“I would walk towards the door with a knife in my hand,” says Sunny Leone
Actress Sunny Leone, who has always seen raising her voice against what she feels is wrong, says that she has been a victim of cyber stalking, reports mid-day. The 36-year-old actress recently joined hands with an NGO – Akancha Against Harassment – to fight cyber harassment and online abuse. Speaking to mid-day Sunny recalled an incident, when a social media user threatened her on the Internet. “Someone threatened me, telling me he’d come to my house to cause harm. Daniel (Sunny’s husband) was not in the country and I was frightened, because I was living alone. I would hear noises outside my house and walk towards the door with a knife in my hand,” mid-day quoted Sunny Leone as saying.
Not only this, but Sunny also recalled a horrifying incident, in which a social media user with a great number of followers, literally arrived at her house. Sunny said: “He started banging on my door. That his Twitter followers had also bullied me, made me fear that a mob would turn up and break into my house.”
After the tragic incident, Sunny installed cameras outside her home but revealed that the incident still affects her.
Of this, Sunny urged everyone to create awareness among youngsters. “Young girls and boys go through depression because they are bullied. Many even end up committing suicide. I don’t know if this will end, but, we can create awareness about it. Thankfully, people have been supportive towards me, and, I am strong, but not everyone can say that. We need to help them,” said Sunny Leone.
Recently, Sunny Leone, who is currently seen hosting the tenth season of popular reality TV show MTV Splitsvilla, showed ‘no tolerance’ attitude towards sexist attitude. Sunny schooled a contestant named Hritu Zee for having made an offensive remark concerning her fellow contestant.
Sunny is all set to feature in Tera Intezaar, co-starring Arbaaz Khan – the trailer of which was released on Wednesday. In no time, the trailer gained its top spot in Twitter’s trend list.
Sunny Leone started her Bollywood journey with 2012’s Jism 2 and followed it up with films such as Jackpot, Ragini MMS 2 and Ek Paheli Leela.
