By her own admission, a lot has changed for Sunny Leone in the last few months after she held her own in her (in)famous TV interview earlie...
Sunny Leone: One-night stand is perfectly okay if you’re single and safe
How did you feel when a film came to you with its title as One Night Stand?
The director Jasmine D’Souza’s husband Tony D’Souza came to me with the script. I have worked with him before, so I trusted him on the subject and did not go by the title. I knew he wasn’t going to make it look shady. And when Jasmine narrated the story to me, I thought it was really interesting.
Was it tough shooting for intimate scenes with your co-star Tanuj Virwani?
I think there is a common misconception that it is one big party to shoot such scenes. Shooting for hot scenes is a very systematic shot-by-shot process. And Tanuj is a respectable young man. We talked through everything we were going to do. And the scenes were shot by a woman director, Jasmine and I think that makes a huge difference on how scenes were shot in terms of aesthetics.
So what's your take on one-night stands?
If you are single and your physical emotions take over your mind and as long as you are safe, it is okay. It is mutual consent between a man and a woman. What they want to do behind the closed doors is none of my business. But I do think that when people, who are married or are in a committed relationship, have a one-night stand, there are a lot more people affected than just the two in question.
People had a certain idea about you, which changed post your recent (in)famous TV interview. How did all that happen?
Don't remind me that again! I was fidgeting the whole time and waiting to get out of the interview. After the camera stopped rolling, I told the journalist, “Sir, you will be going back to your family after this.” But he thought the questions he asked me were absolutely okay. So what can I do? I was very upset about it but I saw my fans supporting me. People started to respect me as a human being because before that, they didn’t think I was a human. A lot of things changed after that.
Post that interview, even Aamir Khan came forward and said that he wants to work with you…
I know (laughs). I was shocked. I was happy with one message from him, but then there were two.
So can we expect a movie with Aamir?
I have met him, but nothing has happened on the movie front yet. At this moment, I am enjoying the fact that I got to meet someone I have always wanted to meet.
