CNN IBN presenter Bhupendra Chaubey may have just unwittingly helped Sunny Leone land a movie with Aamir Khan.

Following Chaubey’s interview, widely slammed for being judgmental and obnoxious, with the ‘Ek Paheli Leela’ star, saw the journalist questioning Leone if she thinks a star like Aamir Khan will ever work with her.

Leone answered the question in the negative. To which Chaubey retorted, "You want to work with Aamir, but Aamir doesn't want to work with you. How does that reflect on you?"

With a lot of grace, Leone answered, "I will still be a fan of Aamir Khan. I will still watch all his movies."

As social media started slamming the channel and the anchor for the interview, Aamir tweeted to Sunny, saying he will be glad to work with her.

This tweet followed one where Aamir expressed his admiration for Sunny, by saying he thought the actress had conducted herself with a lot of grace and dignity, and wished he could have said the same about the interviewer.

On January 15, Chaubey’s interview with Sunny went viral, when the journalist attacked the actress in what appeared to be a desperate attempt to shame her for her past as a porn star. Leone kept her cool and responded to his questions, saying that she had no regrets about her past, and would do the same thing again ("100 per cent") were the clock to be reversed.
