Furious Alia Bhatt & Anushka Sharma Speak Up For Sunny Leone

"Disgusting and sexist" questions posed to Indo-Canadian adult-film star and Bollywood actress Sunny Leone in a TV interview have left Hindi film celebrities enraged.

Sunny, who made inroads into Indian showbiz with a past season of reality show "Bigg Boss" and then landed a role in Bollywood with "Jism 2", is busy these days promoting her new film "Mastizaade" directed by Milap Zaveri.

Dia Mirza:

He asks the same question for 20 minutes. Because she doesn't satisfy him with the response he's looking for. #Respect

Gaurav Kapur:

As a live broadcaster, you must be objective and rid yourself of all bias before an interview. Bhupendra's every word reeks of a dodgy agenda. Full marks to Sunny Leone for the grace she showed. Most would've walked out of that cringe fest of an interview.

Milap Zaveri:

She is a rockstar! My #MastizaadiSunny Love her!

Shruti Seth:

A rockstar being interviewed by a misogynistic idiot. You owned this one @SunnyLeone with your grace and poise. Bravo!

Shabinaa Khan:

Sick that a journalist @bhupendrachaube should conduct such a disgusting, patronising, sexist interview @sunnyleone

Mini Mathur:

Yes and such stupid questions! He is so googly eyed and patronising while @SunnyLeone holds her own so beautifully

During one such promotional TV interview, CNN-IBN anchor Bhupendra Chaubey posed some questions, which Sunny tackled quite sportingly.

Some of the questions asked were: There are lots of married women who look at Sunny Leone as a threat to their husbands, do you not care about all this? You would like to work with Aamir Khan, but would Aamir Khan like to work with you? A member of parliament, in his speeches, has held you responsible for corrupting Indian morality. How do you deal with that?

While a number of Bollywood celebrities spoke up for her, this is what Alia Bhatt tweeted in support of Sunny Leone.

She tweeted, "That was literally NOT an interview.. Just hyper-opinionated statements with a question mark at the end!!! No Grace? Chivalry? Ridiculous!"

Anushka Sharma wrote, "This downright distasteful interview shows d journalists intellect & lack of basic human respect & nothing else.kudos @SunnyLeone."
