Mumbai: None could have ever dreamt of what Sunny Leone has achieved. From being an adult film actress in the United States to a mainstream Bollywood star in India, Sunny Leone has experienced it all.

The quintessential queen of sexuality has men prying for her attention and her journey in the land of Bollywood has been nothing short of a roller coaster ride. Sunny has emerged thick and strong despite various controversies chasing her time and again.

As the girl turns a year older today, let’s take a look at her professional journey in India.

Reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ season 5 made Leone a household name. It was while she was on the show that veteran filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt spotted her and chose to cast her in his daughter Pooja Bhatt’s film ‘Jism 2’.

Soon after her exit from the popular TV show, Sunny bagged a number of endorsement deals which included a condom brand too. She also became the face of Peta India’s campaign to save stray dogs.

Later on, she featured in a special number ‘Laila’ from the film ‘Shootout at Wadala’ and eventually bagged Ekta Kapoor’s “horrex” film ‘Ragini MMS’. The film turned out to be a hit at the Box Office.

After the success of her latest film, the ‘Baby Doll’ was roped in by Pritish Nandy for an adult comedy film titled ‘Mastizaade’.

She may have a bigger role to play in Hindi films in the years to come.

Here’s wishing her a very happy birthday and success for her future endeavours.
