Actress Sunny Leone has gotten into trouble after a police complaint was filed against her at Delhi's New Ashok Nagar Police Station for singing the national anthem incorrectly at a recent sports event.
The actress had sung the national anthem at a Pro Kabaddi League match on Thursday night in Mumbai. But this seemingly harmless act has gotten her into a soup.
The complainant, Ullas, filed the case for allegedly not pronouncing certain words correctly. According to him, if someone like Sunny Leone, who enjoys so much popularity, commits such mistakes then it will influence her fans as well. He said that the Canadian American actress should have practised the song well before singing it at the event.
By the looks of it, the rendition did not lack practise. Earlier this month she had tweeted about her rehearsals for the event. She wrote, "In order to get all the words correct and pronunciation correct I had to hear what I'm singing. Been practicing on my own all month."

After the event Leone had said to PTI, “It’s a proud moment for me. I had never ever desired or thought that I would get to sing the national anthem. I feel blessed and honored. I was very nervous.”
Last year the Pro Kabaddi League had Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan singing the National Anthem.
