From being an adult star to becoming a Bollywood actress, Sunny Leone has come a long way and is today a force to reckon with in India. Apart from gracing the big screen, the pretty lady has also done television hosting and even a web series which is based on her own life titled Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone. While Sunny is successful in the industry today, it took her a while to make her mark in Bollywood. The 37-year-old made her acting debut in 2012 with Jism 2 but she was offered her first movie back in 2005.

Filmmaker Mohit Suri had initially decided to cast Sunny in his thriller film Kalyug and even approached her for the lead role. However, the talented director had to change his decision as Sunny apparently demanded a whopping $1 million for the film.
In 2011, Sunny entered the controversial reality show Bigg Boss 5 and soon became a household name. Though she wasn't the winner, the Salman Khan hosted show helped her gain popularity in India. After exiting from Bigg Boss, she finally signed her first Bollywood film - Pooja Bhatt's Jism 2 - and made her acting debut.

In short, Sunny had to wait 7 years after she was approached for Kalyug to enter Bollywood which is a really long time, no? Anyway, things eventually worked out for her and she went on to do films like Jackpot, Ragini MMS 2, Ek Paheli Leela and many more thereafter. And today the gorgeous actress is one of the busiest artists in B-town. Now if this is not a success story then what is?
