She has become the first Bollywood actress to walk the ramp at New York Fashion Week on September 8 and looked resplendent as the showstopper in an ivory Archana Kochhar gown., but Sunny Leone reveals in the initial stage of her career, she was called “too fat” to be a model.
For the Mastizaade star, walking the ramp was a moment of getting back at her detractors, who never thought she could make it as a model. “It was such an amazing feeling. Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a model and when I turned 18, I tried. I was told I was too short, too fat, too commercial or they were just not interested,” Leone told PTI in an email interview from New York.

“This is my big ‘screw the negative people’ moment because this too short, too fat, too commercial girl got to walk at New York Fashion Week,” she said. The New York Fashion Week commenced on September 8 and will go on till September 15.
