Pooja Bhatt’s bold project Jism 2 is set to get a verdict from the Central Board of Film Certification Wednesday and the actress-turned-director says she won’t accept any cuts that will alter her narrative.
“Verdict on Jism 2 Censors tomorrow (Wednesday). No way I am going to accept cuts that mutilate my film. But if the cuts work, shall be gracious,” tweeted Pooja Tuesday night.
Jism 2 is a sequel to the 2003 film Jism, which was quite bold for its time. The new film is expected to be steamier with Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone in the lead role. (Stills: Sunny Leone in Jism 2)
Recalling the days when Jism underwent the censors’ scanner, Pooja wrote: “Ten years ago when we ‘censored’ Jism, they cut out two shots that seem laughable in this day and age, but were considered provocative then.
“I accepted the two cuts on Jism 10 years ago because it did not mar our narrative in the least and frankly, made our edit far more aesthetic,” she added.
Jism 2 also features Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh, and releases July 27.
