The former pornstar is visiting the city to take part in a dance event when the incident occurred, Indian Express reported.
In December last year, a similar incident occurred, when her scheduled visit to Bengaluru also courted a major controversy.
The pro-Kannada groups held a series of protests demanding to ban Sunny from taking part in an event planned on New Year’s Eve.
They alleged that her visit to the city posed a threat to the Kannada culture. Giving in to the demands of the pro-Kannada activists, the performance was eventually cancelled.
Leone is currently shooting for her upcoming first full-length Tamil film ‘Veeramadevi’. The film is releasing in Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam, Hindi languages.
