Adult film actress Sunny Leone is all set to feature in a her own biopic alongside her husband Daniel Webber, which is reportedly going to be an honest-tell all story about her - from her initial meeting with Webber, love, X-rated films to her eventual journey back to India to do a more sedate film called Jism 2 for Pooja Bhatt.

Adult film actress Sunny Leone is all set to feature in a her own biopic alongside her husband Daniel Webber, which is reportedly going to be an honest-tell all story about her – from her initial meeting with Webber, love, X-rated films to her eventual journey back to India to do a more sedate film called Jism 2 for Pooja Bhatt.

While the husband-wife team will lead the cast, reports in DNA indicate some of the other roles will be done by none other than their real-life close friends, making it a real friends and fun kind of movie. However, what has not been mentioned is whether it really will be a no-holds barred biopic in which Sunny will take an up-close-and-personal look at her own past in sex films that she has been a part of (with her husband) or whether it will be a more sensitised version where all mention of the adult movie past is erased. Considering she will be eyeing the Indian market, the possibility of a more sensitive version is likely.

The Sunny Leone biopic does not seem have acquired a title yet, but it is likely to be directed by ‘Tere Bin Laden’ director Abhishek Sharma, according to DNA. The movie is a quickie by all estimates and is expected to be released later this year.

Aside from her past as a porn star, Sunny Leone has acted in a number of risque movies in Bollywood, after her debut in India in reality show Bigg Boss way back in 2011, but aside from the initial attempts that met with success, her movies have not been able to generate the kind of interest that was widely expected by analysts. First of all, she has not been able to convince the critics, who keep on giving her terrible reviews and more than that, she has not been able to convince the theatre-goers to come and watch her on the big screen. However, the interest in her on the Net has been constantly sky-high, which has constantly kept her in the news.

Exactly what Sunny Leone has in mind with her biopic, as such, is unclear, but indubitably the woman has a mind of her own and will be looking to make a mark in Bollywood’s extremely competitive environment where she has already established herself as go-to actress for any project that has a substantial role for a woman who is mostly under-dressed or mouths sexual innuendo.

Sunny Leone has acted in these movies in Bollywood: Jackpot, Ragini MMS 2, Ek Paheli Leela and others, but none of them came even close to the success of Jism 2. Sunny has also acted in a few item numbers for various films.
