Controversy seems to dog the Bhatts at every nook and corner! The latest setback to their latest film, Jism-2, is that a political party has taken offence to the film’s poster in public places and on BEST public buses in Mumbai and has ordered them to be torn down.
This, on the eve of the film’s release! Doesn’t is smell suspicious? The posters have been around for so many months. Why would politicians want to remove then just ONE day before the film’s release?
On Twitter, Pooja Bhatt had a lot to say:
Mahesh Bhatt also issued a statement which said, “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.
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!”
Do you think this poster (below) is objectionable?
