Dan Dan girl Nathalia Kaur has moved to the next level.
After starring in an item song that wasn't very impressive, Nathalia has bagged the third installment of the successful Jism series. Will she be able to outshine Sunny Leone?
“When it was revealed that it was Nathalia who shot for the poster, Mahesh Bhatt saab texted me about casting her in the next installment. You just can’t ignore his suggestions,” Pooja Bhatt told Mid Day.
Unlike the previous two editions, the third part will star two leading ladies. So will the Jism 2 girl Sunny Leone be seen in the film?
“It is too early to tell. When I was making the second film, everyone asked if Bipasha would be in it and now everyone is asking if Sunny will be in the next. The most exciting thing for me is to create a new fantasy,” Pooja told the tabloid.

JISM 2 RIDING HIGH ON SUCCESS
Sunny Leone's Jism 2 rakes in moolah

HT's review of Jism 2
I thought that Jism 2, which is a sequel only because it also has sex, might push the envelope again. After all, it has a real-life porn star Sunny Leone, playing a porn star Izna. But please push aside all thoughts of Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience, which has a real-life porn star playing a high-class hooker. Here, Izna's career choice has no connection with the story, which is, hands down, one of the silliest in recent history. Izna is hired by a secret agency to seduce a killer, who was also her ex-lover, Kabir, played by Randeep Hooda. Her payment to be a honey trap is Rs. 10 crore, and she informs her employers that she travels "only first class". But somewhere along the way, her agency contact, Ayaan, played by Arunoday Singh, also falls in love with her. So in some scenes Ayaan tells Izna in an urgent voice, "Let's meet and strategise." (I laughed out loud). In others, he watches her as she sleeps, running a torchlight over her body. READ MORE
Critics' Verdict: Sunny Leone shines, script lackluster in Jism 2
Sunny Leone is the USP of the film and impresses as an actor. The story of Jism 2 unfolds at a leisurely pace, which shouldn't be the case if it's meant to be a thriller. The strikingly composed and lit frames add to the film's strengths, feel critics. FULL REPORT
A film which was made in 7 crores doing business of 21 crores, that too in Ramzan and without any major stars is outstanding to say the least.
'Bigger hit than Murder 2 and Jannat 2'
Jism 2 has broken sale records of even Murder 2 and Jannat 2 in Punjab, UP and Delhi with regards to first weekend sales. And Murder 2 and Jannat 2 were two of the biggest hits to have come out of the Bhatt stable! Champagne popping at my end!
'What 100 crore club? We Bhatts have our own club'
With regard to entering the 100 crore club, I don't make movies for 40-60 crores plus that give me a turnover of 100 crores. I make films for 7 crores plus that do a turnover of between 25-50 crores. They can keep their club. We Bhatts rule our own!
