'Jism 2' gets 'A' certificate
Director Pooja Bhatt tweets news of censor board passing Sunny Leone-starrer erotic thriller
Erotic thriller "Jism 2" has been passed with an A-certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), says director Pooja Bhatt, who is glad that cuts were only made "upon my discretion".
"'A' certificate received for 'Jism 2'. August 3 here we come! India just got itself an erotic thriller that truly reflects the times," tweeted Pooja.
"Let me also clarify to all my 'well-wishers' that 'Jism 2' has not been affected in the least by the cuts I made 'upon my own discretion'," added the actress-turned-director.
"Jism 2" is a sequel to 2003 film "Jism". While the original was quite bold in its own way with Bipasha Basu in the lead, the forthcoming movie will see Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone as the leading lady.
It promises to be a steamier affair, and an adult certification might be befitting for it.
"Jism 2" also features Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh.
