New documentary shows Sunny Leone is an outcast in Canadian hometown


Actress Sunny Leone has become one of the most famous Indo-Canadians after her success in Bollywood but she remains a deeply divisive figure in her hometown, where many refused to even talk about her for a new documentary film on her life.

Born as Karenjit Kaur Vohra in the small town of Sarnia in the Canadian province of Ontario 35 years ago, Leone finds the community in her hometown unwilling to welcome her back.

That’s because the girl who was sent to a Khalsa summer camp by her parents went on to gain prominence as a Penthouse Pet and then as a porn star. This is made clear in the documentary “Mostly Sunny”, directed by noted Toronto-based filmmaker Dilip Mehta, which had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

While Leone may have found acceptance among many Indians, like those who invite her to perform at weddings, she remains “ostracised” by Sarnia’s Indo-Canadian community, Mehta told Hindustan Times.
