Looks like Sunny Leone has become a trend-setter of sorts for her colleagues in the adult entertainment profession. Shanti Dynamite who is also famous in the adult film industry has taken a liking to Bollywood and is all set to make her debut in director Rupesh Paul's movie Savita Barbie.
Paul was apparently auditioning a number of girls for three non-Indian characters. And then, co-incidentally, he bumped into Shanti. He had read about her wanting to work with producer Ekta Kapoor and he immediately signed her up for the movie. Shanti's profession did not matter for Paul, who said he did not look at it "as a bad thing." However, Rupesh also said that Shanti needs to work on her diction and acting to get fully prepared for the role.
Playboy girl Shanti Dynamite came into news when she alleged that adult star Sunny Leone had copied her poster for her song 'Babydoll' and that it was very upsetting. She said, "A lot of people contacted me and said you should see the new Sunny Leone song 'Babydoll' for the Ragini MMS 2 movie, she copied a concept of yours. I saw that and was shocked."
"I was like, 'Oh my god people do such things!' And it was very upsetting for me because for someone to use someone else's concept to gain popularity is not good. That particular poster was a replica of something I had done previously. That picture is right there and I had done that picture sometime ago. Then the same concept was done for her poster," Shanti said.
