Bengaluru: Actor Sunny Leone's past in the world of adult movies precedes her everywhere and this is no exception. 

The actor will be seen playing Veeramadevi, the historical warrior queen in the upcoming movie of the same name. While the actor has gone all out to train for the role with mastering sword fighting and martial arts with the professional trainers in Mumbai, activists are objecting to her playing the role. 

Threatening a fate like the controversial Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie Padmaavat, Kannada Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene alleged that casting Sunny in the movie was an insult to a historical figure. According to a report published in Hindustan Times, a few of them even slashed their wrists to show their allegiance to this cause.

 The group’s youth wing president R Harish said, “Leone is popular as a porn star and such a person should not play a historical character, who is not only an icon of Kannada but also someone who built many temples.”

The activists have also vowed that they will create issues in the show in Bengaluru on November 3. The organisation also warned that they have bought at least 230 tickets for the movie to disrupt the screening.
