A thriving career as a porn star has not stopped Sunny Leone, born to Punjabi parents hailing from New Delhi, from getting married. Born in Sarnia, Ontario, in Canada, Sunny moved with her family to California as a teenager. She studied to be a nurse and tried modelling but didn`t succeed because of her height, only 5 ft 4 inches.
Her life changed when an exotic dancer friend introduced her to nude modelling. Her exotic looks brought her the Penthouse title and later a contract with Vivid Entertainment, a quality erotic film production company which has crossed over into mainstream entertainment.
Sunny`s parents, who migrated from New Delhi 28 years ago, have some idea of what she does for a living, `but not entirely`, she says. She has not been to India since she was a little girl but is planning a trip now to meet her extended family.
Sunny lives in Sacramento and in Hawaii.
