Mumbai: News of Sunny Leone entry into the house of `Bigg Boss` has raised a lot of eyebrows and the producers are leaving no stone unturned in fetching as much TRPs as possible.

Talking to a daily, Sunny spoke about her profession and said that she is a porn star but in no way she can be equated with a prostitute. She got attracted by the moolah she was being offered to star in porn films and which is why she decided to enter the adult film industry in the US.

She is popular as Sunny Leone, but this adult film actress’s real name is Karen Malhotra. She was born into a Sikh family based in Ontario, Canada. The girl had lost her virginity to a basketball player at 16. She also discovered that she was bisexual. And her sexual orientation favoured her profession.

Talking to a daily, Sunny said, “My parents, who are originally from Punjab, were completely shocked when they found out I was in the adult entertainment industry. Their reaction was what I expected, and I was prepared for it. When my father realized what I did, he said, `You didn`t even ask us before you did this! But whatever you do, make sure you do it well.`”

Sunny has a point to prove and which is why she decided to be an inmate in the house of `Bigg Boss`. Talking about her participation in the show, Sunny said, “Bigg Boss" will make people realize she isn`t the cliched `adult star`. "I grew up in a regular Indian household; I`ve been taught to be a good person. I want Indian people to know that. And I`ve always been interested in Bollywood, so with this show, I might get good roles in Hindi films."
