The good news is that Sunny Leone is on board for “Jism 2”. But the bad news is that “Jism 2” will not be shot in Darjeeling.
Pooja Bhatt, who signed on the actor this week, isn’t disheartened though. The director, who will be producing a movie to be directed by Soni Razdan in 2013, wants to shoot the film in the hill station.
Says Pooja, “We signed on Sunny this week. She will play a woman caught in the crossfire of two men trying to seduce her and are in turn being seduced by her. The best part of casting Sunny is that she didn’t have any background of the film or our body of work. She responded to my father’s offer with an energy that was spontaneous. However, I will not reveal who that woman is under the sheet in the “Jism 2” poster. Just as no one knows who the voice of “Bigg Boss” is, let the myth under the sheet remain.”
About Sunny’s role Pooja says, “It is the story of a girl who emerges from darkness to light. I’ve great respect for Sunny because she doesn’t sell her profession as one being born out of tragedy. In the film, she works in the entertainment industry. Sunny plays a new-age Helen in “Jism 2″. Helen was a great combination of sensuality and grace. One doesn’t get that combination in the so-called item girls of today’s cinema. Sunny’s character is a combination of dazzling beauty, intelligence and vulnerability.” So, will it be Emraan Hashmi or Randeep Hooda opposite Sunny? “By the grace of God, Emraan is doing very well now. I can’t expect that he will be sitting at home waiting for me to sign him on. Besides, I’m not interested in following a pattern of Mahesh Bhatt or Shagufta writing the lines and Emraan mouthing them. I want brand “Jism” and brand “Murder” to be different. I am considering Randeep for another film.”
