New Delhi, Dec 1 (IANS) Sunny Leone knows that she has a language problem but still agreed to work in 'Jism 2', filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt says, adding 'she categorically told me that choosing to be a porn star was her personal choice'.
'She is well aware that language could act as barrier, but is ready to put in that extra effort. She has agreed to do 'Jism 2', which will be made under Pooja Bhatt's banner, Fish Eye Network. Now they will work out things with Sunny's agent and work out the nitty-gritties,' the 61-year-old told after his brief visit into the 'Bigg Boss 5' house.
Born to a Punjabi family in Ontario, Sunny has appeared in various reality shows in the US, and was named among the world's top 12 porn stars by fashion magazine Maxim in 2010.
'It was a memorable meeting with Sunny. Loved every bit of my stay in that house. She is such a sweet girl, she is very honest and beautiful -- not only physically but her heart is also very pure and genuine,' Bhatt told IANS on phone from Mumbai.
'She says things the way they are. I didn't find her manipulative or hiding behind any fake mask. Very categorically she told me without any hesitation that choosing her profession (being a porn star) was her personal choice and she has no regrets about it.'
Bhatt also says the 30-year-old is keen to make a mark in Bollywood.
'She is very keen to make a mark in Hindi film industry. She spoke to me at length that - in a year she shoots for two adult films and the rest of the time she wants to do here.'
Released in 2003, 'Jism' was an unexpected box office success and made debutants John Abraham and Bipasha Basu known names in the film industry.
Sunny, who was born as Karen Malhotra, wants to win Color' reality show 'Bigg Boss 5'. But at the same time she is concerned about her image, informs Bhatt.
'She is very competitive and wants to win the show. She is also very concerned in what light she is being shown to the viewers and how people are taking her.
'There was a moment when I and Sunny were talking and suddenly she got very emotional. I touched her head and she was on the verge of crying but managed to control her tears,' he said.
Bhatt also revealed that only two people know about Sunny's professional reality in the house.
The episode showing Bhatt's entry into the house will be aired Thursday.
