It's an honour to be in 'Jism 2': Sunny Leone

Video: Lehren

Indian Canadian porn star Sunny Leone says she is honoured to get a chance to work with the Bhatts, who have given her the lead role in the much-talked about "Jism 2".

"It will be my debut in the country as an actress and I am really excited. Pooja Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt are the people in the industry who are very respected and well-known. It is an honour after knowing who they are and their company, it is an honour to be asked by both of them to be in this movie," Sunny said in a video posted by Mahesh Bhatt on YouTube.

Bhatt revealed Thursday that Sunny, a Punjabi born in Canada, is the mystery girl in the first poster of the movie. The rest of the cast, including two male protagonists, is yet to be finalised.

Sunny became popular in India after her stint in controversial reality show "Bigg Boss 5".

The mystery girl behind the wet white sheet in the "Jism 2" poster has finally been unveiled. Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt confirmed Thursday that the leading lady of the movie is Indian Canadian porn star Sunny Leone.

"Sunny Leone is the heroine of Pooja Bhatt's 'JISM 2'. Now watch this brave girl unfold her soul and rise higher and higher," Bhatt wrote on his Twitter page.

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 Bhatt entered the show briefly to meet her. But the nature of her role was kept under wraps so far.

Leone is upbeat about bagging the lead role.

"Hey everyone! So excited to be working on 'JISM 2'. Remember to follow @jism2 to get all the movie news first," Sunny, whose real name is Karen Malhotra, tweeted.

While Sunny plays the female lead, the film will have two male protagonists and Bhatt's actress-turned-filmmaker daughter Pooja, the producer of "Jism 2" is in a dilemma over whom to sign.

"While my dream that is #JISM2 comes closer to realization with @sunnyleone my nightmare with regards to casting my two leading men begins," Pooja posted.

"Finding one 'man' in this business is tough enough and we need to cast two in #JISM2! I suspect strongly that it is masochism that drives me," she added.

Sunny's entry into the "Bigg Boss 5" created a quite a stir, with the Broadcasting Content Complaints Council (BCCC) reportedly asking the Colors channel to ensure that Leone does not use the show to her advantage.
