Just when one thought that the issue over Sunny Leone's past had been put to rest, ad film maker and lyricist Prasoon Joshi has opined that he would not praise her profession and did not want the youth of the country to get inspired by it.

This, he said during an event to celebrate 10 years of his hit film Rang De Basanti.

"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 past, had faced major backlash on social media.
