Sunny Leone: People will see my nerdy, goofy side on Splitsvilla
The actress talks about her new television reality show stint and what's in store for her fans.
The seventh season of MTV Splitsvilla is all set to sizzle even more with sensuous Sunny Leone and VJ Nikhil Chinappa hosting the show together.
The actress of Jism 2, Raginni MMS 2 and Jackpot wants audiences to look beyond the sexy tag attached to her name.
"People will get to see a nerdy, goofy side of me. They always perceive me as sexy but I'm not only that," she insists.
"Hosting and acting are two different things. You have to be quick on your feet when hosting, have to answer quickly and even ask questions quickly.
"You also have to be a good listener to be a good host.
Of her co-host she says, "Nikhil is more reserved than I am. He talks less and I’m very talkative. But we have a lot of fun."

'My husband Daniel would woo me with gifts and flowers'
MTV Splitsvilla, the popular show that brews the perfect love potion gets a new avatar this time with around 20 hot girls wooing and vying for the attention of seven gorgeous male celebrities.
"The format of this show is of girls finding their Prince Charming. I myself have had a fairy-tale romance," Sunny says.
"Daniel would woo me with gifts and flowers. My husband does lots of amazing things for me even now, after six years of marriage. I must say that I am a lucky person."
"This year the show is going to be "sexier, hotter and more romantic", she promises.
The location this time is Jaipur in Rajasthan.
"It's absolutely beautiful staying in Samode Palace in the vicinity of Jaipur, with an amazing mirror and Rajasthani art work painted all over. You don’t often get the chance to stay in the queen's room!" Sunny said.
Sunny's advice to the contestants on the show?
"I always tell the contestant to enjoy the moment and have fun. You don't know when the time will come again. I remember everything I did when I was in Bigg Boss. It was a mad experience."

'I wasn't expecting Ragini MMS 2 to do as well as it did'
Her life has changed for the better after the success of Ragini MMS 2.

Now offers to act in films are pouring in.
"I don't know what to do. I am in shock. One movie can change your life so much. How interested people have become in me after the success at the box office."
Daniel Weber, Sunny's husband, filters the film offers she gets.
"I read the synopsis and if I like it, I will read the screenplay. And if I like the screenplay then we move forward."

'You will see me in an Indian avatar in the coming year'
Any offers to play an Indianised role in a big banner film?
"Oh yes! There are things like that in the offing. You are going to see me in an Indian avatar in the coming year and a half, depending on when the film releases.
"I can't talk about it as I am bound by the contract. But with big banners like Yashraj and Dharma, you have to work hard to get there.
"I have to prove myself in acting, dancing and in ticket sales. At the end of the day, that’s what matters the most. People are buying (tickets) because they are interested in watching you. That speaks the loudest here in India.
For her improved Hindi, Sunny gives credit to her crew and staff.
"My crew speaks only in Hindi and everybody around me keeps correcting my Hindi. I speak only Hindi to my staff."
