Patidar quota leader Hardik Patel on Sunday said that Bollywood actor Sunny Leone deserved respect like other actresses be it Sridevi, Nargis or Madhuri Dixit. He said that irrespective of Leone’s past (of being a former porn star), one must view her as an actress.
As per Indian Express, Patel in a press conference at Indore, said, “What’s the problem if we look at her the way we look at actresses Nargis, Sridevi or Madhuri Dixit. If our thinking is such that we still want to see Sunny Leone on the basis of her old image (as a porn star), then this country can never change.”
However, this isn’t the first time Patel has supported the actress. Earlier as well, Patel had said that Leone deserved respect as a film actress.
