Sunny Leone has hit the headlines. Pro-Kannada activists on Monday protested against the casting of Sunny Leone in a multi-lingual film Veeramadevi. Kannada Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene alleged that casting Sunny in the movie was an insult to a historical figure and warned of a Padmaavat like protest if she was not replaced. According to a report published in Hindustan Times, a couple of youth also cut their hands with blades for the protest to show the seriousness. 

 

The group’s youth wing president R Harish said it was not right to have Sunny Leone play a historical character, who had supported the cause of Hindus. “Leone is popular as a porn star and such a person should not play a historical character, who is not only an icon of Kannada but also someone who built many temples,” he said. He also added that Veeramadevi had built many temples in Karnataka and it would hurt religious sentiments of people if Sunny played the role. The activists have also vowed that they will create issues in the show in Bengaluru on November 3. 

 

 

“We have bought at least 230 tickets for the performance, and we will disrupt it if she doesn’t stay away from the movie,” Harish said. “We are not against anything else, we just want her to quit this movie. Else, we will also have to protest like people in Rajasthan did against the movie Padmaavat,” Harish added. 

 

Well, this is not the first time as similar sort of protests occurred when KRV Yuva Sena protested against an event featuring Sunny Leone on New Year’s Eve. That programme was cancelled after the state government didn’t provide security.

The fact that moviemakers chose Leone for a historical character is itself mock worthy. Surely, they didnt want to promote history but the weird combination of her playing the historical woman.

And Leone is anyways looking like a fat aunty, completely unfit for a female warrior.
