Beiimaan Love released on 14 October 2016. The film was not promoted by Sunny and her husband Daniel Weber and Chaudhari claims that it was because he refused to chop off her intimate scenes in the film. “The duo is going through a psychological fear and box-office phobia. Sunny’s previous outings have not fared well. After seeing the rough cut, they wanted me to chop off intimate scenes between the actress and Rajneesh. Daniel claimed that he had contributed his bit by revamping Sunny’s films on the editing table. But I did not like his interference and requested them to avoid doing so. I think they got upset with my decision,” Chaudhari told Mid-Day.

You sit through it and the world will be at your feet.” India.com rated the film 2 stars and said, “It is silly to watch a Sunny Leone film and expect the seductress to act in it! Well, she can fake a thing or two (no, we are not hinting at her colorful portfolio). But you have to be honest with yourself as indeed with the faith of the filmmakers who cast Sunny in their movies.”The Indian Express said, “This is a cringe-fest from start to finish. Stay away. And wave bye bye to Sunny: when a film sinks this low, it’s hard to climb back up again.”Box Office India said,”While the film has the gusto to hold the plot together, it fails on implementation. It lacks punch and is mediocre fare.”Reporter Times rated the film 2.5 stars and said, “The film had featured a great set of comic scenes and connects to target audience very well. But it’s not a film for every type of audience, you can watch the movie for time-pass but don’t expect much from it. Sunny is not yet complete actress for bollywood films but she is improving very well. Overall it’s the best film by Sunny Leone so far.”
