Mumbai: Ever since the raunchy poster of ‘Jism 2’ was unveiled, speculations were rife about the identity of the girl under the wet white sheet.
The film’s heroine, Sunny Leone and the makers of the film, Pooja Bhatt and Mahesh Bhatt remained mum about the poster. Perhaps to confuse, Sunny in fact posted a similar picture of herself on social networking site Twitter which made many of us believe that Sunny is the one who posed in the poster.
A leading daily has revealed that it is not Sunny Leone but Nathalia Kaur who has posed in the titillating poster of ‘Jism 2’.The director of the film, Pooja Bhatt revealed, “A year ago, when it was being speculated that the film will feature either Bipasha Basu or Mallika Sherawat, I decided to whet people’s appetite with a sexy poster.”
Bhatt went and approached photographer Joy Datta who had shots of some Brazilian models. “I chose Nathalia from among the ones he showed me,” said Pooja.
The poster was then shot at Pooja’s farmhouse during the monsoon season much before Leone was signed for the film. Now for those coming in late, Nathalia Kaur featured in Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘Department’ in an item song called ‘Dan Dan Cheeni’.
Interestingly, Varma had approached Pooja to seek permission to ask Sunny to feature in an item song for his film, which Pooja refused. Varma then went on to sigg Nathalia and proudly announced how she is his discovery.
