Shekhar Suman, whose popularity soared as a stand-up comedian in the last leg of the 1990s, is going to direct Sunny Leone in a medical thriller. Titled as Heartless, it will star his son Adhyayan in the lead role. He is reprising Hayden Christensen's role in the original, Awake, a 2007 Hollywood flick.
The actor-turned-director will be soon meeting Sunny to discuss the film, and will hopefully get the nod. When asked if he is roping Sunny for her oomph factor, Shekar denied it, saying that in fact it is because she is pretty and erotic-looking that he wants to cast her. "Oomph factor will be there but it is not like I want to expose her. I think the oomph is in the face, eyes and smile," added Shekar.
Shekar is hoping to start the shooting of 'Heartless' this year, as the script is ready and they are in the casting process.
