Mumbai: Popular Bollywood diva Sunny Leone may soon feature in Ekta Kapoor's web series based on Kamasutra.
A Mid-Day report claimed that Sunny and Ekta Kapoor have been in talks for a few months now. A source close to tabloid quoted, "Sunny has heard the outline of the show and has agreed in principle to be part of it. The two have earlier successfully collaborated for Ragini MMS 2 (2014) and Ekta is convinced that the actor is the right person for the role. Set in the 13th century, the fictional series will focus on the women of the Goli caste in Rajasthan, who used to serve as concubines to the kings."
Kamasutra is the oldest Hindu text on eroticism which is written by Vātsyāyana and is a guide to ‘art of living’, and is not exclusively a sex manual. The text has earlier inspired a few films including Mira Nair's 'Kamasutra A Tale of Love' starring Rekha and Indira Varma.
The film was nominated for the Golden Seashell award at the 1996 San Sebastián International Film Festival. It was screened at the Cannes Film Festival and was initially banned in India and Pakistan due to its erotic theme.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Sunny was last seen in a biopic on her own life, with ZEE 5’s Karenjit Kaur – The Untold Story of Sunny Leone.
