Sunny Leone says that whether or not she gets to work with Aamir Khan in a film or not, she will always remain a fan of the superstar, who has recently come out in support of the actress.
Sunny, in fact, is grateful that a string of Bollywood celebrities, especially Aamir, took her side following a controversial interview, which was condemned by many for being “sexist”.
The “Jism 2” actress has herself said the interview was “not right”.
Asked about how she felt about the support of Aamir, who has said that he will be happy to work with her, Sunny told IANS: “I’m still digesting what he said… I’m still in shock. Whether we work together or not I’ll still always watch his film and I will always be a fan.”
After Sunny’s interview on a news channel, where an anchor asked her that while she may want to work with Aamir, would he like to work with her, the “Taare Zameen Par” star praised the Indo-Canadian adult film star for tackling it all with “grace and dignity”.
“And yes Sunny, I will be happy to work with you. I have absolutely no problems with your ‘past’, as the interviewer puts it. Stay blessed. Cheers. Aamir,” he had tweeted.
It left Sunny quite thrilled.
Also, garnering support from various other celebrities like Rishi Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Vir Das and Sushant Singh Rajput, made her feel “good”.
“I think what people saw in that video was (reflective) of what I might have been feeling… of the manner in which the interview was taken.”
She added: “I did feel it (the interview) wasn’t right and was wrong… But I did not know how people are going to react. They have been so nice and so kind that they (celebrities) are all on your side,” she said.
The interview was done with CNN IBN anchor Bhupendra Chaubey, who posed uncomfortable questions to Sunny about her past.
She is currently busy promoting her film “Mastizaade”, a sex comedy, which is directed by Milap Zaveri and is slated to hit the screens on January 29.
