Sunny Leone is likely to play the protagonist in a film inspired by Mamta Kulkarni's controversial life
Barely a month after photographer Jayesh Sheth announced plans of making a film inspired by '90s sex symbol Mamta Kulkarni, buzz is that he wishes to cast Sunny Leone in it. Sheth had shot the much-publicised topless photo of Mamta for a film glossy that catapulted her into Bollywood overnight.

"Sunny came to my mind as she bears great resemblance to Mamta — a sensuous body with an innocent face. But now it's too early to say anything, at least till the time I finish writing the script. I have some other names in mind, but Sunny comes closest to Mamta," says Sheth.
His original script was about a struggling actress, who makes it big and then fades into oblivion. However, after going through media reports about Mamta's detention in a Kenyan drug cartel bust last month, he is accommodating certain changes in the climax. Sheth says, "Hopefully, the film will roll by early next year."
While sources maintain that Sheth and Sunny are in talks, the actress denies the buzz. "Sorry, I have not heard anything about this," was her reply. But then Sunny has always preferred not to talk about her films until she signs on the dotted line.
