The program, called ‘Sunny Night,’ was scheduled to feature many Kannada bands and artistes. There were three – four parts of the program where Leone was set to feature – including one Kannada film song titled Sesamma. Meanwhile, Bengaluru's police swung into inaction with the police commissioner T. Suneel Kumar denying permission for the event to take place. Citing a writ by the Karnataka High Court that instructed authorities to ensure peaceful New Year celebrations and prevent untoward incidents, Kumar stated that due to the spreading out of the city's police force across Bengaluru on New Year's Eve, the law-and-order arm of government would not be able to provide "adequate security".
The event management company that planned the event subsequently filed a writ petition in the Karnataka High Court, asking that the program should be given approvals as they have planned the event for nearly two months now. However, as both sides continued to spar it out, Sunny decided not to participate in the event, announcing her decision via Twitter.
"Since the police of Bengaluru have publicly said that they will not be able to ensure mine, and all who attend, safety for my New Years event, my team and I feel, safety of the people should always come first. Therefore, I cannot attend. God bless and I wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year," she tweeted.
