Toronto-based journalist and filmmaker Dilip Mehta has produced a documentary on the ‘Baby Doll’ of Bollywood, Sunny Leone, however, news in the grapevine suggests��the actress has refused to attend the premiere due to her displeasure over certain aspects of the film. Titled��’Mostly Sunny’, the documentary had its world premiere at the 41st Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), which the ‘Ragini MMS 2’ (2014) superstar chose to avoid, given that at the time she was in New York, a short flight away.
According to��Hindustan Times, Mehta confirmed, “Days ahead of the premiere, she called me and demanded that I delete the stray topless clips that I have used from her adult films. That is rather surprising coming from Sunny, who claims on camera that she does not give a damn about what people think of her past as an adult entertainer. Sunny�۪s absence from TIFF has piqued everybody�۪s interest…Had she attended the premiere in a festival as big as this one, it would have only earned her a great deal of mileage.”
The 35-year-old almost returned to New York after her film ‘Jackpot’ (2013) failed at the box office, however, it is with her item number ‘Baby Doll’ in ‘Ragini MMS 2’ that luck fell in the starlet’s favour. The documentary is said to channel Leone’s journey from her childhood living with her conservative Sikh family��in Sarnia, Ontario to her shift to Los Angeles, emerging as one of the biggest adult movie stars in the world and her subsequent mainstream movie career breakthrough in Mumbai��.
���There is absolutely nothing exploitative in the film,� asserts Mehta. ���If anything, ‘Mostly Sunny’ paints a portrait of a beautiful and intelligent woman who has lived life on her own terms.�
