Bollywood actress Sunny Leone becomes the first Bollywood actress to venture into NFT (Non-Fungible Token). Following in the footsteps of superstars Amitabh Bachchan and Rajinikanth, Sunny had made an announcement.

Introducing her first collectible artwork ‘MISFITZ’ on her social media platforms, she wrote “ALERT!!! ALERT!! MEET the MISFITZ. This is misfitz HONEY! She loves the color pink… boys with tattoos…and then eats them for lunch. What the world has been waiting for!!! #SUNNYLEONENFT collectibles”.

Just as she posted the news, fans were excited to see the artworks. And this excitement reflected in the sale as well—the seller platform later tweeted “sold and minted”.

Minting is a process where the digital artwork that is represented as a unique item will become a part of the Ethereum blockchain, a public ledger that is unchangeable and tamper-proof. Speaking to IANS Sunny said: “This was a private sale and it sold out immediately. I am beyond excited about the hype behind my collection and the support from the community. In many ways, I am myself a misfit so there wasn’t anything that’s more appropriate than this collection.”

Other than Sunny, many other celebrities have launched their NFT’s. Bachchan’s NFT collections of ‘Madhushala’, autographed posters and collectibles received bids worth $5,20,000 on the first day of auction. Apart from them Salman Khan, fashion designer Manish Malhotra, Malayalam actress Rima Kallingal have also entered the NFT space.
