12 Celebrities who made news: Sunny Leone

There was seldom a day which passed by without these celebs hogging the limelight. Here’s what they did

Indo-Canadian porn star, Sunny Leone’s participation in the previous season of ‘Bigg Boss’ was supposed to help her make inroads into the Hindi film industry. Her debut film, cleverly packaged as Bollywood’s first erotica, managed to create a lot of pre-release buzz.

While ‘Jism 2’ might not have set the cash registers ringing at the Box Office, it definitely marked the launch of Sunny’s career. Her heavy breathing in the film did not get any critic’s endorsement but it hasn’t stopped the offers from pouring in.

Sunny Leone has already been signed in for ‘Ragini MMS 2,’ a sequel to last year’s sleeper hit. She has signed a three-film deal with Alumbra Entertainment. The subjects are being finalised between Alumbra and the actress at the moment.

Sunny Leone also emerged as the 'Most Dangerous Celebrity' in the Indian cyber space this year, followed by Katrina Kaif; according to a new study. In the Indian ranking this year, Leone displaced Kaif, who owned this title in the 2011 edition of this annual research. Rumour has it that the actress has also been approached to host the show ‘India’s Sexiest Bachelor’.
