Sunny is currently in Kerala to shoot her upcoming film, the psychological thriller Shero.
Shero will be directed by Sreejith Vijayan and will be released in Tamil, Hindi, Telugu and Malayalam.
Shero is bankrolled by Ansari Nextel and Kannan Ravikiran under the banner of Ikigai movies.
She said that she is proud of who she is as she is a self-made woman.
The images follow a slo-mo video that Sunny had posted on Thursday, dressed in a mustard jumpsuit and posing for the camera as she slowly falls into the pool.
Dressed in ethnic clothes, Sunny Leone and family were at a resort in Poovar, in Thiruvananthapuram.
On Wednesday the Kerala High Court had restrained police from arresting the couple and their employee Sunil Rajani.
