In a nation like India, where people still shy away from the word 'sex' and talk about their 'sanskar' and 'sanskriti', it wouldn't be an easy job for Sunny Leone (porno star) to make a special place in the hearts of the Indians. Ms Leone is currently very excited about her upcoming Bollywood debut Jism 2, that is all set to release tomorrow. But, will the citizens of our nation accept her as an Indian actress with heart full of love and respect?
Many believe that Sunny Leone's porn star status has given her the way for a big Bollywood break. When the news broke out that a porn star will be entering the Hindi film industry, the Bhatts had to face extreme criticisms from the entire nation. Sunny Leone too was slammed by people from every nook and corner of the nation.
Here is the list of a few protests that were held against Sunny Leone:
1) IAAF had objected to the introduction of porn star Sunny Leone in the reality show Bigg Boss 5 on Colors. Reports revealed that an interest in pornography was suddenly increased after Sunny Leone came to India. Since people were unaware of who she was, they got interested. Although her identity in the show was not revealed publicly, people searched her on net and got to know. Reports also said that teenagers were affected the most. Sunny Leone had triggered an inadvertent interest in an industry considered taboo in the Indian culture. Not just teenagers, even families too had faced troubles.
2) Protest against Sunny Leone in Amritsar - Activists of Bhagwan Valmiki Shakti Sena shouted slogans against porn star Sunny Leone and burned the poster of Jism 2 in Amritsar. The protesters were against the vulgarity shown in the film.
2) A PIL has been slammed against Sunny Leone in the Allahabad High Court. The PIL was filed by Rakesh Nayayik, a resident of Varanasi. It seeks a stay on the release of the film, and has challenged the provisions of the law which define the powers of the Censor Board in India.
Stran: I wonder why Indians pay Rs 200 to watch Sunny leone with her clothes on.You can view her in blue films, for free.
Vedant: Bring people like Sunny Leone in main stream media in the name of modern, progressive and also lament and cry about rising number of rapes.
Tony: This is our INDIAN CULTURE? Getting a PORN STAR to act.
Ron: Mahesh and Pooja Bhatt are happy that they are getting some cheap publicity. So, they are casting a porn star in a Bollywood film.
Nisha: Why a porn star in Indian film industry? Have the Bhatts gone mad? Weren't there any other actress in Bollywood?
Virnda: Throw Sunny Leone out of India!!!!!
Avni: Mahesh Bhatt should give something better to the country than Sunny Leone. Shame on him and Puja Bhatt.

In our conservative society, where porn movies, nudity and sex acts are even a taboo to discuss, we wonder if our people would ever accept a porn star acting in Hindi movies? What say guys?
