The Jism 2 star said she sought acting tips from Naseeruddin Shah from the day one of the shooting.

“I am in awe of him. He is one of the finest actors that India has produced. He is such a good actor that when you stand next to him,your performance also improves. I asked him to correct me whenever possible but he just laughed,” she said.

In “Jackpot”,Sunny Leone has shot opposite her manager husband Daniel Weber,who is playing a cameo.


“Kaizad sir was looking for a man who is from abroad and has a good body. As he is accompanying me on the sets,he looked at him and decided to cast him. That’s how he came onboard,” she said.
