Actress Sunny Leone has apologised to the Bollywood star Sunny Deol for the “weird” jokes which exploit the fact that they share their first name.
During an interview to promote her coming adult comedy “Mastizaade”, Leone, 34, took the opportunity to call out those poking fun at the two.
“Mr Sunny Deol, I just want to say that I am so sorry. Please forgive me, because of the many horrible, weird jokes on you and me all because of me. So I am sorry,” she said on the Hotstar show “M Bole Toh”.
When asked if she feels that Indians have double standards on sex, Leone said, “I think people are a lot more accepting, a lot more open-minded than we give them credit for, I am a walking proof of that. If people had double standards and were this way, I wouldn’t have been here.”
The actress, whose curvaceous figure is envied by many, urged the women to embrace their bodies.
“Just love your body, who cares what size you are? The whole world knows I have curves, so one just has to embrace it. I have been to places where I see short women, tall women, skinny women, in their bikinis. They are happy, they are proud, they are having a good time. I think you just have to let go.”
Directed by Milap Zaveri, “Mastizaade” also stars Tusshar Kapoor and Vir Das. It is set to release on January 29.
