Mahesh Bhatt: I want to cast Sunny Leone for emotional edge, not body

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt enters the Bigg Boss 5 house on Monday and says he has decided to offer pornstar Sunny Leone, who is also participating in the reality show, the lead role in his movie Jism 2. “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,” Bhatt told. Jism released in 2003 was an unexpected box office success and made debutantes John Abraham and Bipasha Basu known names in the film industry. Bhatt feels Sunny has an emotional ‘edge’ which could work wonders for Jism 2 as it narrates the story of a woman who transcends from the ‘body’ to the ‘soul’. Born to a Punjabi family in Ontario, Sunny was seen in various reality shows in the US, and was named among the world’s top 12 pornstars by fashion magazine Maxim in 2010.
