However, her career received a push after she participated in Bigg Boss season 5 in 2011. Leone made her Bollywood debut with Mohit Suri’s Jism 2 in 2012. She has also acted in Ek Paheli Leela, Kuch Kuch Locha Hai, Mastizaade and Ragini MMS 2 among others.

In another case, Leone received a reprieve when the Kerala High Court restrained the police from arresting her in the alleged Rs 29 lakh fraud case. Leone was allegedly supposed to show up at a Valentine’s Day event in 2019 that was being organised by R Shiyas, a native of Perumbavoor, Kerala, but failed to do so.

As per the complainant, the Bollywood actor failed to show up at the event despite accepting the lump sum amount for doing the show. However, the actor said she had visited the venue twice but the program was not being held.
