He also said that the NDA government should look into the matter and try to stop the broadcast of these ads.

Sunny Leone is projecting this, this is vulgar, I oppose it. I respect others who have different views: Atul Anjan

He had said: “Her (pornographic) videos are more popular than today’s item songs; she is more popular than Narendra Modi and has a larger fan base,” he said. He had also claimed that the videos had an adverse effect on children and claims that a young boy fell ill after checking Miss Leone’s website.

Perhaps the notion that we can be a nation which understands and respects women’s sexual freedom and the concept of consent is too much to ask for.

He claimed that Sunny Leone is projecting vulgarness and her supporters are the ones raising objections against him.
