John Abraham and Bipasha Basu sizzled on screen with Jism five years ago. Jism was based on the Hollywood movie, Body Heat and was John's first film in Bollywood which gave him and Bips, the sexy tag. Producers Pooja Bhatt and Sujit Kumar were pleasantly surprised when the movie turned out to be a huge success in spite of an unconventional storyline.
The movie based on love and lust, started a tradition for Mukesh Bhatt's Vishesh Films too and thereafter they started making spicy pot boilers like Murder, Paap and Zeher, all of which did well at the box office. The buzz is that a sequel to Jism is being planned with three new faces and great bodies.
The sequel too will also deal with infidelity and will be a murder mystery. Mahesh Bhatt had written the script of Jism but the new one will be penned by Shagufta Rafique, who has earlier written Woh Lamhe, Awarapan and Dhokha. She has also written the upcoming Raaz - The Mystery Continues as well as Sin City and Jashan.
As of now, the picture is not clear about the new faces of the Jism sequel. Rafique has said, "We'll take a completely new and absolutely raw cast for Jism 2. We'll launch three new faces and three great bodies in three newcomers in the film." And that's not all. The producers also plan a Jism franchise which will feature a series of erotic and passionate films with different stories. They say they have 10 scripts ready for the franchise. There sure are a lot of hot and sizzling stuff to look forward to!
