Mumbai, July 14 (IANS) Shekhar Suman wants Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone as the leading lady in his directorial venture "Heartless", which also features his son Adhyayan.
The movie is a medical thriller.
"I am going to direct a film. It is a medical thriller. It is called 'Heartless'. I am doing this film with Adhyayan and hopefully it will have Sunny Leone," Shekhar said here.
Sunny, who had featured in reality show "Bigg Boss 5", bagged Pooja Bhatt's "Jism 2" during the show. The film has given her a chance to showcase her oomph factor to the hilt, but Shekhar says that her oomph is not the reason why he wants to cast her.
"The role demands her, hence I want to cast her. The role that I have envisaged, requires a girl like her. She is very pretty looking girl," the actor told IANS.
Shekhar will begin directing the film this year.
"The direction plan will hopefully happen this year. My script is complete and the casting is in process. I can't reveal the story as of now. It will start as soon as my son has some time. He is doing four to five films this year," he said.
Even though he is set to step behind the camera, Shekhar says he will always be an actor at heart.
"Direction is next. Lot of acting is what I want to do for myself and my fans and my wife. Today, the definition of actor has changed. He is someone who can host, judge, do stand-up comedy - I think predominantly I am an actor, I will die as an actor.
"There are just few other things that I am experimenting with like dancing in 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa' or singing songs or learning classical music, doing cricket commentary," he said.
Recently, Shekhar also brought back his popular chat show "Movers And Shakers" to the tube.
