Bollywood actress Sunny Leone is being stopped from performing at a New Year’s party.
Bollywood actress Sunny Leone has become the target of haters once again. Sunny, who has acted in a few Kannada movies, has been stopped from performing at a New Year’s Eve party.
Reportedly, pro-Kannada group Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene protested on Friday outside the Manyata Tech Park in Bengaluru against the participation of Bollywood actor Sunny Leone at a New Year’s Eve party in the city. They have protested in around 20 districts across Karnataka.
Reports further suggest that protestors have threatened to mass commit suicide on December 31 if the event is not called off. Shockingly, Sunny Leone photos were burned during the protest. According to the protestors, Sunny Leone’s participation will be an assault on the culture of the land.
According to a report in India Today, the organizer of the event, Harish, said, “We are against Sunny wearing short clothes. If she wears saree and takes part in the event, even we’ll go watch her. Sunny doesn’t have a good past. We shouldn’t be encouraging such people. We will not hesitate to commit suicide on December 31.”
Further adding that Sunny Leone has not participated for the first time, as she has performed at several events in Karnataka.
“This is a family-type programme with Sunny dancing on a Kannada song, and I, being a Kannadiga, have kept the programme’s standard based on the Bengaluru culture itself. Even though Sunny got a lot of events that offered her more money, she rejected those and agreed to come to Bengaluru since Bengaluru and Hyderabad are her favourite places. I don’t know what the protestors are expecting or what they think; this is a family show where the culture of the state won’t be disturbed.”
Well, protest against Bollywood celebrities is being done every now and then. The recent example would be Deepika Padukone’s Padmavati.
