Jism 2 is an upcoming Bollywood erotic thriller film to be directed by Pooja Bhatt. It is the sequel to the film Jism which had John Abraham and Bipasha Basu in lead roles. The film marks the debut of Indo-Canadian pornographic actress, businesswoman and model, Sunny Leone in Bollywood. Jism 2 was launched on 1 December 2011, on popular Indian television show Bigg Boss, making the launch a first time ever in the history of Indian Cinema. Mahesh Bhatt compared Jism 2 to Italian romance drama Last Tango In Paris.
A porn star (Sunny Leone) is hired by a dashing intelligence officer (Arunoday Singh) to become a 'Honey-trap' for a dreaded assassin (Randeep Hooda). In doing so, she not only has to confront her bitter-sweet past, but is also forced to make an impossible choice - one that will put her own life in double jeopardy.
Producer-director Mahesh Bhatt entered the house of Bigg Boss for a couple of hours to present a contract deal to Sunny to cast her as the lead actress in this sequel of the film Jism. The film will be directed by his producer-actress daughter Pooja Bhatt While Leone plays the female lead, the film will have two male protagonists. Currently Pooja Bhatt has signed Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh as lead actors. Imran Zahid is reportedly playing a role of a narcotics sleuth hailing from Delhi, in the film.
About casting Sunny Leone in the film Pooja Bhatt says,"I signed Sunny Leone for the same reason I signed John Abraham in Jism. It was instinct. I broke the perception that models can't act with Jism. Now, I am looking forward to break another perception by signing Sunny Leone, a pornstar in Jism 2." Stating the differences between Jism and Jism 2 she says,"Jism was a love story for mature audience, Jism 2 is for mature adult audience. We are looking at raising the bar in every sense - emotionally and sensually. It would be the story of human heart, crime of passion, revenge, betrayal, the same elements that made Jism, with a fresh story.
Filming began on 1 April 2012 in Jaipur. The second schedule of Jism 2 was shot in Goa. The last and final shooting schedule of Jism 2 was shot in Sri Lanka The sequel will hit the screens on 3 August 2012.
The first Musical Promo of Jism 2 titled 'Yeh Jism hai to kya' was given an A-certificate by the Censor Board and so the promo was not permitted to air on TV. And this infuriated Pooja Bhatt to no end. That's the reason why Pooja decided to put her foot down and decided to release the Uncensored Promo of Jism 2 on Internet. Pooja also said further,"We have six songs in Jism 2. Only three cater to a universal audience without losing their essence. The other three cannot be made to seem asexual! Hence, we will only submit to the censor board and plug on TV those songs of Jism 2 what we feel is appropriate for a family audience". The first Musical Promo was released on 29 June and got rave reviews and was a huge hit on Youtube garnering 1 million views in just 5 days. And the Censor Board infuriated Pooja Bhatt further by granting the second song of Jism 2 titled 'Abhi Abhi' which has absolutely no adult content a U/A certificate. The Songs and cinematography go hand in hand with what was expected out of it. Well written melodious songs are a hallmark of the Jism series and it does not disappoint.

1. Abhi Abhi-1 (K K)
2. Hey Walla (Unoosha)
3. Abhi Abhi-2 (K K, Shreya Ghoshal)
