The trailer begins with present-day Sunny Leone sitting in a green room and prepping for an interview.

Sunny plays herself in the film while a South African actor has been finalised for the role of her husband, Daniel Webber. Rysa Saujani, 14, plays her younger version.
“I am playing her innocent years between the age around 12-13 up to 15. I felt like the role was emotionally very challenging. I always wanted to play such types of roles that had a lot of emotional depth,” said Rysa. She is all praise for Sunny. “I have nothing but respect for her. She has always been very gracious and made me feel comfortable,” Rysa had earlier said.
