Is ‘Jism 2′ Sunny Leone’s autobiography?
Now this one hasn’t really come as a surprise but would make heads turn for sure. It has just been revealed that Sunny Leone, who would be making her feature film debut with ‘Jism 2‘, is actually playing a pornstar in the film. This isn’t all as there are also indications that the film may have a lot of elements that would be stemming out of her real life.
“Though Bhatts have been spinning tales around Sunny being in their mind for the ‘Jism’ franchise for the last 10 years, the fact remains that ‘Jism 2‘ was actually conceived keeping her in mind. There was no Bipasha Basu or Mallika Sherawat who was even considered for the role. Reason being that the character Sunny plays in the film is that of a pornstar and since none of the Indian actresses, especially the established ones, could have been expected to wilfully step into the role, it was a given that Sunny got the coveted part”, informs our source.
Of course Sunny was thrilled to know that there was a film being made with a central character being a pornstar and was more than glad to step in. While the entire episode around her entry into the film through ‘Big Boss’ did lead many to wonder if it was all staged, the fact remains that at the end of it all this proved to be a good platform for her real life profession to be brought in front of the public.
Though the makers are not yet commenting on ‘Jism 2‘ being based on Sunny’s life, they do confirm that she is indeed playing a pornstar in the film who uses her body to make money and get ahead in life.
“See, Bipasha was of course fantastic in ‘Jism’ and has this strong sexual awareness. However for ‘Jism 2′ we needed someone who was a part of the adult business. While actresses were obviously out of the question, fortunately or unfortunately we don’t have any established pornstar from India. We felt that Sunny was just the right fit since she is the kind of woman we had in mind for the film”, says Pooja Bhatt.
While the film tells the take of a pornstar and an assassin, we would be interested to know if Sunny indeed had an encounter with any such killer in real life as well.
