Mahesh Bhatt continues to be gung ho about JISM 2. To begin with, not just did he bring himself on board as a story and screenplay writer, he also made sure that the film turned out to be yet another shocking and dramatic tale directed by daughter Pooja Bhatt.
''Let me very candid here; JISM 2 is going to be head and shoulders above what the original JISM was as far as the dramatic structuring that it boasts of,' he declares, 'It is far more mature and efficiently created screenplay. Also, it kind of deals with contemporary man-woman situation; more so since our film involves two men (Randeep Hooda, Arunoday Singh) and one woman (Sunny Leone). It talks about the world that we live in and complex times that we find ourselves in. The film carries true resonance of my conviction, belief and understanding in the subject.''

No wonder, it took him two years to pen down the final draft of the screenplay.
''That's true; it isn't a film that was borne overnight. It required good enough time for the scenes and situations to come out,'' he says, ''JISM 2 has turned out to be a film which I have enjoyed writing after a very long time. Credit to that also goes to Pooja since she was continuously pushing me to explore myself all over again. She didn’t want to settle for anything lesser. The results are there to be seen.''
We are waiting for that as well once the film hits the screens on 3rd August.
