Amidst all the hullabaloo, what we wondered was whether Sunny Leone's interview, just a publicity gimmick to attract audiences' attention for her upcoming movie, Mastizaade!
Sunny Leone's interview with Bhupendra Chaubey has gone viral on social media. The topic, is filled with comments, likes and shares about the issue.

India's Most Googled Personality
Sunny Leone, is India's most Googled person of the year 2015. The actress overtook the PM, top Bollywood stars & cricketers of the country.
Just ten day before the release of Mastizaade, Sunny Leone took the movie promotions to the next step. It has successfully reached a wider audiences now.
Sunny Leone, Tusshar Kapoor and Vir Das starrer Mastizaade, is all set to hit the theatres on January 29, 2016.
Bhupendra Chaubey, is now at the receiving end of social media justice, as people are constantly spewing venom against him.
Celebrities believe that any publicty is good publicity as long as it serves the purpose, that is to create a 'trend' online. People would start gossiping about the issue and spread the word across all by themselves, for free.
This in turn, would reach a wider audience and stroke their 'Facebook Warrior' emotions through their comments & shares, and of course, they end up watching the movie, as the interview touched their feelings & emotions.
We never know, if the interview of Sunny Leone in CNN-IBN 'The Hot Seat' was really scripted or was it genuine?, but it surely has created a free market for Sunny's upcoming movie, Mastizaade.
Even people who didn't watch the trailer of Mastizaade, will now watch the trailer and also search for its songs online.
Generating publicity just before a films release is nothing new to Bollywood at all, it has happened in the past, and will certainly happen in the future as well.
A leading daily Bollywoodlife exclusively had an interview with Daniel Weber, and Daniel, rejected claims that the interview was scripted. He was quoted as saying,
"I think it's trending because people feel that everyone has a voice today and people should speak up. They saw something and heard something that they felt was really unjust and they are speaking up. It's not like she told people to speak. You don't have to love her, you don't have to hate her but you form you opinion after the interview.
Daniel Weber continued as,
"This is not a publicity thing, I mean who wants to be put in a position like she was put it. This actually completely caught us off-guard; we knew nothing about how this interview would happen. We don't gain anything from this. Its only the awareness, people should act civil towards other human beings."
