After being evicted from Bigg Boss, pornstar Sunny Leone targeted contestant Amar Upadhyay, alleging that he kissed her hand and picked her up against her wishes, while carrying out fun tasks assigned to
Housemates on the reality show.
In an interview to a prominent newspaper, the pornstar from Canada mounted a scathing attack on the Indian actor and claimed, "It's the first time in my entire career that I've had to tell a man (Amar) more than once
not to be a certain way.
That's why I didn't exactly know how to handle the situation as it was coming, other than talking to him as an adult. In my real life, no one comes near me or no one even tries to get fresh or do anything – it just doesn't
Amar Upadhyay's publicist Dale Bhagwagar clarified that the actor's ‘acts' of kissing Leone on her hand or picking her up during a rain dance on the show, "were strictly part of the ‘entertainment tasks' given to the
Housemates on Bigg Boss."
Replying to Sunny's bizarre claims, he said, "Sunny Leone a respected pornstar! She should be careful before uttering such words against a family man and an actor who has been admired and adored on Indian
television for his role of the righteous Mihir Virani in Kyonki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, which even propelled him as a superstar on television with a huge fan following."
"Sunny is planning to enter Bollywood. Showing such disrespect for a family man and massacring the reputation of an Indian actor even before she officially signs her first Bollywood movie, could reflect badly on her
and scare off most reputed Indian actors and producers," the publicist pointed out.
Indeed, Sunny seems to have committed professional hara-kiri. India is a country of great morality and culture and this frivolous accusation could make her career in Bollywood an uphill task now.
It can be noted here that Bigg Boss co-host Sanjay Dutt, who had rightfully come to Amar's support during one of the elimination rounds earlier, was said to be planning to work with Sunny.
But the rumours
have been denied. Quoting a source, a prominent newspaper clarified, "Sanju wouldn't be comfortable working with Leone and has no interest in signing her on whatsoever."
The other Bigg Boss co-host Salman Khan, who was said to be considering Sunny for a film, hasn't announced anything; while Mahesh Bhatt is yet to officially sign her for Jism 2, a movie he discussed with her on
entering the Bigg Boss House as a guest last month.
