Actress Sunny Leone took everyone by surprise when she announced that she and her husband Daniel Weber had adopted girl child Nisha in 2017. Another surprise unfolded in March 2018, when she shared that they had extended their family by including two more children — sons Noah and Asher — via surrogacy. But the actress says she always wanted to have three children.

“I always pictured three children in my head but as time went by and no children… I would have been happy with one but God had different plans and made my dreams come true of a big family,” Sunny told IANS in an email interview.

She will turn a year older on May 13 — the same day as Mother’s Day.

“It’s pretty cool that both are on the same day. I am not sure about my birthday but I’m looking forward to Mother’s Day,” said the actress, popular for her “Baby doll” image.

She is new to motherhood and is absolutely enjoying it.

“I am the same person but now I have more love to spread to my kids. I’m so happy about being a mother,” she said.

But what’s it like to be a mother in the 21st century when crimes against children, especially girls, are increasing?

“I don’t think they have increased. I believe that the news is highlighting what has been happening for a long time already,” she said.

She just hopes “swift and harsh punishments follow these acts by the perpetrators”.

Her focus is on her children’s safety first.

“I do believe in neighbourhood safety groups for our children,” said Sunny, whose real name is Karenjit Kaur Vohra.

Her little ones keep her on her toes but work hasn’t taken a backseat. She is excited about ZEE5’s show “Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story Of Sunny Leone”.

“Initially, my answer (to make a show on her life) was that I wasn’t sure. But once I started hearing about what the director and the production house wanted, I started having an interest in it,” said the Indo-Canadian talent.

The former adult film actress shot to fame in India when she entered the Bigg Boss house as a contestant. After the controversial reality show “Bigg Boss”, she made her Bollywood debut with “Jism 2” in 2012.

What should the audience expect from the show?

“The unexpected. This is a part of my life story and not necessarily the journey you are expecting to see,” she said.

There was also a Canadian documentary called “Mostly Sunny”. Why does she feel the need to tell her story to the world?

“Many people are curious (about her choices and journey) and want to know; so, I believe that if I’m going to tell it then it should be in my words and from my eyes. That wasn’t the case with the documentary,” said the actress, who has also made appearances in Kannada, Bengali, Marathi, Telugu and Tamil films.

“What we have made is better than a film because it gets into many details that a film will never be able to explain. For a film, the team will pick and choose what they want to show in 100-120 minutes. This (‘Karenjit Kaur…’) is showing two seasons and 20 episodes of my story. It’s only the tip of the iceberg,” she added. (BollywoodCountry)

Sunny Leone, who started off as an adult film star and ventured into Bollywood with “Jism 2” in 2012, is right now in love with her life as it is unfolding. She is not just managing a career, but also enjoying her time being a mother of three — something that has helped her change and evolve.

The Canadian-born Indian-American actress was named Penthouse Pet of the Year in 2003 and shifted her focus to mainstream acting in Hindi films with “Jism 2”, following it up with “Ragini MMS 2”, “Ek Paheli Leela”, “Kuch Kuch Locha Hai”, “Mastizaade” and “Tera Intezaar”.

Asked if she feels content when she looks back at her journey from Karenjit Kaur Vohra to Sunny Leone, she told IANS in an e-mail interview from Los Angeles: “Yes, because I love my life now.”

Her life has inspired a digital platform series titled “Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone”.

Did she have any initial apprehensions about putting her entire life out for the world to know?

“Yes, many. But what swayed me to do it is that the story would be told in a way that I was comfortable with… the true story and not something that people believe it to be,” said Sunny, who entered Indian showbiz via a stint in the reality TV show “Bigg Boss 5”.

Last year, the actress, who is married to Daniel Weber, took everyone by surprise when she announced that she and her husband had adopted girl child named Nisha from a village in Latur. Another surprise came in March, when she shared that the two had extended their brood by including two more children — sons Noah and Asher — via surrogacy.

Sunny, who is currently seen hosting season 11 of youth-based reality show “Splitsvilla” on MTV, says motherhood has changed her.

“I have changed and evolved but I believe (it has happened) for the better. I look at all three of them and am completely, utterly in love with them,” she said.

With three toddlers to give attention to, will her career slow down?

“I believe I am the best mother I can be if I am working and spending time with them. I love my job and I hope my children grow up to be just as hardworking as my husband and I,” said Sunny.

The 37-year-old actress says Daniel and she have scheduled their “time carefully so that our children do not ever feel a lack of attention, care or love”.

Ever since her debut in Bollywood, Sunny has faced flak, trolls and criticism. She finds it immature and not necessary.

“I try to brush it off and move past the hate always. I believe myself not to be a negative person so I have to find the positives in life and in people to do my job. That will never change in me. But I am affected and more annoyed from time to time at the nonsense the media comes up with or random groups come up with. It is immature and not necessary,” she said. (IANS)
