Sunny Leone has been compared with Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra by the director of her upcoming movie "Beiimaan Love."

Praising her performance in "Beiimaan Love," director Rajeev Chaudhari said that Sunny is as good in acting as any mainstream actress like Deepika or Priyanka. "This is Sunny's best performance till date. She has acted tremendously as good as Priyanka Chopra or Deepika Padukone. She has done justice to the role. She is fantastic. You will watch her soon," IANS quoted the film-maker as saying.

When asked why did he pick Sunny as the female lead of his film, Rajeev told the news agency: "Why not Sunny Leone? I think she has all the talent to become a mainstream heroine. She has the Indian look. I watched her films like 'Jism 2' and 'Ragini MMS 2.' I was so convinced that she definitely deserved much better than what she is doing."

The director further said that the sizzling diva, who has mostly played erotic roles, will be seen in a completely different avatar in "Beiimaan Love" and everybody would appreciate her acting prowess.

The movie "Beiimaan Love" features Rajniesh Duggall as her co-actor and the trailer of the film had suggested that it will be a revenge drama. Although the film has a couple of intense love-making scenes, the director had earlier said that he is confident that the censor board will have no problems with such intimate scenes.

Slated to be released on Sept. 30, "Beiimaan Love" will have a box office clash with much awaited flick "MS Dhoni: The Untold Story" starring Sushant Singh Rajput.
