Sunny Leone in her latest flick reads out a phone number of the character she plays in Arjun Patiala which belongs to a 26-year old guy, Puneet Agarwal. Now, the Delhi man is swamped by huge number of calls daily.
Puneet in a talk with BBC told that since the release of the film on July 26, he is receiving more than 100 calls a day. "I don't even dream any more. The phone keeps ringing until four in the morning’’.
When he started to realise that something is not right and while several callers referred about the film, "So I watched the movie and my number was really there," Mr Agarwal says. "It wasn't the fault of the callers. They really were given my number!
He told BBC Hindi’s Bhumika Rai that "They [the film's producers] should have at least called to check if it's a real number’’.
It is quite understandable that Sunny Leone has a huge fan following especially among men and some of them are calling Mr Agarwal because they think its her real number.
Continuous ringing of the phone is creating disruption in Mr Agarwal’s life that he is not able to work, sleep or even eat his meals in peace.
Moreover, Punnet on July 30 even filed a complaint with the local police against the makers so that his phone number can be removed or edited from the film clipping.
Now, in an interview with ZoomTV, Sunny has apologised the guy for misusing his number in the flick "Sorry I didn't mean for that to happen to you. Must get some really interesting people calling (sic)!".
Helmed by Rohit Jugraj Chauhan, Arjun Patiala features Diljit Dosanjh, Kriti Sanon and Varun Sharma in pivotal roles.
