Indo-Canadian adult films star-turned-actress Sunny Leone is known for her bold and sensuous image, but she hopes that the audience appreciates her acting talent more in her forthcoming film Jackpot.
Jackpot is a very story-driven movie. It's a fast-paced film that moves extremely fast. It's not just about being sexy for me in this movie. Hopefully, they (audience) get to see a different side where my acting is appreciated a little more," the 33-year-old said.
"I hope that happens. I hope when people watch Jackpot, they see that I did work really hard. I spent days and nights making sure that I learn these lines frontwards and backwards, or at least try," she added.
In the Kaizad Gustad directorial, Sunny will be seen opposite actor-producer Sachiin Joshi. The film, releasing Friday, also stars Naseeruddin Shah. Sunny, who made her Bollywood debut with 2012 film Jism 2 had a bad start. The film was a box office dud and her performance in the film was not appreciated by most critics. However, this is what our critic had to say about Sunny Leone's performance in the film...."The Bhatts have given Sunny Leone ample chances to prove herself as a good actress. And trust me, she did it! Many of us thought that a porn star can't do anything worth out of her bedroom. But, Ms Leone proves us wrong. She did a good job in Jism 2. She looks extremely hot and no other actress can beat her on the 'sex' quotient."
