Mahesh BhattControversial filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, 63, is rumoured to enter Bigg Boss season 5 this week. 

Mahesh Bhatt, father of Pooja Bhatt (actress and filmmaker) and Rahul Bhatt (last season's controversial housemate), is now seen as a commentator on current affairs and mores.

If sources are to be believed, he will enter the house only for a few hours to offer a movie to Sunny Leone. Bhatt is keen to cast her in his upcoming film, Jism 2.

Since Bigg Boss 5 will reach its finale in January, Sunny has entered the house as a contestant, Bhatt was eager to gauge if she had the ability to be the lead actress of Jism 2.

He approached the Colors channel to see if a meeting could be arranged with the international actress, and they accepted.

While the Bigg Boss house has witnessed a lot of activities in the previous seasons, including marriages, hookups and
breakups, this is the first time that viewers will get to see a movie deal being signed inside the house.

"Jism 2 is the story of a woman who transcends from the 'body' to the 'soul'. For Jism 2, I wanted to approach an actress who not only has the physical attributes, but also the emotional 'edge' to carry off the complexity of the role. While I have leading Bollywood actresses eager to essay this role, I was keen to also discuss this proposal with a confident, professional newcomer like Sunny who has expressed interest in making a Bollywood debut," Bhatt said.
