Director Pooja Bhatt has ended the mystery about the naked girl behind the wet white sheet in the teaser poster of “Jism 2” by confirming Canadian X-rated film star Sunny Leone as the lead.
Leone came to the limelight in India with her stint in the fifth season of controversial reality show “Bigg Boss.” She was offered a role in the movie when Mahesh Bhatt entered the show briefly to meet her. But it was not official.
“Promised the mid-night hour but wanted to savor the moment and joy of announcing that Sunny Leone has signed Jism 2! May the speculation end,” Pooja wrote on Twitter Jan. 19.
Leone, whose real name is reportedly Karen Malhotra, was also upbeat about bagging the lead role. While Leone plays the female lead, the film will have two male protagonists, and actress-turned-filmmaker Pooja, who is also the producer of “Jism 2,” is in a dilemma over whom else to sign.
