Mahesh Bhatt's next movie Jism 2 starring Sunny Leone, Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh in leads, is all set to hit the screens tomorrow, (August 3) and the raunchy and steamy posters of the film have been attracting the audience across the country. But this does not seem to have gone well with Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Mayor Sunil Prabhu, who has ordered their removal from BEST buses.
Reports suggest Mayor Sunil Prabhu's order is coming after NCP legislator Vidya Chavan lodged a complaint stating that the posters of Jism 2 were obscene. But the Mayor's decision has disappointed Mahesh Bhatt, who says that it is conservative and traditional, as the story of Jism 2 is about a journey of a porn star, and her longing for real love.
Talking to Bollywood Hungama on the issue, Mahesh Bhatt says, "Spiting off visuals emanating out of the human imagination has been the norm since medieval times. In recent times, I remember Karan Johar's film Kurbaan's posters were pulled down by the moral police. Only faces of politicians change, their thoughts never do."
Mahesh Bhatt will now replace the posters with decent ones. The Bollywood filmmaker adds, "An ordinary citizen's freedom has often fallen prey to the political class claiming that is good for the society. And now we will gracefully agree to their demands and replace these posters with new non controversial ones!"
