The porn starturned-Bollywood starlet was true to form, when she turned out to promote her upcoming release Ek Paheli Leela with co-actor Jay Bhanushali.
Wearing red perhaps is Sunny’s way of making a style statement – random recall on her average public appearances would reveal she seems to have preferred the colour over other hues all along. At Monday’s event in a Mumbai suburb, her choice of the colour red for her dress could have to do with the fact that her new ‘sexy’ film casts her in a sizzling dual avatar. Either way, Sunny was dressed to suit the occasion and her image of a screen siren.
Jay and the film’s director Bobby Khan seemed happy to let Sunny bask in media limelight, with the gathered paparazzi clearly interested only in chasing her for photo-ops and bytes. Also spotted at the do was director Bobby’s choreographer brother Ahmed Khan with wife Shaira, a former model. T-Series honcho and producer Bhushan Kumar was also seen posing for the shutterbugs.
The film’s other male lead, Rajneesh Duggal, however, was absent from the film’s promotional event. Sunny plays a double role in the film as a glamorous UK-based model and as a sensuous Rajasthani princess. And it goes without saying that the roles are cut out to let the oomph diva exude sex appeal of two different types – ultra modern and ethnic.
Among gimmicks incorporated in the film is Sunny dancing to the beats of Dholi Taaro, a song made popular by Aishwarya Rai in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam in 1999. Also, rumour has it that Sunny’s husband Daniel Weber has a cameo in the film.
Following Ek Paheli Leela, Sunny has a couple of lowbudget sex comedies lined up for the year. She will be seen opposite Vir Das and Tusshar Kapoor in Milap Zaveri’s Mastizaade, besides in Devang Dholakia’s Kuch Kuch Locha Hai, featuring Ram Kapoor.
