With each passing year, the Hindi film industry is getting bolder. So are our filmmakers and producers more keen on hiring International stars and models for desi films?

When filmmaker Pooja Bhatt went a step ahead to hire an International porn star for her upcoming film Jism 2, she had to face tremendous criticisms from every nook and corner of the nation. However, what makes us scratch our heads is that why Pooja chose Sunny Leone for her film!

Sunny Leone struck overnight fame with the popular reality show Bigg Boss 5 on Colors. This helped her make her foray in the Bollywood industry. Pooja Bhatt, who did not hesitate a bit to make such a bold choice explained us the reason behind her decision. Speaking to a leading daily, Bhatt said that she had earlier gone to Bipasha Basu for the film, but, later, they decided that they wanted a new face. "We decided to go with a new face because we thought India needed a new fantasy and Sunny Leone was just the right fit," she said.

It was earlier believed that either Bipasha Or Malllika Sherawat would be the final female lead for Jism 2. Bipasha had earlier acted in Jism, while Mallika was the female lead in Murder. But, the Bhatts played it really smart by making an unusual choice. We wonder if Ms Leone's 'porn star' image might help Jism 2 to make it big at the Box Office.
