Actor Sunny Leonne is all set to dominate the TV screen for all throughout next week when she makes her debut on &TV’s popular show Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain.
But, Sunny appears to have left the makers of the popular TV series upset because of alleged tantrums.
According to an entertainment portal, Bollywoodlife, the pornstar-turned-actor ‘refused’ to say the catchphrase, Sahi Pakde Hain fearing that the line may have a different meaning than what’s intended.
Sahi Pakde Hain is what Angoori Bhabi often utters when she’s corrected for her wrong English.
According to the portal, Sunny’s character requires her to learn the catchphrase from Angoori Bhabi, played by Shubhangi Atre, but she refuses to say the line.
A source present on the sets of Bhabi Ji.. reportedly said, “Sunny said the line could connote a different meaning altogether and demanded for a change in script. The creative team was at its wit’s end trying to convince her that it did not have any other meaning and that Angoori Bhabhi used it in the literal context: ‘You have caught it right.’”
It took the crew nearly 45 minutes to convince her that the line Sahi Pakde Hain didn’t have any other meaning. The shoot remained stalled while the makers of the show kept trying to win Sunny’s confidence.
“In that time, the team sat Sunny and her husband Daniel Weber down, explaining that the line was popular and everybody was saying it. Finally, the actress was convinced and agreed to mouth the line,” said the source.
Bhabi Ji.. was mired in controversy in April this year after Shilpa Shinde, who played the character of Angoori Bhabi walked out of the show.
Shubhangi Atre, also a Marathi actor, had replaced her as the new Angoori Bhabi in Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai.
Shilpa had quit the hugely successful show Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain allegedly to join the Kapil Sharma’s new programme on Sony TV.
The makers of the &TV show Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain, had approached the Cine and TV Artists’ Association, which summoned her to appear before the body.
But, Shinde didn’t turn up at the date angering the members of the CINTAA, which then decided to ban her.
