If there is anyone who has swiftly gained fame without too much struggles and public tantrums then it has to be Sunny Leone. She was already famous in the adult film industry but her participation in one of the biggest Indian TV reality show Big Boss was like a blessing in disguise for her. But there were still a fair share of Indian population who hardly knew anything about her. She entered the house of Big Boss in November 2011 and that was the first time she was seen in Indian television and since then there has been no looking back.
The TV reality show Big Boss had a lot of hype when she entered the house. She was already the hot topic everywhere while some people protested to shut down the show there were many people who started supporting her in the show because of her mannerisms and polite behaviour.
Because of the mass popularity she gained over a short span of time she was welcomed to Bollywood. Sunny Leone made her first Bollywood debut with Jism 2 an erotic thriller franchise directed by popular filmmaker Pooja Bhatt. She became an overnight hit!
Her popularity was increasing day by day and soon realising that, directors and filmmakers queued up outside Leone’s rented flat in Mumbai giving her offers to star in their movies. And soon she was lined up for many movies. She starred in Ragini MMS, Ek Paheeli Leela and a few more. She even owns a company along with her husband, SunLust Entertainment and has successfully produces many adult movies. Apart from that she has successfully hosted a TV show called MTV Spitsvilla that is quite popular among the youths.
Everyone knows about how gorgeous Sunny Leone is but her professionalism and friendly behaviour attracted a lot of eyeballs. Even though she got a lot of criticism but that did not stop her and eventually she won millions of heart.
But as they say good times don’t last forever; is it going same for Sunny Leone too?
Sunny Leone’s latest release Tera Intezar released on the first of December badly failed in the box office. With ratings as low as one star or less by a few analyst proved to be a massive disaster what’s more, the movies collection / gathering weren’t that good either. The film opened to forty lakhs. The collection of the first three days were about 1.35 crore which is just the one third of the opening day of her earlier movie Ek Paheli Leela. There was hardly any growth seen over the weekend.
Komal Nahata, trade analyst esplained to the DNA news, “Tera Intezaar will be losing all its speculation. It will complete at a lifetime of INR 2-3 crore, which implies the aggregate misfortune for the creators would be INR 12/13 crore, which is very nearly 90 for every penny of their financial plan.”
What happened to the Babydoll star, is she losing her magic in Bollywood? People who went to watch the movie were highly disappointed and the recent tweets about the movie review says it all. The critics too were not satisfied with the movie and they have mixed reactions. Here’s some of the reviews;
Prasanna D Zore of Rediff.com said: “Arbaaz doesn’t have much to do except to keep disappearing and reappearing through the movie. Each time he does that, the director decides it’s time for a song. Tera Intezaar knows its fate at the box office. There is nothing in the film to keep you hooked. No story. No direction. No continuity. No dialogues. Nothing.”
Namrata Joshi of The Hindu says “Tera Intezaar is most consistent when it comes to the inherent messiness-it tacky in every which way, from the first frame to the last. The tawdriness reflects in every single department of filmmaking.”
Rohit Vats of Hindustan Times said: “From performing planchette to listening conversations via paintings, Tera Intezaar can entertain you at many levels. Just don’t doze off.”
