Adult movie star Sunny Leone feels actress-director Pooja Bhatt has taken a big risk by casting her in Jism 2.
"I think Pooja took a bigger risk than me by casting me in the film. I am happy that I got this film and I think I have done my best. I hope people will like it," Sunny told PTI in an interview.
Leone's participation in controversial reality show Bigg Boss led to her entry in Bollywood.
She will be seen in erotic thriller Jism 2, directed by Pooja Bhatt. Sunny is paired opposite Arunoday Singh and Randeep Hooda in the movie, releasing this Friday.
The American actress said working in a mainstream film like Jism 2 was quite different than featuring in an adult movie and the intimate scenes in the movie were in context to the story.
"In fact the challenging part was not to blink in close-up shots, and Pooja wanted me to do it perfectly. Being in an adult film is completely different from mainstream films," she said.
For Sunny, learning Hindi became a bit easier. "I had voice and dialogue coaches every day for hours. The easiest thing was lines as I spent months learning Hindi, which I had never done earlier. Speaking Hindi became easier for me than my body movements," she said.
Sunny has a production house (Sun Lust Pictures) based in the US, and even if she is not there, the company will continue to exist.
"I have a production company that will always be there. I am not in the movies but my company releases it all the time. This year probably I am not going to do a movie there as I am here in India," she said.
"My production company releases three to five films a month. We produce, direct and distribute adult material to countries where it is allowed," she added.
