This poster of Jism2 starring debutante Sunny leone was considered ‘Too hot to handle’ by the civic authority in Mumbai as the mayor had no choice but to order for the removal of these posters from 75 BEST buses, 25 bus depots and all electric poles. NCP legislator Vidya Chavan registered a complaint against the posters calling them ‘obscene’ and hence this action had to be taken.
Mayor Sunil Prabhu told PTI “We received a complaint from Chavan, who alleged that the posters were obscene. I have asked BEST general manager to remove such posters from BEST buses.”
Earlier filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, Pooja Bhatt’s father, told Times Of India that “It was a battle not worth fighting, Censoring images created by the human mind has been going on since the dark ages. In recent times, I remember Qurban’s posters were pulled down by the moral police. I guess the more things change, the more they remain the same. Individual freedom has always been trampled upon under the name of larger good by the political class.”
Sunny, the 31 year old Indo-canadian pornstar who was signed by Mahesh Bhatt for Jism 2 during her stay in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house stars in the erotic thriller directed by Pooja Bhatt which hits the theaters on Friday.
