Recently, Sunny Leone used social media to react to a parody video of herself the place her accent was a lot in focus, asserting that she doesn’t sound like a valley woman. The actor says she is conscious that she continues to be judged due to her accent, and has stopped fretting about it.
Last month, Leone responded to the video by media influencer Dharna Durga, the place she was seen imitating the actor from her relationship actuality present, Splitsvilla. She stated, “I don’t think I sound like a valley girl…but nice one ladies”.
“What pushed me to respond to this influencer was that I thought it was funny. Whether someone is talking good about you or making fun of you or appreciating you, as long as they are talking about you, whether it’s good or bad most of the time, then it’s okay,” Leone tells us, including, “I make fun of myself too, so I don’t take life so seriously to be insulted”.
Here, Leone, who made her Bollywood debut with Pooja Bhatt’s Jism 2 in 2012, admits that she is judged for her accent.
“I can’t do anything about my accent. And all around the world, people make fun of everybody’s accents. Americans make fun of certain accents. Here people make fun of my accent. So, it is what it is,” says the actor, who grew up in Canada, and shifted her base to India a lot later in her life.
The 41-year-old continues, “I don’t necessarily think I sound like a valley girl, but, you know, it’s her version of what she feels I am or someone feels that I am. So, it’s fine. It’s okay”.
Opening up about whether or not it’s honest to guage her for her accent, the actor says, “Well, my name is bigger than my accent”.
“People like me as a person, which is amazing. I’m happy for that. I have built a reputation of being very professional, and I plan to keep it that way. And if someone wants to make fun of me, it’s totally okay with me. All I know is that I would never make fun of them because of their accent. Because that’s my philosophy in life,” says the actor, who has featured in tasks akin to Ek Paheli Leela, Kuch Kuch Locha Hai, Raees, Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story of Sunny Leone and Ragini MMS Returns.
In truth, she is the one to search out humour in every little thing, even when the joke is on her.
“I watch these parodies being made of me or people making fun of me, these influencers, and think that, hey, if that influencer thinks I’m special enough to make fun of, then amazing. I’m so happy about it and I don’t look for them. But if somebody sends it to me, then yes, I watch and I get a chuckle out of it,” says Leone, who’s busy engaged on a challenge with filmmaker Anurag Kashyap in the mean time.
