It seems like this is a year of biopics because after ‘Sanju’ it is time for Sunny Leone’s biopic. Titled ‘Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story’ the biopic web-series is making headlines for varied reasons.
Sunny Leone aka Karenjit Kaur began her career as an adult movie star in Los Angles and then moved to India to become an actress in Bollywood. The series based on her life traces how she came to be an adult star from being a timid teenager in Canada.
Launched at Zee5 platform, the series is getting mixed responses. Despite having a sensational story base the series hasn’t been able to create a lasting impact. But it recently brought forward an episode from Sunny Leone’s life that none would have expected.
As per reports, one scene in the biopic shows Sunny’s first time watching a blue film. And her reaction, after that, is shocking to all. In that scene, Sunny watches her first blue film with her brother and her friend.
But after watching the movie the former adult movie star felt very guilty. She apparently even cried in front of Guru Nanak’s photo and prayed for his forgiveness. Born into a conservative Sikh family it naturally must have been a shocking experience for Sunny.
The scene also shows Sunny Leone swearing to God that she would never watch such film again. But little did she know what was on the cards for her future. When asked about if she felt uncomfortable making the biopic, this is what Sunny Leone reportedly told IBT:
“Yes, so many things, and I think as you watch it you will feel what might have made me sad or uncomfortable. Every tear you see me shed in the two seasons are real tears pouring out of my heart and soul. Never want to feel the things I felt while shooting ever again in my life. I thought I was ready to shoot this but I was not ready, and I was hurt to my core and my spirit broke. I have not felt that since my parents died, and I still feel broken from season two. Am internally trying to figure out how to heal. It’s a process.”
We hope that this biopic does wonders for Sunny’s personal as well as professional growth.
