As rightly pointed out in the trailer of ZEE5 original Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone, the actress has been showered with an equal amount of love and hate. Sunny journeyed from a unibrow-ed middle-class girl to a sensuous adult movie star who made an entire generation crazy about her photos, videos, songs, and films. The web series narrates the unheard and lesser-known story of India’s Most Googled celebrity star who has taken bricks and bats, laurels and accolades and highs and lows all in her stride.
An embodiment of self-empowerment, the unmaking of Karenjit and the making of a brand Sunny is one twisted tale of a girl who chose to walk the damned path out of a strong will. Even if it earned her a label “no Indian woman would ever aspire to be,” as we shown in the clip. It is this very reason that makes us want to look up her history, something many of us have been constantly erasing from our browsers for long. Thus, here are 5 reasons why Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story Of Sunny Leone is unapologetically and deservedly heroic, and a must-watch!
The three-part series is a real reveal – recounting days of Sunny being bullied in school, to a somewhat shy teenager who had to leave her hometown. Nobody, until today, bothered to know about this phase of the Baby Doll star’s life. The episodes are kept crisp and to the point, no padding required whatsoever.
