Did Sunny Leone skip Australia event over bodyguard's rejected visa?
Sunny Leone apparently refused an overseas performance after her bodyguard's visa was rejected
If the industry grapevine is to be believed, Sunny Leone never travels for public events without her bodyguard. So, recently when she was making arrangements to leave for a performance in Australia, she learnt that her personal security, Yusuf Sippy’s visa had been rejected. Result? The actress apparently refused to board the flight without Yusuf.

A source says, “She was scheduled to perform in Sydney and Melbourne on Friday and Saturday. The event organisers had also been informed that Sunny would not travel without Yusuf but they chose not to entertain the request.”
The source explains while the former adult star was supposed to board the flight from Kuala Lumpur, where she was shooting for 'Mastizaade', Yusuf would have flown in from Mumbai, two days prior to the event.
“The schedule was delayed as the organisers failed to get Yusuf’s visa approved,” the source states, before adding, “Sunny has always been professional. And when the issue got sorted a day later, she jetted off for the event.”
Sunny, however, denies the buzz about her refusal to attend the event without Yusuf. “We are here in Australia and ready to head out to the event. Of course, safety is of prime importance to us,” she says.
