The posters of Jism 2, starring Indo-Canadian adult star Sunny Leone, have been removed from 75 BEST buses, 25 bus depots and all electricity poles in Mumbai.

The posters was considered objectionable by Vidya Chavan, a Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) corporator, who complained to the mayor of Mumbai, Sunil Prabhu, and the commissioner of the BMC, the city's municipal corporation.

Director Pooja Bhatt is rather amused by the move. 'The NCP MLC has ensured that Maharashtra will be free of any atrocities to women by removing the #Jism2 poster from the public domain! : ) As my friend Andre said,by pulling the posters of #Jism2 down NCP has ensured the image being burned into your consciousness FOREVER lol,' she tweeted.

In fact, she thanked NCP. 'You are not a BRAND till a political party has used you for their 2 minutes of fame. Gracias NCP for giving #Jism2 cult status!' she added.
