Well, we really were not expecting this, but now that it has happened, we surely aren't complaining. The latest buzz in B-town is that Poonam Pandey's debut film and Sunny Leone's Jism 2, both will release on the same date.
Pandey's maiden Bollywood venture and Jism 2, both are slated to release on December 12, 2012. Poonam, who has claimed that her movie will be very bold, is quite assured and confident about the success of her film.
"I am neither competing with her nor sharing my audience. She is good at what she does and I am excellent at my job. It is a conscious decision to release our film with Jism 2. I know everyone is going to love my film," the swimsuit model was quoted saying.
Apparently, the 21-year-old actress has charged a whopping sum of 1 crore for the film. Producer of her forthcoming flick, Aditya Bhatia was quoted saying, "We have full faith in Poonam and are therefore riding so much money on her. We have paid her a crore and the budget of the film is around Rs. 7-8cr. Amit Saxena, who directed Jism is directing our film."
Talking about both the films releasing on the same date Bhatia stated, "It will be a clash of the Titans, and will make big noise. And as content is the king, we are sure about our product’s success."
However, Pooja Bhatt, the director of Jism 2 was unaware about Pandey's debut venture releasing on the same date. "I’m not aware of the film. But I wish them all the best! It’s a free world and people are free to release their films as and when they deem fit!," Pooja was quoted saying.
While the star cast of Poonam's film has been kept under wraps, Leone's film stars Arunoday Singh and Randeep Hooda as the male leads.
