In India’s conservative society, where even mention of sex raise eyebrows, porn stars would not even be considered as human beings worthy of respect. But Sunny Leone changed this.
Of course, her participation in television shows and movies spiked the TRP ratings, but also provoked the country’s moral policing brigade. However, as they say, actions speak louder than words. Sunny’s success in Bollywood was a revelation for Indian audiences: that porn stars can attract audience even on mainstream cinema, have excellent business acumen, support social causes, and most importantly, be role models. Most importantly, Sunny has shut down her naysayers - not with loud tantrums on social media as is the practice among many celebrities - but through her actions which proved that she is here to stay.
