On July 16th, Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone, Zee5’s ambitious biopic was released to much anticipation. Directed by Aditya Datt and starring Sunny Leone in the titular role, the series chronicles the journey of Leone from a girl-next-door to a pornstar and then to a Bollywood actor.

Here is the trailer of Sunny Leoni’s Biopic

Now it became a major Controversial Topic in India, the biopic has been heavily trolled on social media.

Where were these people, with their moral codes and ethics, when Sanju shamelessly bragged that he has slept with 350 women?

Why?

Just Because she has exercised her right to choose her profession as a Pornstar? Or She’s a hardworking woman who has always stood by her decisions.?

Where were these people, with their moral codes and ethics, when Sanju shamelessly bragged that he has slept with 350 women?

However, this trolling isn’t the only thing affecting Leone’s biopic. The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) has objected to the use of ‘Kaur’ in the title of the film. According to TOI, DSGMC’s general secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa said, “To use it for the Shake of publicity stunt and depict the porn life of a celebrity is derogatory for Sikhs across the world.”

He even wrote a letter to Essel Group Chairman Subhash Chandra, asking him to withdraw ‘Kaur’ from the title.

The opposition to Sunny Leone’s biopic shows just how much India values its questionable morals and ethics over individuals, especially in the case of women.
