The first look of the tell-all journey of India’s biggest porn-star-turned-Bollywood-siren is making all the right noise
Actor Sunny Leone is set to tell her real-life story in her biopic Karenjit Kaur - The Untold Story. The trailer of the web series that hit the YouTube channel Zee5, has taken the internet by storm.
This is not a movie but a web series that will be aired on Zee5 which promises to be as bold, brave, non-judgmental and unabashed about the former porn star’s life as she is. The show will give viewers a glimpse of different phases and struggles of her life. Sunny plays herself in the series and Rysa Saujani, 14, essays her younger version.
The two-minute trailer shows a beautiful depiction of Sunny and her bond with brother Sundeep and her father. It also shows Sunny's family in a financial crisis, which caused her to turn to the porn industry.
The video also shows her glamorous life as the Penthouse Pet in 2001.
The trailer ends with the controversial 2016 TV interview with journalist Bhupendra Chaubey, which was criticised for being sexist—the anchor was condemned for his questions and choice of words.
Karenjit Kaur - The Untold Story is directed by Aditya Datt and also features Raj Arjun, Karamvir Lamba, Bijay Jasjit Anand and Marc Buckner. The show premieres on July 16.
