Playing young Sunny Leone was emotionally challenging: Rysa Saujani
Actress Rysa Saujani, 14, says playing the innocent years of actress Sunny Leone's life in her upcoming show was emotionally challenging.
"I am playing her innocent years between the age around 12-13 up to 15. I felt like the role was emotionally very challenging. I always wanted to play such types of roles that had a lot of emotional depth," Rysa, who will be seen as Sunny's younger version in ZEE5's show Karenjit Kaur - The Untold Story Of Sunny Leone, said.
"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.
She is all praise for Sunny whose real name is Karenjit Kaur Vohra. "I have nothing but respect for her. She has always been very gracious and made me feel comfortable," said Rysa.
On learning from the life of the former adult film actress, she said, "Within my family, especially, we don't have the right to make any judgements about someone. This (the show) reemphasized the belief that I had.
Rysa doesn't watch a lot of Hindi movies but featured in the 2017 Bollywood film Dobaara: See Your Evil as the younger version of actress Huma Qureshi.
