    Jannat 2 is produced by Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt.

Kunal Deshmukh admits that the sensuality factor is high in his forthcoming movie Jannat, which has Emraan Hashmi in the lead role. But at the same time he clarifies that he doesn't consider kissing a bold gesture.

"There are no bold scenes in the film. I don't think a liplock is bold anymore. This film is not pushing on sex. I wanted a small love making sequence and a couple of lip locks which Esha Gupta was comfortable as an actor," Deshmukh told IANS.

Earlier Deshmukh wanted to cast Prachi Desai in Jannat 2, which is being produced by Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt, but later finalised Esha who was comfortable doing the courageous scenes.

"When I first pitched the story to Prachi, the sensuality was a little low and she was very clear about what she is willing to do and what she is not willing to do. I was told by Bhatt sir that we need to step up in terms of sensuality in the film because Bhatt cinema requires little bit of skin show, little bit of lip-lock because it is expected from an Emraan film," said Deshumkh.

"I had a conversation with Prachi and I am glad that she made things clear about what she is willing to do. Then we parted ways. No point on having an ugly conversation on the sets," added the 30-year-old who earlier directed Tum Mile and Jannat.

Jannat 2 also features Randeep Hooda and it is slated for a May 4 release.
