While the closed-door shoot at Splitsvilla did not accommodate fans, Sunny Leone worked her charms on both the contestants and the crew. Here's a sample:
“I’ve met a lot of celebrities, they come with an attitude, but Sunny Leone is very down to earth. She’s one of my role models,” says Scarlett Rose, 22, runner-up of Miss Goa 2012 and a bikini model based in Mumbai.
“It’s not easy to be a bikini model; people think you're a porn artist. When I heard that Sunny Leone was hosting the show, I felt that here was somebody who would understand my line of work,” she says.
Juhi Parmar, winner, Big Boss 5, feels that Sunny Leone’s sexy image is not her only asset.
“Sunny is glamorous, beautiful, confident, and dances well. Aren’t these the qualities most A-list stars demonstrated when they first came into the industry? Many learned acting along the way. I’d say it’s the same for Sunny. She’ll get there,” she says.
Mahesh Bhatt remembers Sunny Leone as a dedicated learner who did not leave things to chance and came to the sets with her lines prepared.
