Sunny Leone Biography
Sunny Leone is a former porn star and now she is a Bollywood actress and a model. However to many people’s disbelief, Sunny Leone is not her real name. It’s a stage name. Her real name is Karenjit Kaur Vohra.
Sunny Leone was born on May 13, 1981, to Sikh parents in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. Her father was born in Tibet and was raised in Delhi while her mother was from Sirmaur in Himachal Pradesh, India. Her parents enrolled Sunny in a Catholic school rather than the public school, as they thought it would be safer for her.
As a young kid, she would play street hockey with the boys. She was very athletic. She lost her virginity to a basketball player at the age of 16.
Sunny Leone’s Career
Sunny started working at a German bakery and soon she started working for Jiffy Lube, which is a subsidy of Shell Oil Company. She also worked at a tax and retirement firm. It was at this time, when a friend of hers, who was an exotic dancer, introduced her to Jay Allen, a photographer for the Penthouse magazine. This was the moment when Karenjitt Kaur Vohra became Sunny Leone. She instantly became famous after she appeared as “Pet of the Month” in March 2001 edition of Penthouse. After that, she appeared as a cover girl or in the issue of Hustler magazine, Cheri, Mystique Magazine, High Society, Swank, AVN Online, Leg World, Club International and Lowrider. She appeared alongside other big names like stars like Adriana Sage, Jenna Jameson, Jelena Jensen and Aria Giovanni.
In 2003, Sunny starred alongside Tera Patrick and Kyla Cole in a video called “Penthouse Pets in Paradise”. In 2005, she signed a three-year contract with Vivid Entertainments and started doing hardcore pornography. She strictly got herself a contract that she will do lesbian movies only for those three years. Her movies got her some accolades as well. In 2007, when she was to re-sign her contract, she agreed to do movies with men, but exclusively, her fiancé at the time, Matt Erikson. The movie was titled “Sunny Loves Matt”. The movie was a big hit and got nominated for major AVN Awards. Sunny Leone also got herself breast augmentation before the movie. They did another movie after that but then they separated ways. After that, she did movies with other actors like Tommy Gunn, Charles Dera, James Deen and Voodoo. Later on, she got herself another contract wherein she would do the movie exclusively with one guy only, named Daniel Webber.
In August 2009, Sunny Leone partnered with Daniel Webber and launched her own studio called Sunlust Pictures. She also started a website and business at the same time that runs under Leone L.L.C. Ever since Sunny Leone has been on different other media and iPhone apps, selling her non-nude images to such agencies. She started modeling for Vivid footwear collection and then soon afterward on Lingerie events. She also used this moment of her extreme popularity, to market some sex toys under her name as well. Later, in 2013, after many successful years in business, she announced her retirement from adult industry, forever.
Sunny Leone showed her interest in Bollywood but kept asking for $1 million for the movie. Many directors showed interest but they could not come to any negotiations due to her high fee demand. However, she did pose for PETA India campaign in 2013. She said “I believe that every single dog should be spayed and neutered. You don’t want to continue the cycle of homeless dogs or cats. And spaying and neutering also keep them healthy.”
Sunny Leone in Big Boss
Sunny was invited to the Indian television take of Big Brother, called Big Boss. She was entered in the house on Day 49. A few days later, Bollywood’s ace director, Mahesh Bhatt entered the house as a guest for a day. He approached Sunny and offered her a role in the movie, to which she readily accepted. Soon after, Jism 2 was launched, with Sunny Leone as the lead actress. The movie was commercially a success but not very well received. She did her second Bollywood movie thereafter, called “Ragini MMS2” but that got an average reception as well. She appeared as a lead actress or in a side role in many other movies after that. We can see the whole list in her filmography.
