Many Bollywood stars are in the fray this Lok Sabha Elections 2019, but Sunny Leone is not one of them. Yet on the day of election results, it was the actors name that was trending online, especially on Twitter. It turned out that a news anchor mentioned her name during live coverage of the results instead of BJP candidate Sunny Deol. People were already sharing the clip when the actor joined the bandwagon herself.
Speaking about the BJP’s Gurdaspur candidate, the anchor mistakenly said it was Leone who was leading in the seat.
The ever-vigilant people of Twitter did not miss it and soon a video of the gaffe went viral online.
