Sizzling Sunny Leone and Sachin J Joshi were in Kolkata recently for the promotion of their upcoming film Jackpot. The film also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Makrand Deshpande, Sumit Kumar, Daniel Weber and Bharath in pivotal roles. The film is directed by Kaizad Gustad.
Sachin plays the role of a Goan boy named Francis in the film. He wears his heart on his sleeves. Sunny plays the role of Maaya who is a smart Casino manager. The film is a thriller and shows the dynamics of trust and distrust between the characters. This makes their pairing in the film come alive. The film goes back and forth in time. Who will end up being the Joker and who will come out with Aces is the main story of the film.
In a black pencil skirt and bright blue sleeveless top, Sunny Leone looked sexy and beautiful. The black stiletto heels complimented her look completely. “There is smoldering chemistry between Sachin and me in this film. This is what makes the equation even more interesting. What further add spice to the plot are the shades of grey to each character” said the actress. Working with veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah has been a great learning experience for her. “On the first day I told him to point out if I ever acted good and even bad. But he just smiled” recalls Sunny Leone. The only similarity that the actress found between her character Maaya and the real she is that they look similar. Apart from that they are poles apart by nature. Sachin Joshi added “Maaya and Sunny Leone are both sexy”.
Sunny Leone has no fixed ideas or a wish list of working with any particular director or actor. According to the actress, the script and the role must be promising. The actress feels that she has put in her best efforts in this film and she has acted better than her first film Jism 2. The actress who is busy with the shooting of her other films was tight lipped about them. She did not reveal much on that front.
The film has been shot in Mumbai, Goa and Thailand. The shooting was completed in twenty seven days. Arijit Singh, Akasa Singh, Mikha Singh, Remo Fernandez, Sunidhi Chauhan, Manish Wadhwa, Ramya Iyer and Shreya Ghoshal have lent their voices to the nine tracks in this film. The film releases on the December 13.
