Celina Jaitly’s experience of renting out her place in Mumbai to former porn star Sunny Leone and her husband Daniel Weber has turned out to be distasteful as the actress now swears not to rent off her apartment to any foreigner.
In a report published in Bollywoodhungama.com, Celina says, “I had to stay in a hotel with my two-and-a-half year-old twin sons because Sunny Leone and her husband wouldn’t vacate my place. They had no legal ground to keep possession of my home.”
Celina further adds that the couple had reduced the place to shambles.
She further says, “And to think that I rented them my home out of compassion. No one was willing to give accommodation to Sunny (Leone) and her insufferably arrogant and rude husband. I agreed. Only to regret my decision.”
It was the maidservant who informed Celina and her husband that the couple used only one room and left the rest of the home unused.
“What they’ve done to my house amounts to plunder and destruction. It’s a like a Tsunami has passed through my once-beautiful penthouse. All my antique furniture was dismantled and dumped on the open terrace to rot. Brand new teak shelves were ripped off. Holes were drilled into the walls to install CCT cameras without our permission. Even the refrigerator and washing machine were damaged. I have to say Ms. Leone and her husband maintained very low hygiene standards.”
When Sunny Leone’s two-year lease for her house ended, Celina expressed a desire to take re-possession of their home.
“Daniel is an unbelievably arrogant man. He sent my husband such rude emails. I don’t know Sunny Leone. But I felt sorry for her, for where she came from. And I generously rented our home to her and husband. Is this how they repay my generosity? Daniel Weber is a foreigner and yet he has been threatening and bullying me through his representatives,” says Celina.
“Sunny Leone and her husband have chalked out specific roles for themselves in Mumbai and the film industry. She plays the Good Cop. He plays the Bad Cop. Playing their games they’ve pissed off the entire entertainment industry in Mumbai. Would I ever be willing to offer accommodation to a foreigner again? I don’t think so. I am generous. But I am not stupid,” Celina signs off.
When prodded on Celina’s allegations, Daniel Weber said, “We don’t respond to garbage news put out by other celebs to bash us to gain self-publicity. Comments about me are baseless, and don’t concern me or Sunny. We are here to work and we are busier than ever. That’s all that matters.”
