Be it her timeliness on arriving on sets or her effort to understand the character, Sunny Leone is very serious about her work. We had conducted a workshop prior to the shoot. Here in the South, we don’t usually do workshops. But, this workshop really helped us to speed up the work. She attended the one-week workshop, we discussed the character thoroughly and so shooting was comparatively easy, considering how huge of a star she is.”
