Sunny Leone is in South Africa for her biopic shoot

The former porn star & Ek Paheli Leela actress is in South Africa and has already kicked off the shoot for the next season of her biopic.

The video-streaming platform Zee5 announced a biopic on the actor’s life, ‘Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story of Sunny Leone.’ She made a name for herself in the Indian film industry after leaving her porn star career and has also found her charm on Indian television as a reality show host.

Leone has been seen at Sun City and is currently in Cape Town under a watchful eye of personal trainer, Lian Wentzel. Check her out here with Wentzel activating her beast mode. 

Ever since its announcement, there has been a lot of buzz around the biopic of Sunny Leone. Titled ‘Karenjit Kaur — The Untold Story’, the film is expected to throw light on the highs and lows of Sunny’s life.

In a recent interview, the actress had said that she wasn’t emotionally prepared to let the world see her life’s story. In fact, Sunny did face quite a few challenging moments during the shoot of the movie, especially in some sequences involving her parents, who are no more.

A source reveals, “The first season, which consists of six episodes, traces Sunny Leone‘s childhood and teenage years. The second part will highlight her career in the US and may even include her marriage to Daniel Weber. There is a possibility that Daniel will make a cameo in the series.” The makers, we hear, are hoping to release the second instalment later this year.

Leone, who recently turned mother to twin boys Asher and Noah through surrogacy, says that the audience curiosity around her prompted the idea of the biopic. “A lot of people out there are curious to know who I am, where I have come from and what motivated the decisions I’ve made in my life. I want them to watch the show to know the real me, instead of harbouring the perception that they have created in their minds. I can’t reveal much about the second season as we have just started shooting,” says the actor, who burst on the Indian entertainment scene with Bigg Boss in 2011 and went on to pursue a career in Bollywood.

The film will trace her life from her childhood — Sunny was born as Karenjit Kaur into a middle class Sikh family in Canada — to becoming an adult film actress and her journey in Bollywood.

The past few months have been eventful for Sunny and her husband Daniel Weber, who welcomed their twins Noah and Asher through surrogacy. Last year, they had also adopted a baby girl from India, Nisha Weber.
What is also keeping Sunny busy is her make-up range, Star Struck by Sunny Leone, which she recently launched.
