While some biopics stay true to the person they embody, more often than not, many facets of the person's life have been ignored or whitewashed completely. What we get is a filtered version of the person's journey and the main aspects are not dealt with, as we would like them to.

Recently, a biopic in the form of an online series premiered on the digital platform ZEE5, based on Sunny Leone. Titled Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone, the series chronicles the journey of the most Googled celebrity, former adult star and current Bollywood actress - Sunny Leone or Karenjit Kaur.

What fails in many biopics is the level of transparency but with Karenjit Kaur, Sunny's journey is shown beautifully with no filters attached. The past and present are stitched together impeccably.
 
The series takes us on a journey. Sunny is interviewed by a journalist asking hard-hitting questions through which Sunny's life has been documented from when she was a teenager to her foray into the adult film industry and finally Bollywood.
 
The spotlight has also shined on her family and the troubles they had to face as well as their reaction to Sunny being an adult star. We also get to see how Sunny met the love of her life and husband Daniel Weber. The emotional factor of Karenjit Kaur is impactful and stays true throughout the series.

In biopics, it’s always someone else playing the reel-life character but with Karenjit Kaur, Sunny plays herself and who better to play the actress?! Sunny has been in those shoes and the vulnerability that comes out of her life journey strikes the right chord with viewers. With the overwhelmingly positive reviews in and the fans' reactions, Sunny's portrayal of herself is a plus point for the biopic.
 
This is why we believe that Karenjit Kaur is a biopic that truly does justice to Sunny Leone - the star.
