Sunny Leone, an ex Indo-Canadian star, who participated in the famed reality show ‘Big Boss’, has become a household name now. Her immense popularity particularly in India seems to indicate that the definition of star has changed. With her glamorous looks, her modest and coy behavior, Sunny Leone has become somewhat of an icon, someone women want to be like in terms of appearance, and something men want to have. Clearly, to say that she has a fan following of millions will be an understatement.
But do you know that there are numerous other Indian stars who have risen to popularity overseas. Take a look at them:
1. Priya Rai
Priya Rai was born in Delhi and adopted by American parents at age two and brought to Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she grew up in the suburbs. Rai studied marketing at Arizona State University. She first began performing in movies at the age of 29 in 2007. She declared her retirement from the industry to concentrate on her vocation and individual life.
