MUMBAI: Director of ‘Jannat 2’, Kunal Deshmukh agrees that the sensuality factor is high in his movie. Before Esha Gupta, Prachi Desai was the director’s choice for the lead role opposite ‘serial kisser’ Emraan Hashmi. However, later Esha Gupta was finalized because she was comfortable doing the courageous scenes.
"When I first pitched the story to Prachi, 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 liplock because it is expected from an Emraan 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," said the 30 year old director to the press.
Not holding on to any issue, Deshmukh added, "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."
Jannat 2 also featuring Randeep Hooda is slated for release tomorrow, May 4.
