The ‘People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) India have chosen Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone for their next ad campaign. This particular brand new campaign shows Sunny in a white top with a wink standing next to the caption which reads:
‘Too Much Sex Can Be a Bad Thing. Sterilise your dogs and cats’.
The ad was shot by leading photographer Gaurav Sawn. Sunny, who was the 2003 Penthouse Pet of The Year, says, “I believe in not buying-and adopting. And it’s because there’s so many dogs out there that need a home, that were left on the streets. They just need that love, and if you can rescue an animal, then that’s one of the greatest gifts you can give.”
She further says, “I believe that every single dog should be spayed and neutered. You don’t want to continue the cycle of homeless dogs or cats. And spaying and neutering also keeps them healthy. It prevents them from having different diseases that they can get if they are not.”
In her house at Los Angeles, Sunny owns two rescued dogs. Her Bollywood debut flick ‘Jism 2’ has donated the sexy lingerie worn by Leone in the film to PETA for auction. The auction begins on 3rd August 2012
Former Miss India Sarah Jane Dias Is making her Bollywood debut with the adult comedy ‘Kya Super Kool Hain Hum’. The actress is seen super excited and full of energy during the promotional events for the flick. However, one such promotional event at Faridabad in New Delhi turned out to be a nightmare for the newbie as she was struck by a stone on her face by one of the on lookers.
Incidentally, Sarah was on stage with co-stars Riteish Deshmukh, Tusshar Kapoor and Neha Sharma at the promotional event in Crown Interiorz Mall when a group of guys flung a sharp, pointed stone at the stars which hit Sarah’s face. Sarah immediately left the stage and the injury caused a swelling on her face. Both Sarah and Neha cancelled their performance owing to this unfortunate turn of events.
A disappointed Riteish addressed on stage saying, “This kind of behavior from the crowd was not expected. We are extremely disappointed.”
Later Sarah expressed her anger and frustration through her Twitter account where she wrote:
“A stone was thrown at me on stage in Faridabad, it hit and hurt my lip, for the first time in my life, I’m truly ashamed of our people.”
“It’s deeply disheartening to have to say horrible things about my country… but this was uncouth and had it have been someone ‘more important’ it would not have gone down well,” she added.
All we are waiting for is the movie to hit the screens. A good box office collection would probably be the best answer to such nuisance…..
