Sunny Leone wins ‘Most Desirable Bollywood Woman’ leaving Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif behind!

Like her or hate her but you cannot ignore her that’s Sunny Leone who is giving a run for money to the bigwigs of Bollywood actresses like Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Shraddha Kapoor etc. 

After her successful film EK PAHELI LEELA, Sunny Leone has yet again proved her clout over others Bollywood actresses by winning the coveted Times 50 Most Desirable Women 2014 Title. 

In the online competition organized by India’s top most publishing house Times Of India in association with SRM Sivaji Ganesan Film Insitute, Sunny Leone won the top positing that witnessed 20.3 lakh votes.

It may be noted Sunny Leone outnumbered top Bollywood actresses like Deepika Padukone (Second position) , Katrina Kaif (fourth) , Priyanka Chopra( sixth), Shraddha Kapoor (Seventh). 

Interestingly the dark horse of the competition were Salman Khan’s discovery Jacqueline Fernandez, who claimed to fame with Salman Khan super hit film KICK, winning third position and South Sensational Shriya Saran, who is a quite a sensational in South films and has bagged a big role opposite Ajay Devgn in DRISHYAM, standing at position five. 

On being quizzed how important is the title for her Sunny replied, “This title is a huge honor to me as it has restored my faith in Bollywood.” 

“There are many people in Bollywood who are envious of my success and conceiving plans to ouster me from Bollywood but after winning this title I have gained confidence that my fans are with me and I am not going anywhere,” she quipped. 

Interestingly Sunny Leone is set to clash once again with Deepika Padukone on May 8, when her comedy film KUCH KUCH LOCHA HAI with Ram Kapoor will clash at the box office with Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan starrer PIKU! 

If Sunny Leone’s KUCH KUCH LOCHA HAI clicks at the box office than the same film industry which is acting ‘indifferently’ with her will suddenly change their color like ‘chameleon’ and start giving ‘royal’ treatment! After all everyone salutes a raising sun!!!

Why is Anurag Kashyap angry over BOMBAY VELVET getting ‘A’ certificate?

Unarguably Anurag Kashyap's BOMBAY VELVET is this year’ most anticipate film thanks to it media hype and the multiple controversies associated with the movie. Once again the movie is in news as the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has granted the film an 'A' certificate on account of huge violence in the film. 

Though the Adult certificate these days is not a taboo any more with acclaimed actors like Aamir Khan (DELHI BELLY) and Naseeruddin Shah (ISHQIYA) jumping into the A bandwagon without any hitch, yet filmmaker Anurag Kashyap is quite peeved at BOMBAY VELVET being granted ‘A’ certificate. 

Fuming with anger he retorted, “My film is a crime thriller based on the authentic 1960s Prohibition era of Mumbai and the protagonists’ ambition to grow in the heartless city at any cost.”

He added, “It has nothing violent or sexual content that the CBFC have granted it an Adults Certificate. I will be sending the film to the Revising Committee. I have faith in them.” 

One wonders why Anurag Kashyap is making a hue and cry over the ‘A’ certificate because an ‘A’ certificate these days has become license to success. The recent success of Sunny Leone’s EK PAHELI LEELA to Varun Dhawan;s BADLAPUR and Rani Mukerji’s MARDANI is pointer to the success mantra of Adult certificate. 

In the past too Aamir Khan’s DELHI BELLY, an adult comedy had broken the dry spell at the box office by earning Rs.15.65 crore on its first two days and Mohit Suri's crime thriller MURDER 2 earned Rs.34.9 crore net in the first week. 

In addition who can forget the roaring business of Ekta Kapoor’s THE DIRTY PICTURE that gave a new height of popularity to its actress Vidya Balan.
