MUMBAI: Back in 2004 Neha Dhupia created quite a furore playing the prostitute with several male admirers painting the town red and ‘panting’ her gown purple in Deepak Shivdasani’s Julie.
Now Shivdasani is back with a sequel starring Sakshi Chaudhary.
This Gladrags model and wannabe actress is already making her presence felt in Bollywood. A few months ago she signed a 3-film deal with producer Feroz Nadiadwala, including the lead in Hera Pheri 3 opposite John Abraham.
Julie 2 we hear would be the story of not a prostitute but an actress.
Says a source close to the newcomer, “Considering how controversial and steamy Neha Dhupia’s role was in Julie Sakshi was apprehensive about the role. But then she heard her character in Julie 2…and flipped.”
It’s a role apparently inspired by Rekha.
Sakshi Chaudhary says, “I admit I was apprehensive. But when I heard the script I agreed at once .It is a very performance-oriented film. Certainly not the kind of character a newcomer gets to play.”
When quizzed about the skin show, Sakshi says, “It is a glamorous role. But nothing vulgar about it.”
However a source lets out that Sakshi would be required to do many bold scenes. ‘She’d be riding a motorcycle in a bikini,” says the source.
(Hopefully she would have a helmet on).
When asked which of her films Julie 2 or Hera Pheri 3 would get released first Sakshi said, “I’ve signed Hera Pheri first and I’ve signed four other films which I can’t talk about as per the contracts. Whichever film is completed first would be released first.”
