Sunny supports Priyanka after social media attack

Actress Sunny Leone has supported Indian actress Priyanka Chopra after she was trolled on social media for wearing a short dress when she met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Berlin.

Sunny, who was present at the launch of animal rights organisation People for Ethical Treatment of Animals’ newest vegetarian campaign in Mumbai on Thursday, said: “I believe that we have elected a very smart man to be the Prime Minister of India. He is so smart, so intelligent and so outspoken that if he had a problem with it (Priyanka wearing a short dress) he would tell Priyanka. But he didn’t.”

She finds it wrong that people judge others by the clothes they wear.”I know she (Priyanka) gives back to society. I know she is good to people. So let’s judge her based on her actions and not by her clothes,” she said. Celebrities have refrained from voicing their opinions about the episode, including megastar Amitabh Bachchan who refused to comment on the same by saying: “Neither am I the Prime Minister nor am I Priyanka Chopra.”

Talking about who she gets inspired by in life, Sunny said: “I don’t get inspired by a particular person. I get inspired by business people and people who are successful who do something outside the box. I get inspired by people like Salman Khan who has an amazing clothing line and does lot of charity… That is very inspiring.”

Sunny Leone has been roped in as the face of Middle East’s fashion retailer Splash Fashion for their India business. The actor will feature in a new brand campaign, scheduled to roll-out on July 1, read a statement on behalf of the brand.

Talking about the association, Sunny said: “I am very honoured to be working with a global brand like Splash and representing them in India. Both, their fashion and work ethics resonate with me.” Headquartered in Dubai, Splash is Middle East’s fashion retailer and part of the Landmark Group, which is a retail conglomerate in the Middle East, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Africa.
