Sunny Leone’s ‘Jism 2’ runs into censor trouble
Mumbai: This was certainly coming. Sunny Leone’s debut Bollywoood flick ‘Jism 2’ directed by Pooja Bhatt has run into trouble. The lengthy lovemaking scenes in the film haven’t gone well with the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and hence the body has refused to certify the flick.
Also starring Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh, the film has four long love making scenes that are very explicit. So the Censor Board wants the director to cut the scenes to half of what the original duration is.
Talking to a daily, a member of the board said, “Pooja Bhatt was sent home. We refused to certify her film.’ Jism 2’ will obviously get an A certificate at a later stage but only when she incorporates the changes which we have asked for.”
The film was also in news earlier over the songs meant for TV viewing. So Pooja had to launch 3 songs from the film with explicit content on the internet. Then, Pooja looked quite determined not to budge to the Censor Board’s demand. But now she seems to have a different take.
“I sat down and thought about what they had said. They have a problem with certain shots, like the one where Sunny turns around and a part of her breast is visible. If I really had a problem, I would have headed straight to the Revising Committee. I don`t, so I will introduce close-ups wherever wide angles have been used in the scenes in question. It`s okay. It will not amputate my film,” Pooja said.
