Sunny Leone’s Twitter praises leave her in a mess!
Mumbai: Canadian porn star Sunny Leone, who is on the threshold of making her mainstream debut into Bollywood, has been on the receiving end of a considerable amount of flak lately. The actress, whose ‘Jism 2’ would help her introduce herself in the Hindi film industry, had recently been all praises for Mahesh Bhatt. And that did not go down well with the others!
The adult film actress had tweeted about Mahesh Bhatt some time back, “Thank you Sir for everything & directing me in all my dialogue scenes. You made it easy 4 me to follow your vision!!”
The tweet, however, ruffled up many feathers in the production team, including that of Bhatt Senior, and the latter responded with “’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.”
Sunny’s comments were meant in good humour, and were directed at Mahesh Bhatt for helping her with dialogues in the film. Another tweet from an insider read, “How can you say this Sunny? I was on the set. Pooja directed you not Bhatt saab. I am shocked by you.”
Mahesh Bhatt, however, speaking to a leading daily, later clarified the mess. The veteran filmmaker said, “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. You see here, there is the director and then there is someone called a dialogue director who helps the actors along in the nuances of their dialogue delivery. For instance, there are many Hindi films shot in the south and the Southern actors do not know how to say things in Hindi. So a dialogue director comes in handy in such instances. I was playing the part in Pooja`s Jism 2 considering that I am also the writer of the film. 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.”
