Sunny Leone, who has been an integral part of the Indian film industry, ever since she stepped into this country has found herself in a fresh set of controversy. This time regarding the Kannada film she signed titled 'Veeramahadevi'. The actress, who has been protested against previously too for making special appearances or special performances, has once again become a target with the news of her arrival in Karnataka.
Members of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike (KRV) on Monday, October 22 staged a protest outside Town Hall against Sunny Leone and burnt her posters. Few pictures that surfaced on the social media sees the group tearing posters as they get clicked by the cameras.
Previously, Harish, state secretary of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sena had said, "We're saying once again we don't have anything against the organisers. We oppose Sunny Leone's upcoming flick 'Veeramadevi'. The movie is based on the daughter of Raja Raja Chola. It hurts our sentiments. We've spoken to some grounds in Tamil Nadu and they too have opposed the movie. We will not allow it to be screened. We will protest and not allow her to enter Karnataka."
Meanwhile, Sunny Leone recently released the first season of her biopic web series, in which she plays herself. The series, ‘Karenjit Kaur- The Untold Story’ focuses on her journey as she goes from being Karenjit to the star that she is today. A lot has happened in the Indian film industry in the past few weeks. From the #MeToo movement soaring high with celebrities sharing their stories, Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh's upcoming marriage announcement, content-driven films doing well at the box office to the latest episode of Koffee With Karan that created a stir, all in all, Bollywood is buzzing with stories like never before.
