Sunny Leone to soon return with second season of her biopic
We have learned that the second season of the show will premiere on Zee5 on September 18. The poster of the second season of the web series was also revealed today, which features Sunny Leone and the actors who play her parents and brother.
Directed by Aditya Datt, ‘Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story Of Sunny Leone’ traced her journey from a girl-next-door’ to a Penthouse Pet. What is unique about the series is that it stars Sunny Leone as herself, which is a first when it comes to biopics.
The idea of an autobiographical web series came from producer Shareen, Leone told Scroll in an email interview from Los Angeles. “She [Shareen] came to us and explained what she wanted to shoot and the story she wanted to tell,” Leone said.
“How she wanted to tell the story of not just my career choices but my family as well, adding a more personal feel to the biopic. It was again Shareen and Daniel’s [Leone’s husband] idea that I would play myself which has not been done in Indian cinema.”
“This [the series] was for my fans and their curiosity and also to share with them my story to hopefully help people to know it’s okay to create your own destiny. Not choose my path but their own. It might be hard but the reward of freedom and accomplishment means more than dealing with a few haters,” Leone further added.
