For the first time, Sunny Leone is trying her luck in adult comedy “Mastizaade” and the actress says she had asked her director to tone down some scenes and dialog, as she was not comfortable with them. (@Siliconeer, #Siliconeer, #Bollywood, #Mastizaade, #SunnyLeone)
Directed by Milap Zaveri, “Mastizaade” stars Leone in a dual role alongside Tusshar Kapoor and Vir Das in lead with Shaad Randhawa, Suresh Menon and Vivek Vaswani in supporting roles.
“When I read the script, there were certain things which I told Milap that I cannot do because I was not comfortable with the dialogs and scenes. The best thing was Milap and my producer (Rangita Pritish Nandy) were accommodating and they made changes in the script and discussed options with me,” Sunny told PTI.
In the film, Sunny would be seen in a dual role of Lily and Laila.
“Laila is the typical bombshell and outrageous character and Lily is the complete opposite. She is shy and conservative. Playing double role was not tough because the whole crew organized each day so nicely that everything went well. I never felt that I am doing something difficult.”
The 34-year-old Indo-Canadian actress feels more filmmakers should come forward and make films in the adult genre, which has still not got acceptance in the society.
“People should soften a little towards such comedies as they feel these films are all about dirty jokes. Filmmakers should come make more films in this genre and it would help solidify it,” she said.
