After making her debut in Bollywood this year, porn star-turned-actress Sunny Leone wants to be taken seriously in the industry. 

The 31-year-old star of Pooja Bhatt's erotic thriller "Jism 2" said she is ready to learn and work hard as long as she gets the right kind of roles. "I am not a veteran actress. I am just one film old. But I am ready to learn, I am a good learner. I want people to take me seriously. I want to be offered good roles in film so that I get the opportunity to prove myself. I am a no drama person and I want to work with people who  are like that," Leone said.

She has already signed her second Bollywood assignment - Ekta Kapoor's horror movie "Ragini MMS 2". She will start shooting for the film from January 15 next year. The Indo-Canadian star will be giving her first live dance performance this new year's eve at an event organised by Studio 169 in the capital. When asked if she is open to do item numbers in Bollywood, she said, "Well why not? Item numbers are important in Bollywood and they are fun to do." 

Leone also said her porn star career has been a topic of discussion in India ever since she landed here but her image will change in people's mind with time. "I am aware that I have a particular image here. There is a perception about me. But I don't really worry about it. I am very confident about myself. I don't want to change anyone's mindset. I don't care what they think about me. But I am hopeful that it will change with time," she said. 

When asked who she admires the most among Bollywood actresses, she said, "It has to be Vidya Balan. She is a no  frills actress. Her acting is so real. She has proved that actresses are not required to be a glam doll to survive in Bollywood. It is inspirational." 

Leone, who rose to fame in India after participating in Bigg Boss 5, says the reality show was a turning point in her career. "I love Bigg Boss. My career took a 360 degree turn after participating in the show. The love that I got from the Indian fans after the show is mind blowing. I cannot thank the show enough,"  she said.
