Bigg Boss 5: Mahesh Bhatt to enter house on November 30

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt will enter the Bigg Boss 5 house on Wednesday to officially offer adult film actress Sunny Leone the lead role in his upcoming film, Jism 2.

The buzz is that Bhatt will also reveal Sunny's identity as a porn star to the housemates on the show. Sunny so far has introduced herself as a Hollywood actress and model.

With Jism 2, Bhatt also plans to launch his son Rahul in Bollywood. Rahul incidentally was a Big Boss participant during season 4.

Bhatt will be seen on the show in Thursday's episode and will spend only a few hours inside the house. Sources say he wants to "observe" Sunny before finally signing her for the film, which is a sequel to his 2003 blockbuster Jism, starring Bipasha Basu and John Abraham.

"Bigg Boss has emerged as a great marketing platform and the right place to launch a film. I plan to offer a role to Sunny and also want to reach out to a wide target audiences for my film," Bhatt said.

The film will be directed by Bhatt's daughter Pooja and has been talked about for the last few months. The Bhatt brothers - Mahesh and Mukesh - have been looking for a lead actress for quite some time now.

The initial buzz suggested Mallika Sherawat would replace Bipasha Basu because the latter had reportedly acted pricey.

"People are asking why Sunny? She has great star power. When I saw her on the show I realised she has the right attitude for the role," he said.

"Pooja wants a star who is vibrant and sensuous. I want an actress who not only has the physical attributes but also the emotional edge to carry off the complex role," he added.

Sunny, who has been staying in the Bigg Boss house for over a week now, has made it clear she is in the house for an image makeover. But not revealing her identity as an adult film star. She has tried to ensure that the housemates know her as a person first.

"I don't want people to judge me by my profession," Sunny said in one of the episodes, inside the confession room of Bigg Boss 5.
