Anurag Kashyap casts Sunny Leone in 'Kennedy' and here's why
Anurag Kashyap saw the sadness in Sunny Leone's eyes and very well knew she could ace the character in Kennedy
Anurag Kashyap had his own reasons behind choosing Sunny Leone for neo-noir thriller film Kennedy.
Leone is extremely delighted to be part of the famed Anurag’s directorial which screened at the Cannes Film Festival.
So before walking the ramp with Leone and Rahul Bhatt, Anurag gave an interview to the Film Companion.
“I swear I have never seen her films, ever. I have seen her interviews. There is a certain sadness in her eyes. There has been a life in the past. I needed a woman over 40, who is sexualised by men around her, men who are in their 50s and 60s.”
He then added, “i don't need to see the act of sex and all that. I need to see this woman who is also dealing with it, also handling it, also using it all in order to survive and navigate. In Sunny, I found a woman who came with all those things inbuilt."
“Second, I am very aware of the amount of money that she is paid in the market. I said this is not the kind of film. That question never never came up. She was just so happy and overwhelmed and said, ‘the fact you are thinking of me for this, I will do it.’ She really slogged, she really worked hard and that shows.”
At the same time in November last year Leone too revealed her take on working with Anurag, calling him 'chill, 'amazing' and 'very laid back.'
"He was very serious about what he wanted from me and I tried to deliver that and he is happy, so that makes me happy."
