Earlier in the day, it was reported that the Shiromani Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has objected to the title of Sunny Leone’s biopic ‘Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story Of Sunny Leone’ as they feel that a person who doesn’t follow the teachings of Sikh Gurus shouldn’t use the name Kaur as it could hurt Sikh sentiments.
When contacted for his reaction to the objection, Aditya Datt, who has directed the biopic said, “I completely respect the Sikh community… I am a Punjabi myself…. but it’s surprising that in today’s modern day and age there is an objection to using one’s own family name, which is one’s birthright… and for what? The series is based on truth and facts related to Sunny’s life, including her family and early life… how does one change the truth? And why?”
‘Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story Of Sunny Leone’, which stars Sunny herself, traces her struggle and her journey from a girl-next-door to a Bollywood celebrity. The series is slated to premiere on Zee5 on July 16.
