Upset with the Censor Board's decision for giving 'A' certificate to the song promo of her upcoming film Jism 2, starring Sunny Leone in the lead, Pooja Bhatt has decided not to make any changes in her scheduled trailer. Pooja will release the uncensored song of Jism 2 on Internet.
After the Censor Board certified the first music promo of Jism 2 with an 'A' certificate, an angry Pooja Bhatt tweeted, "First music promo for Jism 2 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!"
Pooja then went on to add, "Absolutely REFUSE to pare my scheduled trailer down to pander to an over cautious Censor board. Will release promo on the internet instead."
Pooja Bhatt seems to be very clear about her plans as she tweeted, "We have 6 songs in #Jism2. Only 3 cater to a universal audience without losing their essence. The other 3 cannot be made to seem asexual! Hence we will only submit to the censor board and plug on TV those songs of #Jism2 what WE feel is appropriate for a family audience. The 3 #Jism2 songs that cater to the average thinking, discerning, passionate, ADULTS may be viewed freely and by CHOICE across the Internet!."
Praising Jism 2's music partner T-series, Pooja Bhatt said, "Delighted that T-series is in absolute agreement with us with regards to NOT releasing watered down versions of #Jism2 trailers on TV. This is the FIRST time a mainstream film has chosen the Internet and social media as a MORE than worthy competitor to Television. #Jism2."
Pooja then concluded by tweeting, "So THANK YOU Censor board. The supposed roadblock you provided is actually a gateway to a brand new, sane and fair way forward for ALL! And if I do not get a 11 pm slot on TV for #Jism2 I would rather go the DTH way. Amputation of one's inherent vision is for the weak!"
Well, let's hope that Pooja hits the bulls' eye with Jism 2!
