Sunny Leone: I am not sexy in real life

Last updated on: March 30, 2015 18:59 IST

We will discover the riddle behind Ek Paheli: Leela when it releases on April 10.

Its star Sunny Leone, meanwhile, is quite a riddle herself.

For instance, did you know this very sexy actress is a geek, and a bit of a 'dork'?

Sonil Dedhia/ Rediff.com digs up some lesser-known facts from her life.

 

 

"I am not sexy in real life. People think I am sexy 24/7 but that’s not the case. I am a bit of a dork. I like to stay at home and just read a book," Sunny reveals.

 

 

"I am a techie geek; not many people know about that. I know how to do HTML coding! Also, Photoshop and how to edit videos," she smiles.

"I also do a lot of knitting and stitching. I stitch baby blankets for all my pregnant friends!" she adds.

 

"I can speak fluent Hindi. I grew up in a Punjabi home, ate Punjabi food everyday except for Fridays and Saturdays, as I would party on those days," Sunny, who was born and raised in Canada, says with a laugh. "I would indulge in aloo ke paratha with a dollop of butter, curd and aam ka achar (mango pickle). I still love to eat that. I would visit a Gurudwara every weekend and sang kirtans (holy songs) with my brother."

 

 

"Growing up, I was a tomboy," Sunny says. "I would play with GI Joe figurines rather than Barbie dolls. During my teenage years, I learnt karate and playing different sports like soccer and basketball."

 

"I am very clumsy in real life," Sunny says with a laugh. "I have to trip over myself at least once a day. I don’t get embarrassed but people around me do! On the sets, I often trip over lights, as there are so many wires lying around. I recently ran into my bike and have a big bruise on my leg."
