Sunny Leone Inks Deal to Promote Manforce Condoms

NEW DELHI, India—If AVN were doing a story on the most interesting life trajectories followed by porn stars, there's a good chance Sunny Leone would be at the top of the list. After all, she's hawked Vivid Vodka, starred in India's version of "Big Brother House," signed an endorsement deal with mobile phone handset manufacturer Chaze Mobile, will soon be on movie screens nationwide (in India, that is, but probably elsewhere as well) starring in Bollywood's first erotic 3D production Jism 2 (um, Indians do know what "jism" means, don't they?)—and now she's signed with Mankind Pharma to be the face of their Manforce line of condoms, which are available in several flavors.

"I want to promote safe sex among the youth in India," Sunny told the Times of India yesterday. "Condoms not only protect against STDs but also prevent unwanted pregnancy. Contrary to popular belief, instead of bold, my shots in the Manforce TV commercial are sensual; however, there is a bolder version of the same on Youtube that shall be uploaded shortly."

The commercial will feature Sunny in "exotic locales in Thailand... lost in the flavours of the condoms," which the company says are targeted at India's youths "in a bid to remove the misconception that condoms are a hindrance in pleasure."

Sadly, the commercial won't be available until next week, and her Chaze ad should follow soon after. Also, apparently someone is after the Indo-Canadian actress to do a "first item song"—a guest song and dance cameo—in yet another movie, but with the actress busy promoting her two current starring roles—the other is in the sequel to sexy horror thriller Ragini MMS—she's being close-mouthed about the rumor.

In other Sunny news, her beautiful form graces the cover of the May issue of FHM India, which also includes a tasteful (translation: you can't see much) topless photo spread that displays the actress beautifully filling out some lingerie.
