a possibly unique space in the national consciousness - on one hand, there are protests when she is slated to perform at an event, on the other hand she is mobbed at public appearances. In case, you don't remember this is what happened in Kochi, in August:
Sunny Leone was last seen in Tera Intezaar opposite Arbaaz Khan. She also had a special song appearance in Shah Rukh Khan's Raees.
