Sunny Leone, Rannvijay coming up with debut podcast shows

Mumbai– Bollywood actress Sunny Leone and popular TV show host Rannvijay Singh are coming up with their first-ever podcast shows on a digital app.

Sunny’s podcast show will be called “Confession” while Rannvijay will be sharing his thoughts on a podcast show “Life Ki Rann Neeti”.

“I have always been judged by people for who they assume me to be. Judging someone is easy, even if you may not have walked in their shoes, or don’t know the whole story. This fear of judgment leads most of us to brush our dark secrets under the carpet, and suffer in isolation,” said Sunny, explaining the intent of her show.

She added: ” ‘Confessions’ is about sharing this emotional burden that often seems too ugly to embrace. During the course of the show, I’ll help fans embrace themselves by helping them reconcile even though they may have wronged or have been wronged. There’s no judgement and no questions asked, just a friend in need.”

Talking about his show, Rannvijay said: “I wanted to unravel the journey, sacrifices and struggles that individuals go through before they achieve success and stardom. The idea behind the podcast was to share deeply personal stories from the lives of my family and friends who have inspired me and been an influence in my journey. I want to share the same lessons through fun and insightful conversations, while offering today’s millennial’s life-lessons that will help them garner success in their personal and professional lives.”

“I am very fortunate that Akshay sir made his music video debut with me. I can’t be more thankful. Woh humari zindagi me bhagwan ki tarah aaye hain (He arrived in my life like a god). I feel blessed to have worked with him,” B Praak told IANS.

This is the first time Akshay has starred in a music video and the video, incidentally, also marks the screen debut of Kriti Sanon’s sister Nupur.

“The song has received so much love from the audience. I can’t express in words how I am feeling. I even met Akshay sir and personally thanked him. When I told him I owe him a lot, and that thanks is a small word to express gratitude, he joked and said,’tu vadda karke keh de thanks fir’ (make your thanks a large one, then),” said B Praak.

The singer recently made his debut as a Bollywood playback singer recently, recording the song “Teri mitti” for the Akshay Kumar-starrer “Kesari”.
