Accrding to Leone's husband and business manager Daniel Weber, the deal with Sun Lust Pictures calls for Leone’s non-nude pictures, photos, videos and trivia to be available on the Internet and mobile apps.

Saregama was spawned from a hugely popular Indian reality singing show (Sa Re Ga Ma Pa) created by Zee TV.

Madhusudan made it clear that the licensed content will not include any of Leone’s recent Bollywood film material or any new local video.
