Richa Chadda, however, refused to do the lesbian act with Sunny Leone, the daily further reports.
Produced by Ekta Kapoor, Ragini MMS 2 is a sequel to 2011 horror-thriller Ragini MMS. Bhushan Patel will direct the movie.
Ragini MMS was one of those small unassuming ventures by Ekta Kapoor when she released it last year. However the surprise success of the film has made her all the more ambitious about nurturing it further as a franchise. Though roping in of Sunny Leone has already made the film big enough on paper, now she also wants the adult star's 'performance' to do the talking.
"Ragini MMS as a brand has two core constituents for it - sex and horror. For the former, there is Sunny on board and for the latter there is Bhushan Patel as a director who recently made a successful debut with 1920 - Evil Returns which is a hit. While this combination coupled with Ekta's marketing prowess would have been good enough to make the film hot much before its release, she wants more. She has allocated good budget for the pre-production as well", says a source connected to the film. As of now as a bare minimum there is a 15 day workshop being planned with Sunny. Also, indications are that there would be some pre-release publicity created around the film's launch as well.
