MUMBAI: Will Deepa Mehta make a film on the real life story of Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone who entered Bollywood with Mahesh Bhatt’s Jism 2?
According to a report in the Times of India, Sunny Leone has been approached by Deepa Mehta’s photo-journalist brother Dilip Mehta with a proposal to make a film on her life.
But the report said there is no clear signal yet from Sunny about the proposed film.
However, Sunny’s husband, Daniel Weber, has been quoted as saying, “Sunny and I have been approached regarding a documentary about our lives and have been in talks with a Canadian production company (Hamilton Mehta Productions) and Dilip Mehta. We will have more information about the shooting schedule in the next 30 days.” Mahesh Bhatt, the man who gave Sunny her Bollywood break, has been quoted as saying, “If a documentary is being made on her, it is because sin is photogenic and it sells.”
After doing Jism 2, Sunny was signed by Ekta Kapoor for Ragini MMS 2 and Kaizad Gustad for Jackpot. She is currently shooing for the two films.
