She made her Bollywood debut playing a porn star in Jism 2 (2012), post which she did an item song in Shootout At Wadala. But now, Canadian import Sunny Leone will be seen in a role very different from her image. Sunny, who has signed a three-film deal with producer Parag Sanghvi, will be seen in
his action-adventure thriller titled Tina And Lolo.
Director Devang Dholakia confirms the news, “I met Sunny when she had just finished shooting Jism 2. She loved the story about two girls on the run and also the action element in it. And as she had already signed a three-film contract, it was easier for me to get her on board. The makers also wanted to start a film with her soon and things fell into place.”
Sunny will be seen in a demure role in the film. “Our film will be U/A. No doubt Sunny looks sexy inherently and you can’t take that away from her, but in our film, she has a great role as well. There is a lot of drama, action and emotions which will show another side of her,” says Devang, adding, “She will play the role of a simple and demure girl who has a certain innocence attached to her, and how circumstances lead to a change in her. My film will break Sunny’s image in the industry.” Devang also believes that people would want to see the ‘new’ Sunny.
The makers plan to start shooting around August end. There are rumours that the film will also star actor Minissha Lamba. “We are in the process of signing and finalising the other actor.
I will be able to give confirmed news in a week,” says Devang.
