Adult movie star Sunny Leone, who was launched in Bollywood with Jism 2, will not feature in the third outing of the franchise. Apparently the differences between Sunny Leone and the director of the movie Pooja Bhatt started midway through the movie’s filming.
Sunny Leone felt that she was being treated like a newcomer when she was already a familiar name. Pooja Bhatt thought the starlet carried too much excess star baggage with her.
Pooja Bhatt said, “Sunny is not a friend of mine. After 23 years in the industry, I don’t need to be friends with everyone I work with or direct. I got along with Sunny well enough for her to be accepted. This is the first time in history that a porn star has made it in mainstream cinema.”
Pooja Bhatt added, “People tell me that I did not expose her more? At the end of the day I am a 40-year-old and she is little younger than me. You choose who you want to be friends with.” She continued, “Sunny was never meant to be in the third part. With every Jism we will be giving the nation a new fantasy. I was asked the same question when I was making Jism 2, that why not Bipasha Basu who featured in the first part? Now people are asking why not Sunny? It means that the film has worked and we have to raise the stakes with every part.”
The Ponty Chadha link:
Sunny Leone did not get a trial show for her debut film. The starlet, while promoting the film in New Delhi, managed to see it at producer Ponty Chadha’s Chattarpur Farm house – the same place where he was killed last week. About not showing the film to Sunny Leone, Pooja Bhatt explained, “Sunny was in America, so how do I show it to her? The biggest tragedy is that Ponty Chadha who was also producing Jism 3 is no more and all these questions on Sunny are irrelevant to me now.”
