Sleaze specialist, Sunny Leone was the final choice for ‘Prem’s Adda’. The actress has been finalized to be part of an item number in the film. “Director Mahesh Babu and I were in constant touch with the actress. She has agreed and has accepted the offer,” says Prem.
Sunny is currently in Sri Lanka, shooting for ‘Jism 2’. Prem, who could convince Sunny, will now have to get Pooja Bhat’s (director of Jism 2) approval. “We got to know from the actress, that she has signed an agreement with Pooja and as per the clause, she should not do any other film till June 24 nor make any public appearances till her first Hindi film releases. She was supposed to do a special song in a Tamil film too. But, she has cancelled it because of the same issue,” says Prem, who is confident of convincing the lady director.
“I understand from Pooja’s point of view. She is doing a Bollywood film with Sunny in the lead. Though, this special song might be just a guest appearance, it will be headlines nationwide, for the actress. However, we are in talks with Pooja and I’m sure, she will agree to our request,” he explains.
The team of ‘Prem’s Adda’ is ready to wait for Sunny’s dates. “We have still two songs pending and post production work. By the time, she will complete shoot for ‘Jism 2’ and work out the dates for our film,” he says.
It is not the first time that Prem has brought in a Bollywood actress as part of his film. He was successful in bringing Mallika Sherawat for ‘Preethi Eke Bhoomi Melidhe’ and brought in Yana Gupta for ‘Jogi’.
“Even for this film, we had initially approached Bipasha Basu also. But she did not have dates and we can’t keep waiting,” he says.
Is Prem dropping names of heroines from Bollywood only for publicity stunt?
“Today, my career is not running because of any Bollywood heroines. It is just that I want to bring in something new, in every film I do. This is purely for entertainment. We cannot be showing the same thing again and again. My film, ‘Excuse Me’, did not have any sizzling number. There is nothing wrong in approaching. If it works out, well and good. It helps the film,” he signs off.Sunny Leone was the final choice for ‘Prem’s Adda’ item number.
