May 13 also happens to be the birthday of popular spiritual guru Pandit Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
People tweeted their wishes to Leone and found the new Twitter trend, a welcome break from political news because of the ongoing Lok Sabha Elections.
Sunny Leone was a contestant in the popular reality show Bigg Boss after which she made her mark in Bollywood starring in Mahesh Bhatt's Jism 2 in 2012. She has since done many item songs in various films. Her most famous item songs are Baby Doll from Ekta Kapoor's film Ragini MMS 2 and Laila from the 2013 film Shootout at Wadala.
Leone confirmed in November 2013 that she is going to make her debut in the Tamil film industry with the film Vadacurry.
No more political tweets on my timeline.Thankyou Sunny Leone.
