According to latest reports, Bollywood filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt has decided to indeed enter the Bigg Boss House this week, to offer pornstar Sunny Leone, the lead role in his next movie Jism 2.
“I am not casting her for her body, but I see that there is loneliness and a heartbroken soul behind that smile. The entertainment business itself is not a cakewalk, so the porn business would have been a really tough ride for her,” Bhatt told a news agency over phone from Mumbai.
Bhatt said that he loved casting people who are real and who have gone through highs and lows to reach a stature where people look up to them for their hard work. His film Jism released in 2003 made debutants John Abraham and Bipasha Basu an overnight success in Bollywood.
Bhatt has admitted to have also approached Bipasha Basu and Mallika Sherawat for the role in the Jism sequel, but has said that things didn’t work out. Let’s see, if Sunny accepts this offer and turns it into magical card for her Bollywood debut.
Earlier, celebrity publicist Dale Bhagwagar who is a specialist with Bigg Boss, having handled the media for maximum number of controversial celebrities on reality shows including Shilpa Shetty (Big Brother), Ashmit Patel, Rakhi Sawant, Kashmera Shah, Sherlyn Chopra, Diana Hayden (Bigg Boss), had said, “If Mr Mahesh Bhatt is really keen on signing porn star Sunny Leone, what better platform than Bigg Boss to announce it.”
“We already know that Sunny is keen on a Bollywood career. Bigg Boss is India’s biggest reality show and if Mahesh Bhatt manages to get into the House of Scandal and convince her to sign on the dotted line, imagine what a national sensation this could create for the movie as well as for Sunny’s impending Bollywood debut,” Dale had added.
