Reports were abuzz that former Lebanese-American adult film star Mia Khalifa is set to make her debut in the Malayalam film industry.
According to multiple reports, Mia will play a role in Chunkzz 2: The Conclusion, the sequel to the 2017 film Chunkzz. Some quoted Omar Lulu, the director of the film, to have said that 24-year-old Mila will play a character in the film and also do an "item" dance.
However, Omar Lulu has taken to Facebook to address the rumours.
Stating that his inbox was inundated with a host of messages asking about Mia Khalifa's entry into the Malayalam film industry, Omar wrote:
"We were in talks with one of the Bollywood companies to rope in Mia Khalifa for Chunks 2 The conclusion which is expected to release in 2018. Based on my conversation with the company, they told me that they would get her dates and I was asked to wait for a week to get the clear picture about Mia's debut and I mentioned the same on FB. Looks like they are trying to get hold of Mia's rep and I'm still waiting for the final confirmation from them.
At the moment nothing is confirmed..."
Chunkzz was released on August 4 this year and was made on a budget of Rs. 2 crores. The film went on to collect Rs. 15.3 crores at the box office.
Recently, Omar announced that Chunkzz will be remade in all the other major south Indian languages - Tamil, Kannada and Telugu.
According to reports, Mia quit the adult film industry after a brief stint and is currently working as a journalist.
