(mid-day): Sunny Leone was in Surat on Sunday for the promotions of her upcoming film 'Ek Paheli Leela'. Her presence in the country's diamond hub resulted in chaos instead of sparkle — last-minute shift of venue, cops being summoned and a FIR being lodged against her.
Says a source, "The event was shifted from a five-star hotel to another place. Sunny had flown from Mumbai to Baroda and then reached Surat by road. Fearing trouble, the local organisers cancelled the original venue at the last minute and shifted the promotions to another hotel."
Sunny was accompanied by her husband Daniel Weber, co-star Jay Bhanushali and the film's director Bobby Khan.
Meanwhile, a local, who felt that the former adult star was in the city for a different motive, filed an FIR against her.
The reason behind the chaos was attributed to her topless snapshots from a private party that had gone viral last April. Buzz was that it was a bash hosted by a Surat-based diamond merchant on the Mumbai-Pune highway.
Later, there were reports that the pictures were from a 2012 party hosted by a diamond company in Macau which had several traders from Surat on the guest list.
