Actor Shekhar Suman, is keen on having Indo-Canadian adult film star Sunny Leone opposite his son Adhyayan in his debut directorial film.
Shekhar will be wearing director's hat with 'Heartless' that will feature his son Adhyayan in the lead. And the actor-turned-director hopes to have Sunny in the film. "I think direction is very exciting thing. Like from choosing the script to casting to music to marketing. The film that I am directing is a medical thriller, called 'Heartless'.
I am doing this film with Adhyayan and hopefully it will have Sunny Leone. I will be meeting her soon. I hope she becomes part of the film," Shekhar told PTI.
"The role demanded her hence I want to cast her. The role that I have envisaged requires a girl like her. It wanted a girl like her. She is a very pretty looking girl," he said. Earlier, there was a buzz that Giselli Monteiro of 'Love Aaj Kal' fame was to do the film.
Sunny, who shot to limelight after being part of reality show, 'Bigg Boss', will be seen in Mahesh Bhatt's 'Jism 2' and Ekta Kapoor's 'Ragini MMS'.
Ask him if he is looking to explore the oomph factor of Sunny, Shekhar says, "I am not going towards oomph factor. I like her because she is pretty and exotic looking. Oomph factor will be there but it is not like I have to expose her.
I think the oomph factor is on face, eyes and smile." Reportedly, 'Heartless' is a remake of 2007 Hollywood hit supernatural-conspiracy thriller 'Awake' and Adhyayan is slated to play Hayden Christensen's part in the adaptation.
"The direction plan will hopefully happen this year. I want to start it this year. My script is complete and my casting is in process. I can't reveal the story," he said. PTI
