BBC named Sunny Leone among the 100 most influential women of 2016 along with 4 other Indians
Although Sunny Leone was popular as a porn star few years ago, today she has firmly established herself in Bollywood. Born as Karenjit Kaur Vohra, she sure has come a long way in life.

Sunny grew up as a normal child born to Punjabi parents settled in Canada. Her parents shifted to the United States in search of a better life when she was jut 11-years-old. Although Sunny was studying to become a nurse, her destiny had other designs. She also worked at a German bakery for a while but ultimately ended up in the glamour world.

At the age of 19 she started to star in adult films without the consent of her parents. She had discovered at age 13 that she was a bisexual. It was only after she featured on the cover of Penthouse magazine that she told her parents of her intentions to become an adult star. As expected she had to face a lot of resentment from her conservative parents.

"A couple of days ago Sunny Leone was named by BBC in the list of 100 most influential women of 2016 along with four other Indian women. Other Indian women in the list are: Gouri Chindarkar, a 20-year-old computer engineering student, 57-year-old Mallika Srinivasan, who is popularly known as the Tractor Queen of India, 34-year-old actor-writer Neha Singh, and last but not the least, 105-year old environmentalist from Karnataka, Saalumarada Thimmakka.

A documentary based on Sunny Leone titled `Mostly Sunny' is scheduled to release in 2017. The documentary is expected to reveal many unknown facts about the porn-turned-Bollywood star.
