Here's why Sunny Leone will not be attending screening of her docu at MAMI

The actress, unhappy over the inclusion of some scenes, had skipped the screening of Dilip Mehta's Mostly Sunny at Toronto as well.

Fans were shocked when Sunny Leone objected to the documentary on her life, Mostly Sunny, and failed to show up for the première at the Toronto International Film Festival last month.

Leone expressed reservations over certain portions in the film. But with director Dilip Mehta refusing to make any changes, the actress chose to give the Toronto premeire a miss and declared that she didn’t want the film to be screened in India.

Mehta had spoken exclusively to Cinestaan.com and explained his reasons for not giving in to Leone's demand (Sunny Leone cannot erase her past: Documentary director Dilip Mehta). Mehta hoped their differences would be resolved and the film would have a smooth release in India.

Mostly Sunny will have its first screening in India at the MAMI (Mumbai Academy of Moving Image) film festival tomorrow. However, Leone will not be part of the event. Apparently, the actress hasn't chosen to skip the event. It's just that she is not in the country at present.

Confirming this, Leone's husband and manager Daniel Weber sent us a text message saying both of them will not be in India until a couple of weeks later.

When contacted, director Mehta said he had no idea about the actress's presence, but added, “It will be nice if that happens.” A MAMI spokesperson, too, claimed ignorance on whether Leone would be part of the Q&A session that follows the screening. There is, however, no mention of her name in the schedule for the morrow.
