Pooja Bhatt wants "Jism 2" to be a game changer for her, just as the 1982 "Arth" was for her father Mahesh Bhatt.

"I hope 'Jism 2' will be my 'Arth'," Pooja, 40, told IANS.

Pooja has directed four films -- "Paap", "Holiday", "Dhokha" and "Kajraare" -- none of which worked any magic at the box office. With the erotic thriller "Jism 2", she is hoping for success, fame and acclaim.

"It's a coincidence that even I am at the same stage (as my father). Even he had made around four movies (before 'Arth') and none of them did well. He was at a point in his career where nothing was moving," she said.

Pooja also finds a common thread between "Arth" and "Jism 2".

"Somewhere what's the specialty of 'Arth' is that a lady makes a choice not to be with her husband and neither with her lover. In 'Jism 2', Isna, who is a porn star, makes a conscious choice for her life too.

"We are talking about choices and that's the similarity between the two. 'Jism 2' is contemporary, it's a world view film. It's a game changer in more ways than one," said Pooja, who has roped in Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone to play the lead in the film.

"Jism 2" is an erotic thriller and has received an 'A' rating from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

While many filmmakers reshoot bold scenes in a subtle way to telecast it on the small screen, Pooja says she didn't want to get into that zone. She says it's not possible to tone down an adult film and so she'd rather show her movie post the 11 p.m. slot on TV.

"I have made an adult film; you can't really sell alcohol on a children's channel! So if one is making a film with the adult title, how can I water down and release it in prime time in the afternoon?" she asked.

"I am very clear I want the 11 p.m. slot or I am open with the home video market. I have to look at new ways to look at the market for my product," added the director, who played smart by releasing promotional videos of only those songs on TV that had no sexual content.

The rest were marketed online, "a more than worthy competitor of TV", according to the director.

"Jism 2", releasing Aug 3, also features Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh alongside Sunny.

    Ok I have one complaint against Indian reporters...If you want to say add po*n star in front of someone's name, its fine do it...But why the heck are you putting Indo-Canadian in front of it. Sorry to say but, you are putting a bad image for all indo-Canadians in front of the world on purpose, by doing this over and over again. Do you mean to say, that all indo-Canadians are po*n stars??? Just simply say she is a po*n star..dont add any nationality in front of it...India and Canada both have nothing to do with it...arghhh
