Mahesh Bhatt might be announcing from rooftops that Sunny Leone is the lead for Jism 2, but his daughter Pooja Bhatt, the director of the film says that she hasn't yet finalised the glamorous pornstar for the film.
"I ain't letting my secret out. There's quite a bit of speculation about Sunny Leone and Bipasha being part of the film, but I haven't finalised the name yet. Hopefully, we'll be able to make an official announcement soon. But we had a positive meeting with Sunny," Pooja informed TOI.
The lady seen in the first look of Jism 2 is not necessarily Leone. "We must not forget that Jism doesn't really depend on the face. It's a brand name that works. It is sensual as opposed to Murder, which was sexual," Pooja was quoted by the daily as saying.
Pooja denies Rahul Bhatt was ever considered for the role.
Jism 2 is a sequel to the 2003 release which starred Bipasha Basu and John Abraham in the lead.
