New Delhi, November 21, 2011
Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone, who is taking part in Colors' controversial reality show Bigg Boss Season 5, has been approached by filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt for Murder 3. The film will star his son and ex Bigg Boss housemate Rahul Bhatt as the male lead.

Bhatts had earlier approached the adult film star for another film but things didn't work out at that point of time. "Mahesh Bhatt wanted to launch his son Rahul opposite Sunny Leone in a film titled Blue Film. At the time, Leone had no intentions of making a Bollywood debut. She had turned down the offer back then. However, now, she has made it pretty clear that she is game for Hindi cinema. Mahesh is apparently reviving Blue Film at the moment," a source told Subhash K Jha.

Rahul Bhatt told Jha: "Yes, my father was going to launch me with Sunny Leone in Blue Film. But it didn't materialise. About the project being revived now, I am not denying it. But you will have to ask my father. I am a big fan of Leone."

Mahesh Bhatt admitted casting Sunny with his son but the project is no longer Blue Film. "That's the cast for Murder 3," the filmmaker told Jha.

Will Sunny Leone, who has expressed desire to work with Salman Khan, settle for Rahul Bhatt? If that happens, the third installment will surely be the steamiest of the Murder franchise.
