Sunny in conversation with BeerBiceps talks about fame, Taboo, Love, transformation & Motherhood
She said, "The best part (of my adult film career) was that I worked with the best of the best companies. When I mean the best, I can only compare it to the Dharmas and the Yash Rajs here. It was Vivid, it was Penthouse. And that's just something that materialised as time went by. I read every contract. So that the companies that were hiring me got what they wanted, and I got what I wanted. I made sure that I was never being taken advantage of. Maybe seeing some other girls' success and how fast it worked and I had to work harder because I worked at a very slow pace and I wasn't into some of the things that were happening around me or that wasn't the step I wanted to take at that moment. But that has been my entire life. I have always had to work twice or thrice as hard. It gets there, where I want it to, but it just takes time. Even now."
Meanwhile, Kennedy is yet to announce its release date in India.
