Mumbai: Sunny Leone’s film ‘Beiimaan Love’ is gearing up for release on Friday but the director Rajeev Chaudhari is not happy with the struggles he faced while making it. The film, which sees Sunny Leone indulge in several lovemaking scenes with Rajneesh Duggal, was not promoted by the actress and her husband Daniel Weber and Chaudhari claims that it was because he refused to chop off her intimate scenes in the film.
“The duo is going through a psychological fear and box-office phobia. Sunny’s previous outings have not fared well. After seeing the rough cut, they wanted me to chop off intimate scenes between the actress and Rajneesh. Daniel claimed that he had contributed his bit by revamping Sunny’s films on the editing table. But I did not like his interference and requested them to avoid doing so. I think they got upset with my decision,” Chaudhari told Mid-Day.
He added, “It was disheartening that Sunny and Daniel did not promote the film because I didn’t edit the scenes and cut other actors’ roles.”
He also stated that Sunny felt insecure with the presence of Zeisha Nancy in the film and that he couldn’t understand the reason behind it. He also stated that after the failure of her last two films ‘Mastizaade’ and ‘One Night Stand’, distributors were not convinced with backing a film starring Sunny and that he stretched the budget to release the film himself.
“After ‘Mastizaade’, Sunny and Daniel felt that she should start changing her glamorous doll-like image, which is why they were against performing the bedroom scenes. I told them that I would shoot it in an aesthetic way so that it doesn’t look sleazy. However, Daniel insisted that we execute the scenes in the living room or kitchen with Sunny dressed in Indian outfits. I refused and finally, managed without the scenes,” he added.
