Bollywood star Karenjit Kaur Vohra alias Sunny Leone has arrived in Dhaka with her husband one day after her visa application got cancelled.

Musician Kaushik Hossain Taposh, managing director of Gaan Bangla TV channel, received her at the Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport around 5pm on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Information and Broadcasting Minister Dr Hasan Mahmud said that Sunny’s visa was declined because she had applied for a visa with a US passport without using her known name.

She was supposed to come to Dhaka for Shapla Media's film “Soldier”. However, filmmaker Selim Khan claimed to Bangla Tribune that this was not her visit to the film “Soldier”.

Earlier, the government had given work permits to 11 actors, including Sunny Leone, to come to Bangladesh from India for the film “Soldier”. 

Later, only Sunny’s work permit was revoked, said a notification of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting on Thursday.
