Patel says that he has also sent a legal notice to Sunny in 2017 to get the signing amount back, but did not get a response for the same.
However, sources close to Sunny Leone tell a different story. According to them, there was a lot of back and forth on the shoot dates and the makers of the movie kept changing the dates.

On the work front, Sunny is currently hosting MTV Splitsvilla Season 11 with Rannvijay Singh.
