Be it a prestigious project or more scenes in a multi-starrer, there are several reasons for actresses to be jealous of each other. And if there is competition from Sunny Leone- one of the most searched Google celebrities and someone who has already taken the film industry by storm with her sensuality or a controversial past, then the jealousy becomes even more intense. Hence, it comes as no surprise that many Bollywood actresses have been allegedly jealous of Sunny Leone in the past. Let us have a look at actresses who are jealous of Sunny.
Priyanka Chopra: One might wonder why Priyanka, who is not only one of the top actresses of Bollywood but also an international icon, will be jealous of Sunny Leone. However, it is true. The pretty actress was very upset when she had to share item girl credit with former adult star Sunny Leone during the release of Shootout At Wadala. TheBarfi! actress was very angry when Sunny was more in the limelight during the film’s promotions and her sizzling item song ‘Laila’ got more praise and appreciation tha Priyanka’s song ‘Babli Badmaash’ from the same movie. In fact, the pretty actress had gone on record to say that she would like it if her song be called a special appearance and not an item song. Well it sure seems like jealousy to us.
Bipasha Basu: The Bong bombshell Bipasha Basu was replaced by Sunny Leone not only as the lead actress of Jism’s sequel, Jism 2, but also in Shootout At Wadala. This probably infuriated the leggy lass. It is said that Bipasha was not happy with the fact that the former adult star Sunny Leone has taken her place in Jism 2. In an interview to Zoom, when the sultry actress was asked that what tips would she give to Sunny Leone, she said that since Jism is all about body, Sunny will be very good with her body because she is not conscious of it. Hence, she accepted that she could not give her any tips. Her comment was criticised by industrywallahs, who felt she was insinuating that Jism only requires body show and no acting, and Sunny Leone would be very comfortable as she is a porn star. This led the gossipmongers to wonder if Bipasha was jealous of Sunny Leone.
Sherlyn Chopra: The sex siren has openly displayed her jealousy for the former adult star Sunny Leone. This happened when the filmmakers of Jism 2 had chosen Sunny Leone and a fan asked Sheryln why she wasn’t considered for the role. Sherlyn had then attacked Sunny and tweeted, “With due respect 2 her, I guess her line of work has aroused quite a bit of intrigue around her amongst the youth in India.” She then went a step forward and asked her followers who they think would be the better actress in Jism 2. She tweeted, “Opinion time! Between Ms Leone n myself, who do you think would or could do complete justice to Jism 2 in terms of erotica n screen presence?” ‘Those who’ve vouched 4 my erotica n screen presence most definitely hv out-numbered those who think otherwise! Thx Youngistan(young @ heart)!’ she added later. Sunny Leone chose to ignore Sherlyn, and tweeted: ‘Just got done shooting all the dialog for scene number 1. Fun day for me!!! Heading to a nice dinner! For everyone asking!!!!! @jism2 starts shooting April 1st 2012.
Poonam Pandey: A sex siren who is known to shed clothes without any inhibitions, Poonam Pandey apparently takes Sunny Leone as her competition and might be a tad bit jealous of her. When a reporter from Bollywoodlife.com compared her with Sunny Leone, she lost her cool. She said that she does not like being compared to a porn star and said her movie Nasha deals with emotions and not just ooh and aaah. Her comments had left gossip mongers buzzing with speculations that maybe the Nasha actress was jealous of Sunny Leone for getting plump projects and popularity.
Mahie Gill: The pretty actress has managed to stay away from controversies. However, when her movie Gang of Ghost released on the same day as Sunny Leone-starrer horrexRagini MMS 2, the two actresses were pitted against each other. Since both the actresses are known as sex sirens, there were rumours about competitiveness and a rivalry between the two actresses. There were speculations that Mahie was allegedly jealous of the former adult actress due to her popularity. However, Mahie put all the rumours to rest when she told the media that Sunny is a beautiful girl and that she got a chance to work with her in a film with her called Tina & Lolo. However, she could not make time as she was doing something else. Was she really busy or did she fear the competition?
