Sunny Leone to host South Asian Rising Star Film Awards in New York

The Jism 2 babe is all set to rock the awards ceremony on October 23 with her ‘exceptional’ talent

We wonder what it is about Sunny Leone that makes her the perfect person to host the first ever South Asian Rising Star Film Awards to be held in New York on October 23. The porn star-turned-Bollywood sensation doesn’t quite have the gift of the gab, not that we know of, at least. After all, we have seen enough of Sunny in the reality show Bigg Boss last year, when she was present in the house as a contestant. Sunny was not particularly good at vocalising her feelings. Neither did she know how to play with words. Even our Rakhi Sawant could give the Canadian import a run for her well-earned dollars with her infamous blabber. Why then has the Jism 2 actor been roped in? She will be flown to New York to host an entire awards function with Jay Chandrasekhar, Indian-American director of slapstick comedies such as Super Troopers, The Dukes of Hazzard and Beerfest.

We hear that the event will be followed by the ninth edition of the South Asian International Film Festival (SAIFF), to be held October 24-30. Many Bollywood films are in the race to win the main prize in this one. Anurag Kashyap’s Gangs Of Wasseypur has bagged the highest number of nominations. Shoojit Sircar’s Vicky Donor and Abhinay Deo’s Delhi Belly are also in the race. Bangalore based band Swarathma, which is very popular for its fine music, has been nominated in the Best Composer category for work in indie filmmaker Srinivasan Sunderrajan’s Greater Elephant. Sneha Khanwalkar (Gangs of Wasseypur), Ram Sampath (Delhi Belly) and Amit Trivedi (Trishna) have also been listed in the prestigious nominations for their commendable music compositions.

But the of the show will undoubtedly be Sunny Leone! The seductress will steal all the thunder with her unique assets, for sure. By that we mean her sparkling presence, of course – what did you think! Right, Sunny?
