It’s the season of biopics and protests and alternate ideas. Sunny Leone, whose life has been turned into a web series – Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone – is in trouble with the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee, who have objected to the use of Kaur in the title.

According to SGPC, the usage of Kaur hurts Sikh sentiments because Kaur is a title that holds sanctity to the Sikhs and since Sunny did not follow the teachings of the Sikh Gurus, she shouldn’t use that term. Not just SGPC, even the Istri Akali Dal President has said that Sunny is unaware that the usage of Kaur might hurt religious sentiments. Every project that Sunny has been a part of has faced controversy and this is just the next addition. She was already a subject of the docu-drama Mostly Sunny, which was streaming Netflix for a while.

The web series promises to be a tell all account of the life and times of Karenjit Kaur, better known as Sunny Leone, who is one of the few women to have evolved from an adult film actress to a mainstream actress and has a great following. She single handedly revived the Ragini MMS franchise and has been part of several other erotic thrillers like Jism 2, Jackpot and others. Her last Bollywood film was Tera Intezaar in 2017, which starred Arbaaz Khan Sali Ankola and others.
