Bollywood actress Sunny Leone announced the launch of her debut NFT Series on her website. Although there are no specific details yet on her NFT Drop, we can assume that Leone would capitalize on her career as a model and actress. With a social media following of almost 50 Million on Instagram alone, Leone is poised to hit it big.
So far, Leone has created a website for her NFTs in partnership with MintDropz, a Silicon Valley startup. According to the website, “Your Sunny Leone NFT is your membership access pass to the exclusive content, perks and access in Sunny Leone Metaverse.” So some of the utilities of the NFT are unlockable content, access to a private Discord channel and early access to future drops.
The Jism-2 actor explained why she’s into NFTs. She said that “Crypto is the future of the world.” Moreover, she also likes that it gives her an opportunity to express herself with art. She believes in the capacity of NFTs to establish ownership and create scarcity.
NFT Scene in India that Leone is Joining
2 months ago, Binance-owned exchange WazirX launched India’s first NFT Marketplace. Like Nifty Gateway, it only offers exclusive artworks. During the launch, the platform pulled in 11,000 creators with 15,000 applications. One draw of the platform is that the NFTs have no listing price, only a minimal gas fee of $1. Moreover, Wazir X only charges a 5% service fee for each successful sale, so the creators get 95% of the sales proceeds.
Three weeks ago, we reported that WazirX assembled India’s most prominent artists to release an NFT Collection honoring 75 years of India’s Independence.
In the Bollywood circle, Leone is not alone in recognizing the potential of NFTs. Indian actor, film producer and TV host Amitabh Bachchan also announced the launch of his NFT Collection. Shivaji Rao Gaekwad or Rajinikanth professionally, sold moments from his blockbuster film Sivaji The Boss as NFTs.
