Mumbai, Jan 20 (): Sunny Leone has granted Mahesh Bhatt and daughter Pooja their wish. The adult actor has agreed to do their film, Jism 2. Sunny Leone has finally signed after much speculation. And, she is coming to Delhi in March to shoot the film.
Yesterday the director, Pooja Bhatt, confirmed that they are going forward: “It can now be yelled from the rooftop that Jism 2 is Sunny Leone and Sunny Leone is Jism 2. I took a long time to finalise the lead because somewhere something didn’t feel right. And then I found her in my backyard while watching TV.”
Pooja also confirms the speculation that Leone plays a Delhi girl in the film. “Yes, Sunny belongs to Delhi in the film. Her roots, in real life are also from that part of the country (North India). We will be shooting in Delhi and then in Jaipur. She is playing a girl who is just out of university. There is a phase of blossoming romance in the film and what better place than Delhi to shoot it!” says Bhatt.
Porn Star Sunny Leone, whose first presence in Indian media industry was noticed next to her entry in reality show, Bigg Boss hosted by Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt.
The Bhatts had approached Sunny for the sequel when she was in the Bigg Boss 5 house, with Mahesh making a special visit to meet her. They claimed that they were impressed with her poise while she was in the house and believed only she could portray the role effectively, as Jism 2 was more about the soul than the body.
Sunny seems to have had a hard time trusting that story. Though she showed keen interest in the project, she was reluctant to sign on without further discussion. The Bhatts gave her a narration and even showed her their plan for the film’s poster.
According to the reports, Jism2 will be completely different from the John’s Jism movie. Jism was Bipasha Basu’s first film. It was an instant hit. Jism 2 will be Sunny’s Bollywood debut.
It seems the best step for choosing Sunny Leone for Jism 2 as her porn actress image is offering free and abundant publicity across the media.
