Fisheye Network Pvt Ltd and Clockwork films Pvt Ltd are pleased to announce that porn star Sunny Leone will make her Bollywood debut with the much anticipated JISM 2, a sequel to JISM. JISM released to a tumultuous response in 2003.
Pooja Bhatt dons the director's cap for JISM 2 while Mahesh Bhatt has penned the story of the film. ''Every film, every song, every actor, every role has a destiny of its own. In Sunny I have found all those qualities that will make JISM 2 and especially the role she essays, not only breathe, but also surge with life! Some say she is perfect for JISM 2, others say JISM 2 is perfect for her...All I know is that she is my character... a dazzling beauty who is audacious, intelligent, vulnerable, alive!'' Pooja says enthusiastically. CHECK OUT: Sunny Leone isn't the only heroine for Mahesh Bhatt
Sunny Leone is also excited to make her debut in Bollywood. ''I have signed the contract for JISM 2. It will be my debut in this country as an actor and I am really excited. It's an honor to be asked by Mahesh Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt to be in this movie,'' says Sunny Leone.
Mahesh Bhatt first met Sunny Leone on the sets of a reality show to offer her the movie and also gauge whether the actress had the x-factor to play the character.
The debutante says the narrative got her hooked. ''The point when I decided to sign this movie was actually after I heard the story. I think as an actor you should know what you are getting into, you should know if nothing else, at least the basics of the story. And after I heard all the details and the story line is when I really agreed to the character they wanted me to play.''
JISM 2 is expected to go on the floors shortly and will be ready for release by August 2012.
