Bollywood actor Sunny Leone's namesake recently cracked the junior engineering exam in Bihar. As per details released on the website, Leone's namesake managed a score of 98.50, with 73.50 points based on her academic performance while scoring a perfect 25 for her professional experience.
She is said to have scored 98.5 points, 73.5 of these awarded on account of her education and the rest under the head experience.

When the matter was brought to the notice of PHED minister Vinod Narayan Jha, he hastened to clarify this is not the final list. Those whose names figure will have to undergo a screening process which would include verification of their documents and certificates.
The department's special secretary Satish Chandra Mishra responded with a mix of bemusement and bewilderment and said I do not know who is Sunny Leone. But it does sound a name that might have been uploaded on the website by way of mischief. We will get it sorted out.
Unlike the 38-year-old celebrity, who was born to Sikh parents settled in Ontario, her namesake in the list has been described as a female belonging to the general (unreserved) category and her father's name is stated to be Leona Leone.
The list of about 18.000 duly registered candidates has more bizarreness to offer. Also, the second-ranking Nirmal Chakraborty's father is, oddly, called Om Puri.
Meanwhile, the entire incident has caught the attention of Bollywood actress Sunny Leone who then took to Twitter in order to congratulate her namesake.
'HAHA, Im so glad the OTHER me has scored so well !!!!! lol...' she wrote.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Sunny Leone is busy shooting for a reality show 'Splitsvilla' where she serves as a host along with VJ Rannvijay. Apart from this, the former adult movie star also owns a production business.
