“I don’t know who Prasoon Joshi is. I will google him and then I will comment,” Leone said while on a visit to Lawman's store in Mumbai, reports The Indian Express. Tweets on the Leone's latest quote are doing the rounds ahead of sex comedy Mastizaade's release on 29 January.

Before Sunny Leone forayed into Bollywood, she was popular as an Indo-Canadian porn star.

"I don't support Sunny Leone's past profession and I don't even want the youth to get inspired by that," Joshi said.

"I would like to say that you can have a comment on someone’s professional choice. Because it is not necessary that every profession has to be a good one and if it is not a good profession, it should be criticised. I would like to say this. Sometimes we start praising a profession to the skies. It is important that the profession which is connected to our lives should do great work for the society. It should do something positive for the society." he added.

Joshi's comments came after Aamir Khan told a media person during the event that he would love to work with her. "I hope she wants to work with me," Khan joked.

Earlier last week, Bhupendra Chaubey had asked Leone if Aamir Khan would work with her. She had said, "Probably not." To which Aamir had tweeted at her saying he would love to work with her.

Chaubey's interview, where he had repeatedly interrogated Leone about her 'porn' past, had faced major backlash on social media.

During the interview, Chaubey asked Sunny Leone if Aamir would work with her and attempted to answer that himself with a negative. Leone said 'probably not' and soon enough, Aamir Khan came out in Sunny Leone's support and expressed a desire to work with her in near future.

The 34-year-old Indo-Canadian actress, who is an ardent fan of the 'PK' star, said Aamir's tweet about her is a great gesture. "I can't express in words how happy I am. It was a very sweet and amazing gesture by him because as actors we all live in a bubble. He took his phone out and expressed his opinion... He supported me and it's a great feeling," Sunny told PTI.

"I think anybody in the entire world would like to work with an actor like him. He is someone for whom I have immense respect. Regardless of what happens in the future, I will always be Aamir's fan. I have always said that I am a fan of Aamir and I always watch his movies," she said. The actress was in the capital to promote her upcoming adult comedy Mastizaade, in which she is donning a double role.

The Jism 2 actress feels it's tough to make people laugh. "It's probably one of the toughest jobs because everybody is expecting to laugh when they sit on their seats with their popcorn. There is definitely an expectation, which is already set in people's minds. Besides me, Vir (Das) and Tusshar (Kapoor), our supporting cast is very funny and those are the people who elevate the lead actors' performances." Directed by Milap Zaveri, the film hits theaters on 29 January.
