The controversy surrounding the pornstar-turned-Bollywood actor, Sunny Leone refuses to die down.
Leone on Wednesday stirred a fresh controversy by saying that she didn’t know who Prasoon Joshi was.
This was after a journalist asked her to comment on the renowned lyricist Joshi’s criticism of her past profession.
She said, “I don’t know who Prasoon Joshi is. I will google him and then I will comment.”
While commenting on Leone’s past as a pornstar and the treatment meted out to her by CNN-IBN, Joshi had said, “I don’t support Sunny Leone’s past profession and I don’t even want the youth to get inspired by that. But it is also not acceptable to take someone up to the well for this,”
He had added, “If the person is a drug dealer, that’s the person’s personal choice. Will I disrespect the person? No! Will I insult the person publicly? No! That probably my culture doesn’t allow. But at the same time, I wouldn’t encourage the profession either. Certain professions don’t play a constructive role in bringing up a great society, we need to criticise them as well. I think that’s a free society, people have choices to make. But if the choices are not great, then we need to criticise. I think we need to draw a fine line; it is not such a black and white subject.”
