Set to release on 10 April, Sunny Leone's "Ek Paheli Leela" has already garnered a whopping 14 million views on YouTube. Apart from her leading the show single-handedly sans any big names, the musical-thriller will also see the adult star-turned-actress in varied avatars.
"Producer Ahmed Khan was particular that every look of Sunny in the film was new and something she hasn't done before. Sunny understands the script and what kind of outfits are required and suitable for each scene," The Times of India quoted Hitesh Kapopara (Leone's personal stylist) as saying.
A village girl, model and a princess, Leone had to essay three different characters with unique looks. And what's interesting to note is she was actively involved in the process of creating them.
"While Sunny knows she has to look sexy, her costumes are according to her scenes and shouldn't look out of place/context. She's hardworking and has a very good sense of fashion, so she gives valuable inputs," added Hitesh.
The actress, along with her stylist, went shopping in the local markets of Rajasthan and London to source authentic costumes for the scenes.
Calling it the toughest role of her career, Leone elaborated how the soaring temperatures made her life difficult. "It was very hot, about 49-50 degrees and I would have to apply make-up every 4-5 hours since it got washed out because of the excessive heat and sweat. Also, I had to speak Rajasthani," she told The Indian Express.
Her hardwork didn't end there as she had to put in extra efforts to get the body language right. The film also stars Rajneesh Duggal, Mohit Ahlawat and Jay Bhanushali in key roles.
