Sunny Leone Marriage To Daniel Weber: No Kissing Clause, Biggest Hits And More

Karanjit Kaur Vohra, known better by her stage name Sunny Leone, has taken India by storm. A former pornographic actress, Sunny was named the Penthouse Pet of the Year in 2003, after which she has grown from strength to strength in a career that has been as wide as it has been varied. Even though she was named one of the 12 top porn stars in the business by the prestigious Maxim magazine in 2010, Sunny had her sights set on diversification, and with that she entered mainstream events and promotions, finally working her way into mainstream cinema. Interestingly, like some of the more famous adult stars before her, Sunny tried to take her ever growing fame as a route into Hollywood, with a few cameo appearances in 2004’s Girl Next Door and more notably, 2010’s The Virginity Hit, but it was with her debut in Bollywood with 2012’s erotic thriller Jism 2 – A Pooja Bhatt movie – that she knew where her future lay.

Sunny started out by dating Matt Erikson, a vice president at Playboy in the marketing department. It seems Matt did not get promoted beyond his means, as the first boy-girl adult video that Sunny ever did was with Matt, and it proved to be a huge success. She would later go on to get engaged to Matt in 2007, only for the couple to split in 2008. They filmed several pornographic movies together, some of which are still making her former fiancé a lot of money.

Post her relationship with Matt, Sunny delved right into business by opening her own production house, but that didn’t mean that she didn’t have the time to pursue romantic interests – as proven with her brief stint with world-renowned comedian Russell Peters. The Canadian comedian confirmed their relationship on a later visit to India and stated that his time with Sunny was a lot of fun and that he thought that  “She’s a real sweetheart.”

But it was when Sunny revealed that she was married to Daniel Weber that our interests piqued the most, so without further ado let’s get into their marriage.

Sunny met her husband to be in Las Vegas in 2007, when her career as an adult actress was at its peak. They happened to be at the same party at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino, and Sunny was unwinding after attending an awards show.

However, it was not a case of both people immediately falling for each other, as Sunny recalls not being reciprocal of Daniel’s feelings until a long time afterwards. Daniel kept approaching her for a date, and each time Sunny would turn down his requests. Finally, after approximately one and a half months of a highly one-sided courtship, Sunny accepted his offer for a date, however things were still not straightforward.

Sunny showed up late to their first date, as she wanted Daniel to reject her, but when she finally turned up, she found him waiting patiently for her, and their first date turned out to be a lot of fun for her. The couple ended up talking for over five hours, and it was then that Sunny realized that she had been wrong about Daniel all along, and that she may have a long-term future with him after all. The date had such an impact on Sunny that afterwards she sent two dozen roses to Daniel’s hotel room as an apology for coming late, and for having denied his advances over the last couple of months.

The couple ended up getting married on 20th January 2009, and haven’t looked back since. For all the assumptions about her past in the pornographic industry and the nature of subsequent relationships, the duo have proved that what’s past is past, and the only thing that counts is now.

A little known fact about the Daniel Weber – Sunny Leone marriage is that the two had a traditional wedding at a gurudwara, as Sunny is Sikh by origin. Her parents are very religious, and even though they themselves did not take part in the wedding ceremony, as they had both passed away at this point, Sunny ensured that their sentiments would not be offended, and that her wedding took place in a manner that would have satisfied them.

While the two have not shared any pictures from their wedding album on social media, we can only imagine that Sunny was donning a luxurious salwar kameez and that Daniel looked dapper in a traditional Sikh avatar complete with a turban.

Daniel has also taken over as manager to Sunny Leone, a role which the starlet has admitted he plays to perfection. Her transition across genres and types of movies, coming all the way from California to India is something she has admitted wouldn’t be possible without all of the help that Daniel provides. In fact, she has said that Daniel plays an invaluable role in managing her schedule, fixing up appointments with all of the people she has to consult with, as well as vetting ideas for future productions and endeavors.

Sunny has often alluded to how she and Daniel are a normal everyday couple who do normal everyday things. She says the two don’t like to party, instead preferring to stay at home and that she cooks for her husband a lot. She considers their relationship as being an otherwise normal one, with the only difference being that they have to travel for shoots and check out scripts, a sort of normal Bollywood couple if you will.

Sunny’s NO Kissing Clause Stuns Filmmakers

The sexy siren, Sunny Leone stunned everybody including filmmakers with the announcement that she will not indulge in any on-screen kissing in her future films. We saw the actress lock lips with her ‘Ragini MMS 2’ co-star last. The actress is not opposed to doing intimate scenes though and has agreed to do them “if the script demands so” ( sans the kissing).
