Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt will soon enter the Bigg Boss House. Not as a contestant though. He will enter the house to offer his upcoming film, Jism 2, to Indo-Canadian adult film star Sunny Leone, a contestants in the reality TV show.
Bhatt says, “My daughter Pooja always expressed desire to work with Sunny, even for Jism 1. We thought it would be great to talk to her for Jism 2 as we feel she suits the bill. We wanted to approach an actor who not only has the physical attributes, but also the emotional ‘edge’ to carry off complexity of the role. We know being a porn star is not easy as there are hardships and loneliness behind the allurement that comes with being a porn star.”
He adds, “The story of Jism 2 is about the journey of a girl from dark to light. Let’s see how she responds to the offer.” On being asked why he chose Bigg Boss as the platform for the same, Bhatt says, “We can’t keep waiting for her to exit the show. So, we thought it would be best to meet her inside the house.” Leone, 30, too has expressed interest in Bollywood: “I would like to work here.”
