She might have changed tracks in terms of her primary profession, but you can’t help but have her former image, that of an adult film star, in mind.

In person, however, this girl is a true-blue Punjabi. Sunny Leone, the Indian-origin Canadian actress, is in love with aloo ke paranthe and is deeply frustrated by her colleagues’ lax attitude towards punctuality.

The diva, who was born in Ontario, traces her roots to Chandigarh, where she was on Sunday for a private business event. “My father was from Chandigarh and mother from Nahan, Himachal Pradesh. It’s the way this city smells that you feel at home. I don’t know how to explain it; it’s this peculiar, homely whiff in the air.”

Punjab also reminds her of better times, says she. “Though I didn’t visit Punjab very often, I have childhood memories of everyone getting together, staying up till late and talking endlessly. Those are the memories I associate with this city [Chandigarh]. The last couple of times I visited Punjab were either for my mother’s last rites or my father’s.”

The language, however, is something she hasn’t been able to get a hang of. “My parents spoke to us in Punjabi during childhood; we even used to watch Hindi movies. I understand Punjabi, but I can’t speak it as much as I would like to. My parents should have tried a little harder.”

Throwing more light on her ‘Punjabiyat’, she adds, “I just love aloo ke paranthe. But, I can’t eat them very often, because then I’d also need butter, curd and aam ka achaar —  things you are not supposed to eat being in the entertainment industry.”

What’s her key to fitness, then? “I try and work-out as much as possible. If can’t workout, due to the crazy schedule, I try to eat healthy. When I’m on set for 12 hours straight, I do some exercises through the day.”

Sunny is all excited for upcoming movie, Kaizad Gustad’s Jackpot, featuring Naseeruddin Shah and Sachiin Joshi. The movie is set in the world of casino boats and gambling. “I play the role of Maya. It was fun shooting in Goa for the movie, because, we were always either waiting for rain or creating it. We had to time our shots according to the weather, which was fun,” shares she.

Sunny, who would also be seen in Ragini MMS 2 and Tina and Lolo, is upset about a few things: “I’m very particular about time. I’m mostly on time, and end up waiting around for the others. In India, being on time is somehow equated to being cool. It’s a twisted concept.”

And the directors on her wish list? “No one in particular. The director doesn’t matter till the time I love the script, team and the crew. I have to love the production company and their approach. I can’t put in words the amount of stress I take when production doesn’t happen on time.”
