Sunny Leone is a Canadian-Indo model, adult film actress, social media personality, and reality TV star who has a net worth of $16 million. As of this writing, she has over 50 million followers and is one of the 100 most-followed people on Instagram.

Karenjit Kaur Vohra, best known by her stage name Sunny Leone, was born on May 13, 1981, in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. She appreciated the bitter Canadian winters and their accompanying snow because she was nurtured in such a lovely place.
She was a skilled performer who delighted in the attention it brought her and cherished every compliment that was given to her.
Although her parents are Sikh Indian Punjabis, she went to a Catholic school as a child out of worry for her safety in a public setting.
When Leone was thirteen years old, her family relocated to Fort Gratiot, Michigan; the following year, they did so in Lake Forest, California. Leone became aware of her bisexuality at the age of 18.
Career as an Adult Model
She met John Stevens, an agent, through a classmate who was an exotic dancer when she was completing her education to become a pediatric nurse in Orange County. Stevens gave her the name of Penthouse magazine photographer Jay Allen.
She picked “Sunny,” her real name, and “Leone,” which was proposed by Bob Guccione, the former publisher of Penthouse magazine, as her stage name for her adult profession.
Along with becoming the “Penthouse Pet of the Month” in March 2001, Leone also served as a model for publications like Hustler, Cheri, High Society, Lowrider, and Swank.

Leone announced the establishment of her independent studio, Sunlust Pictures, in 2009, and subsequently released her debut self-produced film “The Dark Side of the Sun” in March of that year.
She continued to produce other films, such as “Sunny Slumber Party,” “Gia Portrait of a Porn Star,” “Roleplay,” and “Goddess,” which were made available online by businesses like Totemcash, PPPcard, and Flirt4Free and ultimately increased her popularity.
The Vivid Comedy Tour, the Vivid Footwear campaign, the Vivid/ClubJenna Lingerie Bowl, and Vivid’s Hot Rod Night were among Leone’s other solo endeavors. However, she retired from the adult entertainment industry in 2013.
In September 2009, Apple approved an iPhone application featuring Leone, containing non-explicit photos, videos, and her blog. This marked the first time that Apple had authorized an app featuring an adult film star.

With citizenship in three countries—the United States, Canada, and India—Leone currently resides in Mumbai with her husband and kids.
