Sunny Leone has been heaped with praises by her colleagues from the film fraternity post her interview with a leading news channel in the country.
Questions posed to the adult-film star in a TV interview have the film celebrities enraged.
Sunny Leone first appeared on Indian Television in the reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ and has been seen on silver screen since then. The actress is currently busy promoting her new film “Mastizaade” directed by Milap Zaveri.
During one such promotional TV interview, CNN IBN anchor Bhupendra Chaubey posed some questions, which Sunny tackled quite sportingly. (Read: Sunny Leone not to endorse tobacco product in future)
Some of the questions asked were: A member of parliament, in his speeches, has held you responsible for corrupting Indian morality. How do you deal with that? You would like to work with Aamir Khan, but would Aamir Khan like to work with you?
The anchor also asked her if she is the reason behind the growing porn watchers in India. (Also read: Milap Zaveri on why Sunny Leone’s Mastizaade is not vulgar)
Sunny answered the questions with wit and poise, garnering applause from Bollywood.

As a live broadcaster, you must be objective & rid yourself of all bias before an interview. Bhupendra’s every word reeks of a dodgy agenda.

Here’s hoping Mr Chaubey’s next interview explores something other than his own prejudice.
