Till date in the career of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt the movie ‘Arth’ remains monumental. The director had gained both critical praise and box-office success with the movie.
His daughter Pooja Bhatt, who is gearing up for the release of her movie ‘Jism 2’, hopes that ‘Jism 2’ turns out to be her ‘Arth’.
“I think and hope that Jism 2 will be my Arth. It is a coincidence that I am at the same stage like my father. Even he had four films like Naya Daur, Manzilein Aur Bhi Hain and others before Arth but none of them did well,” said the director.
Pooja Bhatt made her directorial debut in 2004 with the movie ‘Paap’, which starred John Abraham and Udita Goswami in lead roles. Later director went on to director other bold movies like ‘Holiday’, ‘Dhokha’ and ‘Kajraa Re’, which all performed poorly at the box-office.
Actress turned director also feels that there is a similarity between her ‘Jism 2’ and her father’s ‘Arth’.
“I think somewhere what is special about 'Arth' is that finally the lady makes a choice of not to be with the husband and not be with the lover. In 'Jism 2', Izna (Sunny Leone) is a porn star and by the end she makes a choice that redeems her character. So we are talking about choices and that is the similarity between the two movies,” she said.
The director hopes that movie is loved all and ends up changing her fortunes.
“I think I am at a stage where as a director I have got nothing to lose as I have had four flops behind me. I have a brand (Jism) about which there is excitement and interest among the public. The film is looking good, music is liked by all,” she concluded.
‘Jism 2’ stars adult movie stars Sunny Leone, Arunoday Singh and Randeep Hooda in lead roles. The movie is all set to release on August 3.
