Former porn star turned Bollywood movie actor Sunny Leone is one of India’s most searched people online. In a country that’s coy about discussing sex and sensuality, Ms Leone is a controversial figure. Some have accused her of destroying Indian culture, even as her videos and movies attract millions of viewers. Ms Leone was born in Canada to Indian parents and the whole family later moved to the United States where she started working in the adult entertainment industry. The BBC’s Yogita Limaye spoke to her for the 100 Women season about her decision to move to India and how she feels about her porn star past.
Filmed and edited by Jaltson Akkanath Chummar and Vishnu Vardhan, produced by Suranjana Tewari

    porn is not a respectable business

  24. emotionscomeandgo on December 8, 2016: (Reply)

    She isn’t a slut. She just made her choices for whatever reason. She was
    always promiscuous… she lost her virginity at 15. She was happy with who
    she was. She claimed to be Bisexual as well.

    She usually had sex with her husband 90% of the time on camera as well.

    Whatever makes her happy.

    The Indian Media is so fucked up. They were the ones that kept screaming
    the word PORN… P…O…R…N a term not really used by illiterate masses.
    They were the ones who gave her household name status.

    Hypocrites if they claim she’s corrupting youth. My ass. With all these
    rapes, disrespect towards women, and the 1.5B population India has
    ……Indians were always HORNY DOGS… even before Sunny.

    slutty. You have a slutty image. end of conversation.

    U had 100 women to find from all over the world and decided to give a spot
    to spot to a Pornstar who was never that accomplished and an actor who
    never won an Oscar? Should have given it to Ai Uehara instead!

  39. CuteSuperGeek on December 9, 2016: (Reply)

    Awkward moment when people from India are SLUT SHAMING a pornstar, whilst
    they condemn women they are raped and does nothing about their rapists.
    If you give your body willingly you’re a slut, however if you are raped,
    you’re still a slut. This isn’t even double standard or hypocrisy. It’s
    pure ignorance, and may they all burn in hell. Men in Indian do not even
    deserve to be called men, but mere peasants.

    conservative Indian community in India

    We love and respect you sunny.. for being a strong and successful woman..?

  50. Britney Waldron on December 10, 2016: (Reply)

    I think we live in both a weird and very backwards time. All the things
    your parent’s growing up told you to NEVER to do, women are making millions
    of dollars doing it. Porn Star becomes a famous Bollywood Actress. Former
    strippers in the USA, becoming film/tv stars.

    (Setting up my camera and tripod)… jk
