There ‘still’ is struggle to find good work: Sunny Leone

Becoming a target of social media trolls isn’t new for Sunny Leone, who got drawn into a controversy earlier this month when filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma wrote a distasteful tweet about her on International Women’s Day. But the actress has a smart way to tackle haters — just block them.
Asked if social media trolls and negativity on such platforms affect her, Sunny said over e-mail from Mumbai: “No. Because I have the block button. I don’t give two hoots about it. I know my following has been by my side for many years, and I love them for it. The haters just get blocked!”Varma landed himself in hot soup after his controversial comment: “I wish all the women in the world give men as much happiness as Sunny Leone gives.” The comment triggered a storm of protests on Twitter, and even attracted complaints against Varma. Sunny, a former Indo-Canadian porn star who entered Indian showbiz via a stint in the Bigg Boss 5 reality TV show in 2012, says she cannot do anything about stereotypical perceptions about her in the industry. “I can’t do anything about stereotypes. That’s just how the world works everywhere,” she said.he 35-year-old actress has been part of the Hindi film industry for over five years and has starred in nine films, apart from cameos. Her journey began with erotic thriller Jism 2, which paved the way for her to feature in movies like Jackpot, Ek Paheli Leela and Mastizaade.
Is it a conscious decision to choose selected scripts in a year? “I definitely try to make the right decision based on what’s on the table. It’s just all about that. My team and myself decide what’s best for the brand. Sometimes it’s good, and sometimes it’s not,” said Sunny, who was born to Sikh parents in Canada. She says “there still is” struggle to find good work. “Everyone has their own journey and mine is different in its own way,” she said.
