Pooja Bhatt miffed over Jism 2 'A' certificate
Here's what your favourite Bollywood celebrities are tweeting.
Pooja Bhatt seems to be upset with the Censor Board for giving an 'A' certificate to her upcoming film Jism 2, starring Sunny Leone.
'First music promo for #Jism2 has been given an 'A' certificate. And this was what one could call a truly watered down version,' the actor-director tweeted.
'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!' she added.
The actress/filmmaker has now decided to release the promo on the Internet instead.
'So will I pare down the promo of #Jism2 to appease the censors? Or release it on the internet & push forward a more sanitized song on TV? Absolutely REFUSE to pare my scheduled trailer down to pander to an over cautious Censor board. Will release promo on the internet instead,' she added.
'So we've decided to throw all caution to the winds & go ahead and release our first music promo on June 29'TH as scheduled over the INTERNET. Delighted that T. Series is in absolute agreement with us with regards to NOT releasing watered down versions of #Jism2 trailers on TV!' she updated.
'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 & plug on TV those songs of #Jism2 what WE feel is appropriate for a family audience,' she tweeted.
