What Sunny said
It so happened that a fan tried to take a selfie with the star at the airport. When the fan took a few seconds longer to click, Sunny said angrily, “Le na photo (Take the photo)!”
In Ranveer Allahbadia’s podcast, Sunny recounted the incident and said, “Sometimes what happens is that I am constantly running around. I also got a catch in my back recently, but still, I am at it and I have to go along with it. So many times it has happened that I am in pain but still have to keep moving. Obviously, fans love you, and you share that with them. A lot of times, even when it (selfie) is done, they don’t move away. So at that time, I am not thinking if someone is recording me, and what I’m thinking is, ‘Let me carry on. Please try and understand’. There is an emotional connection with fans.”
Sunny concluded by addressing the negative comments on the incident and said, “Whoever wants to edit and present it like that does it, and those who are doing it are having fun, so let them have fun. I am not going to change because of that. I have not done something wrong.”
