Women should speak for themselves: Sunny Leone

From being an adult star to playing the lead role in Bollywood films, actress Sunny Leone aka Karanjit Kaur, who fought several hardships throughout her career, believes women should stand up for their rights.

"Women should speak up for themselves. They should say whatever they feel and do whatever they want to do.

Every girl should pursue her passion and follow her dreams. These small choices will strengthen our women and make them more confident," the Jism 2 actress told media, who was present at Madame Tussauds to unveil her wax statue.

Sunny also said that to bring a change in the society, people should first change themselves.

"In homes, women must feel free to express what they want to say. If they don't want to wash dishes, they can confidently ask their husbands to wash the dishes. Making small choices will change the status of women in our country and I believe it should happen in homes first,” she said.

Sunny's wax figure has been made with the aroma of her signature perfume and was handcrafted from over 200 measurements and photographs, taken during the sitting session with her.

While unveiling her wax statue at Madame Tussauds, Sunny said, “I am very happy and completely in awe of my statue. So many people have worked for a long time to get my wax figure in correct shape. I really appreciate the hard work. It is an amazing feeling. I am glad to be chosen for this incredible honour."
