Mumbai: Indo-Canadian adult films star-turned-actress Sunny Leone is known for her bold and sensuous image, but she hopes that the audience appreciates her acting talent more in her forthcoming film ‘Jackpot’.

"`Jackpot` is a very story-driven movie. It`s a fast-paced film that moves extremely fast. It`s not just about being sexy for me in this movie. Hopefully, they (audience) get to see a different side where my acting is appreciated a little more," the 33-year-old said here Tuesday.

"I hope that happens. I hope when people watch `Jackpot`, they see that I did work really hard. I spent days and nights making sure that I learn these lines frontwards and backwards, or at least try," she added.

In the Kaizad Gustad directorial, Sunny will be seen opposite actor-producer Sachiin Joshi. The film, releasing Friday, also stars Naseeruddin Shah.

Sunny made her Bollywood debut with 2012 film ‘Jism 2’.
