In 2004 Neha Dhupia created a furore by playing the prostitute in Deepak Shivdasani's Julie.
Now Shivdasani is back with a sequel starring Sakshi Chaudhary. A few months ago she signed a 3-film deal with producer Feroz Nadiadwala including the lead in Hera Pheri 3 opposite John Abraham. However Julie 2 is not the story of a prostitute but an actress. Says a source close to Sakshi, "Considering how controversial and steamy Neha Dhupia's role was in Julie, Sakshi was apprehensive about the role. But then she heard her character in Julie 2 and flipped. But Sakshi will b doing many bold scenes. She is riding a motorcycle in a bikini. "
Sakshi says, "I admit I was apprehensive. But when I heard the script I agreed at once .It is a very performance-oriented yet glamorous role. Certainly not the kind of character a newcomer gets to play."
