Dilip Mehta’s 'Mostly Sunny'
2016, Canada, 86 min, English

Sunny Leone has reinvented herself as one of Bollywood’s biggest stars. She has a fan following of hundreds of millions on social media and is India’s most ‘Googled’ celebrity for the fourth year running. "Mostly Sunny" tells the remarkable story of this Canadian-born, American-bred adult film star who is pursuing her dreams of Bollywood stardom. 

Even more astonishing is that Sunny was born into an orthodox Sikh family in small-town Canada before being anointed as Penthouse “Pet of Year”, a few years after the family had moved to California. The film is a ‘fly-on-the-wall’ glimpse into an extraordinary life — one that exposes the conflict between traditional cultural values held sacrosanct by immigrant parents and the lifestyle choices made by their children under and within the influence of Western society.

Determined to succeed as a mainstream actress in a country in the midst of its own transformation, Sunny is unapologetic as she challenges the modern notions of independence, celebrity and feminism while forcing the birthplace of the Kama Sutra to confront its paradoxical relationship with sex. "Mostly Sunny" is a heartwarming introduction to Karenjit Kaur, a simple Indo- Canadian girl who lives behind the fantastical persona of Sunny Leone.
