Sunny Leone, who is gearing up for the final season of the web series ‘Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story of Sunny Leone,’ says she often broke into tears while filming it as she had to go down the memory lane and revisit some dark chapters of her life.
“It was certainly not easy for me to revisit some of the chapter of my life that are dark, that I wanted to believe were a nightmare that which would get over soon. When my mother passed away, my father was diagnosed with cancer and within some time, he also passed away. I got married, got an invitation for an Indian TV show… there was too much happening very fast,” Leone said.
“Some of the situations were hurtful and I never ever wanted to visit those memories ever again. During the shooting, I broke down so badly. Seeing me breaking down like that, (my husband) Daniel Weber felt terrible and helpless because he cannot fix anything of those chapters of my life. Losing my parents was terrible,” the Indo-Canadian stat said.
Her web series will start streaming on ZEE5 OTT platform from Friday, reports The New Indian Express. “I think now I know the world of Bollywood a little better,” she said. “The first few films in my initial years were like being in a Bollywood boot camp. There is so much chaos but the whole system is like a well-oiled machine because somehow the job gets done here. When I came and saw that at the beginning of the day we plan something and that gets changed every now and then, I used to freak out.”
“But when I look at the whole matter in a calmer way now, we are executing everything that we plan initially. This place is fascinating. I learnt one very important thing here – ‘Thand pao, sab aaram se hota hai (Be cool, everything happens at its pace),’” said the star who is planning to start her first ever film project under her production house.
Asked about the most difficult thing that she has faced in India, Leone pointed out that it’s the hierarchy in the society. “For me, there is no hierarchy in my head because I do not come from that upbringing. But on a film set, such things are followed. It is the same in society also for me. Unless your actions say that you are a horrible person, you are equal to me — whether you are the lower end or the higher level of the hierarchy. I am not complaining about anything. It is just practice,” she concluded.
