Jannta 2 which releases today, has a high factor of sensuality, admits filmmaker Kunal Deshmukh. However, according to the director, kissing is not a bold gesture. The film stars Emraan Hashmi in the lead role.
“There are no bold scenes in the film. I don’t think a liplock is bold anymore. This film is not pushing on sex. I wanted a small love making sequence and a couple of lip locks which Esha Gupta was comfortable as an actor,” Kunal Deshmukh told..
Deshmukh’s first choice of actress preferance was Prachi Desai. But since she wasn’t very comfortable doing the love making scenes, Esha Gupta was finalized.
“When I first pitched the story to Prachi, the sensuality was a little low and she was very clear about what she is willing to do and what she is not willing to do. I was told by Bhatt sir that we need to step up in terms of sensuality in the film because Bhatt cinema requires little bit of skin show, little bit of lip-lock because it is expected from an Emraan film,” said Kunal Deshumkh.
“I had a conversation with Prachi and I am glad that she made things clear about what she is willing to do. Then we parted ways. No point on having an ugly conversation on the sets,” added the 30-year-old.
“Jannat 2″ releases today, May 4.
