Sunny Leone failed to keep her appointment with what was perhaps the most glorious chapter of her career in the entertainment business: the premiere of the documentary Mostly Sunny on her rise from an adult-content star to Bollywood actress at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
The 2-hour documentary directed by ace-photographer Dilip Mehta was apparently done with the full approval and participation of Sunny and her husband Daniel Weber. But now the documentary seems to have caused some amount of heartburn in the Leone camp.
Says a source from Toronto, “The premiere of the Sunny Leone documentary was to be held on Sunday night at the TIFF at 10.30 pm. Dilip Mehta and his sister Deepa Mehta had even organized a lunch in honour of Sunny Leone which she was to attend along with her husband. But she didn’t turn up for the lunch or the premiere in the evening.”
When I touched base with Sunny and her husband Daniel they were in New York attending a family function. Says Daniel, “Sunny had a prior commitment. Sunday was a very very important day for her nephew (Daniel’s nephew)’s bar mitzvah. This was planned one year in advance.”
But the grand Toronto premiere of Sunny’s documentary was also planned well in advance. Why wasn’t Dilip Mehta and his team informed that Sunny won’t be able to attend?
