Rumour mills have been suggesting since Monday, October 30, that popular adult entertainment star Mia Khalifa will appear in a Malayalam movie soon.
Shocked? Looks like this is not just a rumour, because director Omar Lulu — who is known for his movies Happy Wedding and Chunkzz — has apparently approached her for his upcoming movie.
Omar had earlier announced his next project Chunkzz 2, which is the sequel to the 2017 film Chunkzz, starring Balu Varghese and Honey Rose. The sequel will be bankrolled by a Bollywood production house.

Omar Lulu has officially confirmed on approaching Mia and posted about it on social media to shed some light on the latest reports.
"Hi guys, My inbox is inundated with a host of messages asking about Mia Khalifa's entry to the Malayalam film industry and I think I gotta shed some lights on what is happening.
We were in talk 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 that they would get the date of her and I was asked to wait for a week to get the clear picture about Mia's debute 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 and I would surely be keeping you all in the loop! Thanks a lot "
Latest reports hint that Mia will be seen doing a character role as well as an item number in the adult comedy movie.
Mia has reportedly responded in the afirmative to the offer, though the final round of discussion is still pending.
If Mia signs the project, she would be the second adult enrtetainment star to enter the Indian entertainment industry following Karenjit Kaur Vohra, better known by her screen name Sunny Leone.
Sunny Leone enjoys great popularity in Kerala and other parts of India. Fans flooded to MG Road in Kochi to get a glimpse of her when she visited the city to inaugurate a mobile shop.
The Kerala Police found it difficult to control the crowd and her visit affected many other commuter routes, with people stuck in traffic for hours.
Will Mia get the same love from the audience?
Why is there a sequel for Chunkzz?
Chunkzz opened to negative response from the audience, who were of the opinion that the film was filled with adult jokes with no logic in the storyline.
Despite being a movie that garnered bad reviews, especially for its innuendo-sprinkled dialogues and overdose of sexist jokes, why are the makers of Chunkzz coming up with a sequel?
The low-budget Chunkzz had a total gross collection of Rs 15.8 crore from Kerala, clearly indicating that the youngsters in the state are supporting such movies.
The makers are looking to repeat that success with the sequel.
