The other side of Sunny Leone

The other side of Sunny Leone
Sunny Leone is known for her boldness in Jism-2. But there is more to this bombshell than just that. Her recent interaction with the media where Sunny Leone & Daniel Weber were at Hotel Hyatt Regency to promote Sunny’s debut film Jism-2 directed by Pooja Bhatt, highlighted that not only was she soft-spoken, but when it came to matching wit for wit, she simply sailed through interviews. Most importantly at the fag end when after a grueling set of interviews, S

sunny, instead of retreating back to her room, actually took the trouble of checking out if the hairstylist and makeup people had their lunch or not. Now, that is one more side of Sunny Leone we surely love

The Journey of Tinkle and its Characters!!

Tinkle made its debut on 14thNovember, 1980. The Guest of Honor who launched the very first issue was a 12-year-old girl, Elaine D’Lima. She was the winner of a Story-telling contest conducted by Mr. Anant Pai across 90 schools. There was no issue of Tinkle in December that year but it began to come out regularly from January 1981. The concept of Tinkle was to provide a children-oriented family magazine, in a comic format. Mr. Pai and Mr. Subba Rao were in their cabin when one of their office staff came in to inform that there was a call for Mr. Pai and whether he could ‘Tinkle back’ later. That’s how the name ‘Tinkle’ came through.

Tinkle grew from being a 32-page fortnightly to a 72-page monthly. Over the years Tinkle’s popular characters have also evolved to suit the readers need. Suppandi is now shown as a young boy who has other adventures besides the many mishaps with his various employers. Shikari Shambu has moved on from being a hunter to being a conservationist. Tantri the Mantri has acquired cohorts and more complicated schemes in his efforts to do away with Raja Hooja.

Tinkle has always explored new characters in keeping with its policy of discovering new talent and exposing children to the variety that is available in storytelling and illustration styles. Starting from first generation characters such as Suppandi, ShikariShambu, Tantri the Mantri and Kalia the Crow, Tinkle now has newer additions such as Defective Detectives, SuperWeirdos and Ina Mina Mynah Mo that are gaining popularity. Tinkle also features longer stories and an evolved content now.

Tinkle has taken the entertainment online with which is filled with cool games, puzzles and quizzes keep the excitement alive. The fully moderated site also doubles up as a space for children to put up their creative thoughts together in the form of stories, poems and drawings.

Lord Krishna’s ideology to battle Sunny Leone’s jism!

Term it an irony of sorts or a quirk of fate; fact is that international pornstar Sunny Leone’s much-anticipated sex-romp Jism 2 will clash with a cute 3D animation film called Krishna Aur Kans this week.

While the all-pervading Lord Krishna will fight the devilish mythological villain Kans in the latter, the movie which happens to be India’s first stereoscopic animated feature film, will also have to battle the stiff competition at the box-office from a sex-crazed audience, wishing to check out the debut of the famed adult sensation Sunny.

But ace Bharata Natyam dancer Prachi Saathi who has dubbed the dialogues for the adorable little Lord Krishna in the movie isn’t really scared of this clash. “A seductive Sunny may be mesmerizing, but our natkhat Kishan Kanhaiya will always have his own charm and appeal,” the girl smiles and quips with oodles of confidence.

Not much bothered about the clash, she adds, “While Jism 2 is an out-and-out adult film, there is a huge possibility that family audiences would come in with their kids and elders to see how Krishna Aur Kans unfolds in 3D.” Prachi has a point and knows what she’s talking! After all, she is no novice to the entertainment industry!

Having acted as a child artiste in Subhash Ghai’s Pardes as well as a popular television sitcom Daddy Samjha Karo, she has modeled for over fifty brands and been a voice-over artiste for over 80 TV shows and 60 Hollywood and Bollywood movies.

For her sake and the sake of clean inspiring content, we hope against hope that Prachi’s conviction is blessed by the Gods!!
