Sunny Leone confirms she won’t be attending Bengaluru New Year bash after police deny permission

Bengaluru: Actress Sunny Leone on Tuesday said that she will not attend the New Year bash in the city after the police denied permission to the organisers.

“Since the police of Bengaluru have publicly said that they will not be able to ensure mine, and all who attend, safety for my New Year’s event, my team and I feel, safety of the people should always come first. Therefore, I cannot attend. God bless and I wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year,” Sunny tweeted.

She later added: “To all those who protested and to all those who supported, always remember, never allow others to speak and choose for you.

“We are denying permission for Sunny Leone’s musical show on December 31 night to maintain law and order and prevent any untoward incident in the city,” Kumar told reporters in Bengaluru.

Sunny was supposed to perform at the Manyata Tech Park in the city suburbs. However, the city police chief said it would not be possible to provide enough security at the venue as the entire force would be on duty across the city on that night.

“In view of a directive from the Karnataka High Court on Friday to ensure peaceful New Year celebrations and prevent untoward incidents in the city, we will not be able to deploy enough force at one place at the risk of other areas,” he said.

Meena Kumari biopic: Not Vidya Balan or Madhuri Dixit, Sunny Leone may be cast as veteran actress

For a long time now, there have been rumours doing the rounds about an upcoming biopic based on Bollywood’s “tragedy queen” and veteran actress Meena Kumari.

First, it was reported that Vidya Balan might play the Pakeezah star in the film. Then there were speculations that Madhuri Dixit has been approached for the role. Now, according to a report by The Bombay Times, actress Sunny Leone might play the legendary actress in the biopic.

Director of the film, Karan Razdan — known for films like Diljale (1995) and Deewane (2000) — told Bombay Times that of all the actresses that he has approached, Leone was the most enthusiastic about doing the film.

“I think the only one who is courageous enough and said, ‘When can we start this film?’ has been Sunny Leone. I have narrated it to Madhuri and Vidya but it didn’t work out for one reason or the other. Sunny came along, she said she had heard about this film and wanted me to narrate it. I met her at her house, had a long narration. I don’t know… She is not the ideal choice, I would say. But she was the most enthusiastic about doing the role. I guess, she also saw this as her big chance,” says Razdan.

According to Razdan, when he had approached Balan for the role, she declined saying she wants to do a less-serious role. Balan’s latest release Tumhari Sulu has earned her numerous accolades along with commercial and critical acclaim.

Working with Shah Rukh Khan was a dream come true': Sunny Leone

Sunny Leone hoped to work with Shah Rukh Khan since the beginning of her Bollywood journey and the actress recently shot a song in Raees with the superstar. Sunny says she found it difficult to control her emotions.

Sunny will be seen shaking a leg with the Dilwale actor in the reprise version of the 1980 chartbuster ‘Laila O Laila‘ in the film.

The Mastizaade actress feels proud to have worked with Shah Rukh, as she had wished for the opportunity “every single day”.

“Working with Shah Rukh was unbelievable, it was a dream come true. When you wish for something every single day and then you get a chance, just the offer to work with somebody like him, it was a very proud moment for me,” she told PTI in an exclusive interview.

Even though the 34-year-old actress has made a mark for herself in Bollywood with several films to her credit, she got very emotional when she saw herself with Shah Rukh in one frame.

“I was the happiest ever. To see myself and Shah Rukh on the screen, in one frame, that was the first time I saw, the first shot, it was very emotional for me. I was like ‘I have make-up on, control your emotions’. I was constantly saying, ‘Oh God! My first shot with him, thank you’.”

Usually bold and confident in her demeanour, Sunny, was a bundle of nerves when she met the 50-year-old actor on the movie’s set. The Ragini MMS 2 star said that she behaved like a “dork” in front of him.

“He is very nice, respectful, and professional. I am such a dork, I get shy. I am like that person who doesn’t know what to talk when that person is standing in front of you. You admire them, look upto them and you think ‘they have accomplished so much’, and then they’re in front of you and you just don’t know what to say,” the actress said.
