New Delhi, Dec 16: There is some bad news for the fans of Bollywood actress Sunny Leone!
According to a report in "The Times of India", The Karnataka government on Friday denied permission to Bollywood actor Sunny Leone to perform at a New Year's Eve show in Bengaluru.
"We have denied permission fearing law and order problems in the wake of protests by pro-Kannada outfits and also keeping in view the directions of the Karnataka high court in a molestation case reported on MG Road last New Year's Eve," home minister R Ramalinga Reddy told TOI.
He added that they decided not to grant permission considering that her fans in Kochi went berserk during her visit there in August. "We took feedback from Kochi police before taking the decision," Reddy added.
The event billed as 'Sunny Night in Bengaluru NYE 2018' was to be held at White Orchid convention centre in the city. The organizers, however, said, "We haven't received any official communication from the police. We'll wait for it before calling off the event. We don't know why there is so much fuss about Leone performing here. She is here only to perform for a family show."
A senior police official said they may not permit Sunny Leone for the event.
"We are waiting for the government's directions. As of now, home minister and other senior police officials are of the opinion that permission should not be given," he said.
