Saluting Sunny Leone For Being What she is !
Merely acting in an adult film industry doesn’t make anyone unethical or immoral. Before questioning the concept of porn industry or raising finger on Sunny Leone’s past – it must be remembered that in South Asia and particularly in areas surrounding the Indian subcontinent – women are sexually abused, horribly tortured and domestically tormented on an almost frequent basis.
In India and adjoining areas, women are not even given the basic freedom to roam here and there and choose their own job and life-partner – which normal girls in developed nations do.
The pretty diva did nothing wrong by entering a profession that India considers immoral. At least she did what she chose to do.
No matter what others say but Sunny has certainly carved a niche for herself in the hearts of fans and rightful citizens of the world. Hats off !
