New Delhi: Rysa Saujani, 14, who plays the younger version of Sunny Leone in an upcoming web-series, based on the port star turned actress’ life, says playing the “innocent years” of the actress’ life in her upcoming show was emotionally challenging.
She plays Sunny Leone (12 to 15-years-old) before she ventured into the adult film industry. In earlier interviews, Sunny Leone had opened up about her experience of growing up in Canada and the challenges she faced there.
“I am playing her innocent years between the age around 12-13 up to 15. I felt like the role was emotionally very challenging,” Rysa, told a news agency.
The upcoming web-series is titled Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story Of Sunny Leone.
Before arriving on the set, I did regular Skype calls, and felt like that helped me to understand young Sunny’s journey a lot more. I was able to have my questions cleared which allowed me to act in my best ability, said the young England-based actress.
“I have nothing but respect for her (Sunny Leone). She has always been very gracious and made me feel comfortable,” Rysa added.
