Hyderabad: Indian-Canadian actress and former adult star, Sunny Leone’s upcoming ‘Karenjit Kaur: The Untold Story of Sunny Leone‘ web series which will premiere on Zee5 from July 16 has triggered a row over the name ‘Kaur’ in the title.

Sikh women leaders and the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) objected to the use of ‘Kaur’ in the title of the biopic, saying it was a respectable name given by Sikh gurus to Sikh women. “A person who didn’t follow the teachings of Sikh gurus shouldn’t use the word Kaur as this could hurt Sikh religious feelings. Sikhs will not allow her to use it.,” they said, asking the actress to tender a public apology as the title hurt the sentiments of the Sikh community.

Earlier Sunny tweeted ‘The next chapter of my life starts in a few days! Are you ready to take the journey with me through my eyes”

On the other side as Sunny Leone, who is enjoying her motherhood, shared a heartwarming post on her daughter Nisha Kaur Weber’s 1 year “gotcha” anniversary.

“One year ago today our lives changed when we brought you home with us! Today is your 1year “gotcha” anniversary and I can’t believe it’s only been one year because I feel I have known you a lifetime. You are a part of my heart and soul and the most beautiful baby girl in the world! I love you very much Nisha Kaur Weber!!” she tweeted.
