Wednesday, 1st August 02:00 PM IST It's not Sunny Leone who you see in the “Jism 2” poster. The visual that'sraised temperatures much before the release of this erotic thriller by PoojaBhatt, is actually of Nathalia Kaur, who you saw gyrating in Ram Gopal Varma's “Department”.
One look at the film, and you'll get to know that the silhouette of the womanis not of Leone. Says Pooja Bhatt who we contacted to verify our doubt, "Ayear ago, when it was being speculated that the film will feature eitherBipasha Basu or Mallika Sherawat, I decided to whet people's appetite with asexy poster. I called my friend, photographer Joy Datta, who deals with duskyBrazilian models, for options. I chose Nathalia from amongst the ones he showedme."
The poster was shot at Pooja's farmhouse during the monsoon, much before Leonewas even signed up. Later, Leone was shown the poster of Nathalia, seeing whichshe decided to sign the film.
At the same time, Ram Gopal Varma, knowing that Pooja had signed up Leone,wanted her for an item number for his film. Pooja refused, and Varma eventuallywent to Nathalia for the item number, proudly announcing her as his discovery.In fact, after seeing the poster of “Jism2” which actually has Nathalia, Varma even called Pooja to saythat "I would be the first man standing in a queue to buy a ticket!"
Little did he know that Pooja would love to tell him today that she haddiscovered Nathalia one year before he found her.
