Sunny Leone: I live in a bubble

Actress Sunny Leone feels she lives in a bubble, and says that she would like to believe that the whole dialogue around women empowerment and the #MeToo movement has changed people's mindset.

After making quite an impact in the West, the #MeToo wave swept into Bollywood last year. It was triggered off when Tanushree Dutta revisited an unpleasant episode involving veteran actor Nana Patekar on the set of "Horn 'OK' Pleassss" in 2008.

Gradually, many more dark truths from the world of Bollywood came to light, with women naming and shaming predators.

Asked about the change that came with the #MeToo movement, Sunny told IANS: "I don't work in an office. I live in a bubble but I do think and I do believe that the more women talk about these issues of sexual harassment or (instances of people) making them feel uncomfortable at work, whether it is women or men… I have to say that it does happen to men as well. It is just not recognised because 'he is guy what is the big deal'."

"If someone is bothering them at the work space or some place else, the more that they speak up, the more they make it aware that no it is not okay … I think yes things will change."

"Especially when so many things have come out through social media, media outlets that I have to assume that people are thinking twice that ‘ohh am I being videotaped, recorded or will she have a moment (in the future)'. I am sure that it makes (such) people uncomfortable," she added.

Sunny was glad that a message around the importance of consent was included in web series "Ragini MMS Returns Season 2". She has a cameo as a paranormal expert in the ALTBalaji series.
