In an interview with a daily, Sunny Leone revealed that though she didn’t want to leave her Mumbai house, she had no other option. She says that leaving the city which has become her home ever since her debut film Jism 2 released in 2012, was really upsetting for her. But the actress revealed the reason behind her shifting to LA, she said, “It was a 39-hour-long journey. It was tiring, but somehow, the flight timings worked out well for the kids’ sleeping schedules. Personally, I was sad to leave Mumbai, and trust me, I didn’t want to leave, which is why it took us so long to decide to come here. However, it was important for us to be around Daniel’s mother and his family. Like everyone else, they wanted to be with their loved ones.”


Talking about how her children reacted to it, she said, “Surprisingly, the children reacted very well to flying out. It was a very long journey, but the first day that they were home, they played outside all day. They didn’t want to come inside at all, and it was amazing for them to be able to do that. As far as the body clocks go, it’s just a process and took a few days to adjust. Nisha’s virtual classes have ended. They will start when the new academic year commences.”

When questioned about when she’d want to return to India, she said, “I don’t have anything to do with the local service industry here, so I don’t know much about it. Luckily, we have saved some money and can lead a comfortable life. I did not want to leave my Mumbai home at all. The plan to return to India is based on when international flights resume, normally. As soon as we can fly back, we will. We want to be on the next flight to India.”
