The actress showered praises on Mahesh Bhatt on Twitter and that did not go down well with the Jism 2 production team.
Sunny Leone wrote on Twitter, "Thank you Sir for everything & directing me in all my dialogue scenes. You made it easy 4 me to follow your vision!!"
Bhatt senior did not like it and told a website, "Jism 2 is a Pooja Bhatt film in its absolute sense. It was born and fashioned by her passion. We all worked under her gaze."
Another industry insider tweeted, "How can you say this Sunny? I was on the set. Pooja directed you not Bhatt saab. I am shocked by you."
Mahesh Bhatt told a leading daily, "Sunny is American and she does not know the manner in which film are made in India, and that is probably what led to the confusion. I helped Sunny in her dialogues and nuances. But please be clear that it all happens under the gaze of the director. The director of the film has the final say. From its conceptualization, right down to the final scene shot, Jism 2 remains Pooja Bhatt's film and no one else's."
Poor Sunny Leone did not realise that her small mistake can create such a furor!
