Pooja Bhatt highly upset with Censor Board

Director Pooja Bhatt is one upset lady, courtesy, the Censor Board. The reason being Censor Board has given an A-certificate to the song promo of her upcoming film Jism 2 that stars Sunny Leone. And this has infuriated her to no end. That’s the reason why Pooja has decided that she will put her foot down.


Pooja has now found an alternate method to ‘showcase’ her film’s promos: the internet. She will be going ahead and releasing the uncensored song on the internet. She says that the promo of the film’s theme song that was due to go on air on June 29th will now be released on the internet simultaneously in its uncensored form.


She vented out her anger on the Censor Board by going hammer and tongs by tweeting “First music promo for #Jism2 has been given an ‘A’ certificate. And this was what one could call a truly watered down version. So the deal is this-You can’t buy spots on TV for a promo with an ‘A’ certificate. Which basically means you can’t publicize your music!” She also protested, “Absolutely REFUSE to pare my scheduled trailer down to pander to an over cautious Censor board. Will release promo on the internet instead.”


Pooja quoted the example of Delhi Belly which was cleared by the censors, “DKBose faced no censor prob bcz they didnt understand lyrics!R they claiming 2 understand J2 visuals mre than they did DBlyrics?”


Pooja, who is understandably very upset with the Censors’ take on TV promos, said that the censors need to give clear directives about the same. She said that it seems like we only accept sex if it is portrayed in a vulgar manner so that we can ‘laugh’ it off.


Over to you, Censors!
