Former Hollywood porn star Sunny Leone who is busy with TV shows and some interesting projects in Bollywood has signed a big-budget Telugu-Tamil bilingual historical drama, ‘Veeramadevi’. The film’s first look poster, which was unveiled on the occasion of Sunny Leone’s birthday, showcased her in a warrior queen avatar.
While the movie makers are busy with the shooting process, the movie, ‘Veeramahadevi’ has landed in a major controversy in Karnataka. A few members of the Kannada Rakshana Vedike and a few Hindu right-wing groups are vehemently opposing a historical film being made with Sunny Leone. Protestors are demanding the makers to replace Sunny Leone with another actress in the film, though the shooting is more than halfway through.
They say that they worship Veeramahadevi and can’t think of a porn actress reprising the role of a revered warrior. Directed by VC Vadivudaiyan and produced under the Steevees Corner banner, the movie is slated for release towards the end of this year.
