The incredibly beautiful Sunny Leone is an actress, a philanthropist, a working mother, and a movie producer. She started her career an actress in porn industry, and then thanks to a stint in a season of Bigg Boss, Sunny, originally named Karenjit Kaur Vohra, found mainstream acceptance in Bollywood, getting to play the main lead in Pooja Bhatt's Jism 2. The movie was a big success, and Sunny Leone went on to deliver a bigger hit in Ragini MMS 2.

I Eat Your Skin
This 2019 Australian horror film feels more like a movie shot on hand-held camera with some very bad acting. Here's what the IMDB premise reads for the film - "A group of international photographers journey to photograph a rare bird in the Philippines. When one of them finds a corpse clutching a strange talisman, he becomes host to a vengeful spirit and begins to prey on his fellow travelers." But there is an even bizarre story about this. This movie is a recycled version of an old adult movie of the actress called Black Shama, that was made even before Leone entered Bollywood!
An Indo-American production, this horror adventure thriller has a mix of Indian and American actors, and is about a vengeful pirate's ghost and a treasure trail. Sunny Leone is one of the treasure seekers, and the movie sees her getting stripped a couple of times, trying to seduce her disinterested partner and then killed by a zombie.
A pretty B-grade creature flick the genre which we usually watch downing a few beers, Mega Scorpions is about a bunch of scorpions who grow monstrously big and kill a bunch of humans. Sunny Leone appears towards the rear end of the film, in the epilogue and she doesn't last really long. Credited in IMDB as 'Hot Tub Hussy', her brief appearance involves appearing in a towel, disrobing herself to appear nude and then get killed brutally by a scorpion.
