Sunny Leone being named as PETA's Person of the Year proves she is more than a pretty face

Sunny Leone is associated with PETA for a long time and she also featured in an ad campaign by the organisation, encouraging people to adopt a homeless dog

It seems like 2016 is really a great year for Bollywood actress Sunny Leone, as not only her song Laila Main Laila is ruling the chartbuster but she is also being awarded with PETA’s Person of the Year. Sunny is an ardent animal lover and she herself is a proud owner of two dogs.

Sunny is associated with PETA for a long time now and earlier this year, she also featured in an ad campaign by the organisation, encouraging people to adopt a homeless dog. The actress has always raised her voice against animal abuse and killing them for their skin.

In an interview with PTI, PETA’s spokesperson Sachin Bangera said:

Sunny Leone’s kindness proves she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. PETA is calling on people everywhere to follow her compassionate example by adopting and never buying companion animals, and by eating healthy, plant-based meals that save animals every time we sit down to eat.

Sunny has always been criticised for her past and movie selection, but she has proved them all wrong time and again with her hard work. Giving all her haters a befitting reply, she said:

For all those people who would say crazy and bad things and want to bring you down that was the moment when I was like you guys will see this and eat your words. I believe in working hard. I believe in karma. God took my parents away and immediately after that all these things happened.
