Porn movie actor Sunny Leone is taking her Bollywood debut very seriously, and has started taking Hindi language classes, according to Indian media reports.
The Indo-Canadian actor was little known in India until her entry in India’s most popular reality show – Bigg Boss.
While she did not win the show, the 29-year old adult-film-starrer gathered enough attention to arouse the interest of Bollywood film-maker Mahesh Bhatt, who entered the Bigg Boss house to offer her a role in his upcoming project.
Leone, who was only too eager to act in a Bhatt movie, did not lose any time in starting her Bollywood career soon after the Bigg Boss show was over.
She has now started working on Jism 2 – a Mahesh Bhatt production managed by producer’s daughter – Pooja Bhatt in Jaipur.
Leone is already feeling at home in Bollywood, if her Twitter updates are anything to go by.
“Can’t wait to start shooting today,” she tweeted on day one of the shoot. “This is so much fun. Living the Dream with Jism 2.”
Ironically, Leone used her Twitter account to promote her porn movies almost until she arrived in India for Bigg Boss.
Leone, who plays a lead role with two male protagonists, has done well for herself considering that she was a non-entity in India and a porn star overseas.
Joining her will beÂ Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh in lead roles while Imran Zahid plays a supporting role. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the plot is a love-triangle, as is mostly with Bhatt movies, with the undertone of lust, betrayal and suspense.
â€œSunny is working hard to make every shot looks exquisite,” a unit member was quoted in an Indian newspaper.
“Everyone on the set is surprised by her quick learning capabilites, as she is doing a great job at learning her Hindi dialogues.â€
The Jism 2 team is currently shooting in Jaipur and will soon be in India’s capital city of Delhi.
