Sunny Leone faced a lot of apprehensions from certain sections of the film industry when she made her Bollywood debut, but the actress said that people's perception towards her have changed over a period of time.
Sunny, 34, who made her debut in the 2012 film Jism 2, feels that people from the industry have become more open and welcoming to her and her husband, Daniel Webber.
"I've met some amazing, really nice people over the last few years, especially this year. I feel this year we have not made many new friends, but have interacted with people a little bit differently. People are reacting to me and my husband differently when we walk in a room," she told PTI. (Also Read - Blog: Sunny Leone, Can You Not? Your New Video is Beyond Offensive)
However, she does not want to blame anyone but herself for not being a social person.
"I don't want to say it's their fault that they're not being social. I think I'd blame myself. I don't go to a lot of parties. I don't go to a lot of social events so it's hard to meet people," said Sunny.
After working in five films and making numerous public appearances the Ek Paheeli Leela star still has her fan girl moments when she meets Bollywood stars.
"I am really shy. I know it is hard to believe for everybody, but when I am sitting in a room and when I see these people whom I have seen on TV and in movies, most of the time I am like, 'Wow, that's her. That's him.' I turn into a fan and get too scared to say hello. I am learning to be more social," she said.
Sunny Leone became popular in a short period, but according to her she never lets the fame get into her head.
"I don't ever tell myself, 'Yes, I've arrived.' I just want my movies to do well, the producers to make money back. As a business owner myself I know how much it costs to put up a production together," she said.
"For me, I always wish the producer makes money and people like it. I am very happy to know that my movie has done well, all the hard work has paid off," Sunny added.
