Imran Zahid, who was to play the title role in Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt's "Chandu", says his dream is finally coming true as he is making his debut in their "Jism 2".

"I play a narcotics detective in 'Jism 2'. I am looking forward to starting work on it. There's excitement and nervousness," Imran told.

"Jism 2" is being produced by Bhatts' Vishesh Films and also features Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone.

"As a youngster, I watched (Mahesh) Bhatt saab's films. I am a small town boy. I am from Bokaro. For me, it's a big thing to work with someone like him and Pooja (Bhatt), whose 'Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahin' I watched as a youngster.

"Bhatt saab is like a godfather, and I am really looking forward to 'Jism 2'," he added.

Imran was first roped in by the Bhatts for "Chandu", a biopic on slain Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) student activist Chandrashekhar Prasad. But it was put on the backburner.

He was also considered for "Jannat 2", and finally Imran will make his debut with "Jism 2".

"Chandu" is also expected to go on floors anytime now, especially as three people were recently sentenced to life imprisonment in the Chandrashekhar Prasad case.

The verdict has given a closure to the film's script, says Imran.

"We will start the film soon. We have a closure now, so the required changes will be made in the script. When and where we will shoot for the movie will all be planned by Bhatt saab in a few days perhaps," he said.

Imran, a former Delhi University student, has already researched well for the lead role in "Chandu".

"I went to Siwan (in Bihar), and met a lot of people who were close to him. People gave us several insights into his life, and apparently he was very fond of movies as well.

"It is wonderful to know about a man who came from a small town and took up a fight against corruption, knowing that he might be killed," said Imran, who runs his own journalism and mass communication institute Take One in the capital.

For now, he will get busy with the shoot of "Jism 2", which will begin April 1.
