Mahesh Bhatt casts Sunny Leone “Not for her Body”
Acclaimed Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is due to enter the “Bigg Boss 5″ house Today and says he has decided to offer porn star Sunny Leone, who is also participating in the reality show, the lead role in his movie ” Jism 2″.
With tongue in cheek, Bhatt says, “I am not casting her for her body, but I see that loneliness and heartbroken soul that is behind that smile. The entertainment business itself is not a cakewalk, so the porn business would have been a really tough ride for her.”
“I love casting people who are real. Sunny is being shown in a bright light with an exotic image on television, but I sensed that she must have gone through a lot to earn a name in an industry which people don’t appreciate,” adds the Saransh and Arth director.
“Jism” released in 2003 was box office surprise and made the debutants John Abraham and Bipasha Basu to live-in together since last 9 years. That they broke-up has nothing to do with “Jism 2”.
