"Are you proud of your past?"

"Do you think Aamir Khan will work with you?"

"I wonder if I'm being morally corrupt by interviewing you"

"In typical Bollywood terms, you're an item girl"

"How many people would aspire to be a porn star?"

These are some of the statements thrown to Sunny Leone in an interview with Bhupendra Chaubey.

In a bid to promote her upcoming film, Mastizaade, Leone must have thought she was attending a harmless, promotional interview. What she got instead, like Alia Bhatt mentions in tweet (scroll below) was "hyper opinionated statements with a question mark at the end."

She is a rockstar: Bollywood applauds Sunny Leones zen-like responses to Bhupendra Chaubey

The 30-minute-long interview is replete with Chaubey cutting Leone off as soon as she started to make a point that deviated from her "image" or her "past". It seemed as if all the questions were aimed to corner Leone, and yet she managed to keep her cool and answer his questions with dignity and a straight face.

Even topics of politics and being the most-Googled person in India, were conducted by Chaubey with a sly smirk on his face, as if to indicate that the only thing one deserves to speak to Leone about is porn.

Leone was probably more calmer than anyone in her place. Upon being asked on what she felt about CPI leader Atul Anjan blaming her for corrupting Indian morality and youth of the country, her response was, "I'm waiting for the day when Obama makes a speech about me."

One is unclear what the purpose of Chaubey's interview was. Gaurav Kapur in his tweet nails it, by saying, "Bhupendra's every word reeks of a dodgy agenda". Maybe he thinks talk about porn sells?

Either that or like Vir Das mentions, he was exploring his own prejudice towards porn and morality.

Here's how Bollywood and Twitterati reacted to the now viral video clip of the interview:
