So what if my song features porn star Sunny Leone, says Ali Azmat

Karachi: Ali Azmat, who is always in the limelight for his extreme-right political ideology, is now making headlines for the songs he has sung for the freshly released, racy B-town film, ‘Jism 2’.

The new erotic thriller has proved to be popular at the Indian box office, raking in a staggering INR210 million on its opening weekend.

The film falls under the ‘Jism’ brand as a sequel to the movie released nine years ago, starring Bipasha Basu and John Abraham.

While some believe it is nothing more than erotica – with the new film starring Indian-Canadian adult film actor Sunny Leone in more than one ‘compromising’ position – others feel there is more to it than meets the eye.

Either way, it has created quite a buzz in Bollywood, which is seeping over to Pakistan as one of the most renowned rock stars of the country has lent his voice to songs in the steamy new film.

During an interview, Ali Azmat shed some light on his latest venture and some issues of ‘morality’ that answer the question: “Haw! How could he!?”

“The songs that are usually running on television are no less than porn clips,” the Express tribune quoted Azmat as saying.

“So what if the video features an actual porn star?” he said referring to Leone.

“What my Muslim brothers are already watching on television does not even come close to what you may call sharafat.

“Look at what Veena Malik is doing; look at what other Pakistani heroines are doing and the way their videos are being shot – I don’t think that follows any pattern of morality,” he said.

Azmat further insisted that while he feels that singing for ‘Jism 2’ has been an exciting Bollywood venture for him, it is not his place to guide the moral compass on the matter since it was not his project but a friendly endeavour he did for his peers.

“Both actor Dino Morea and director Pooja Bhatt are dear friends,” he said.

“It is a project that I have done for them, whatever they do with the video is not in my control,” Azmat said.

His steamy numbers ‘Yeh Jism Hai Tau Kiya’ and ‘Maula’ for ‘Jism 2’ have received brilliant response so far.
