The actor has been speaking about her film, Kennedy, directed by Anurag Kashyap. It will have its world premiere on Wednesday, out of competition, in the Midnights Section of the festival.

Her Bigg Boss entry in 2011
On Tuesday, the actor shared a snippet of an interview with Deadline on Instagram in which she spoke about her tumultuous entry into Bigg Boss in 2011. In the video, Sunny said, “I was in the adult entertainment industry and Big Brother India, which is called Bigg Boss, called and said, ‘We want you to be on the show.’ I said to [Daniel], he was then my boyfriend, now my husband, ‘You’re out of your mind, I’m not going to India. They’ll hate me.’ I’ve already gone through so much hate within that community. At that moment, I said, ‘No way, you’re out of your mind. I’m not doing it.'”
She added, “But they were extremely serious about having me on and they kept being really persistent. They even sent me a Powerpoint presentation, saying ‘This is our show, this is our viewership.’ Something you wouldn’t send to an actor, especially me. I went on the show and as each week passed, I figured something good must be happening. But right before getting on the show, there were a lot of hurdles. There were death threats, bomb threats. The CEO of Viacom, he resigned because of this pressure.”
Sunny entered the competition as a wild card entry and stayed on Bigg Boss 5 for seven weeks. She made her Bollywood debut with Pooja Bhatt’s Jism 2 (2012) and since then has appeared in films like Ragini MMS 2 (2014), Ek Paheli Leela (2015), Tera Intezaar (2017).
