Sunny Leone's Kennedy has made it to the Cannes Film Festival this year. Her film, directed by Anurag Kashyap, premiered at the coveted gala and is a good illustration of how far the performer has come thanks to her perseverance.
Looking back, the actor told Mid Day that she has always believed that if one doesn't give up, work hard, and stand by their morals, they will be happy with their choices. Sunny began her career in Indian entertainment in 2011 with Bigg Boss 5 and then went on to appear in Hindi films.
When asked if it was tiring for her to break into a field where some people might have held preconceived notions about her, she said that she would not be here today if it weren't for her devoted fans. They can choose to wallow in their disappointment and hurt, or they can forge ahead and find their own way. This is indeed a crowning achievement in her professional life.
Anurag and Sunny made their working relationship public last July. That got people talking about how well she might or might not fit the director's vision, who is known for preferring performers over stars. She acknowledges that speculation regarding her acting ability has persisted throughout her career. In the back of her mind, it bothers her. She hasn't made it obvious that others' words upset her. Many people have asked her when she plans on taking on a big role or how it feels to be in a serious role at this point in her career. The emotion is unpleasant; always have, always will. Some people, sadly, fail to recognise their humanity. Anurag's Kennedy is the epitome of putting up with the naysayers and making your dreams come true.
Sunny portrays Charlie in the new Rahul Bhat-starrer neo-noir thriller. The filmmaker's set has been like a university for her, where she has absorbed invaluable lessons in filmmaking. Both at the audition and on the first day of filming, she was overcome with anxiety. The actor is happy they liked her take on Charlie. It's fantastic to be able to learn from someone who is revered as an expert not just in the Indian film industry but globally. She would love to get back to work with Anurag.
