Bollywood gets racy with 'Jism 2'

MUMBAI: ''Jism 2,'' a new Indian movie titled after the Urdu/Hindi word for ''body,'' stars in x-rated movies. But the filmmakers insist it's not a rated movie, bollywood is certainly not ready for that.

Government censors monitoring a film industry that long refused to show onscreen kissing would never clear that. But with its oil massages and fantastic lingerie, it promises to be one of the most graphic films in Bollywood history.  At the same time, growing sexual freedom has sparked a backlash by traditionalists who have torn down its risque poster, led a crackdown on bars in Mumbai and even advocated an informal curfew for women.

According to Times of India, Vidya Chavan, member of legislative council (MLC) wrote a letter  to Sunil Prabhu, the mayor of Mumbai saying it was very embarrassing for women and children to see such pictures at public places and thus they should be removed. Immediately, the mayor wrote to the BEST (Brihanmumbai Electric Supply and Transport Undertaking administration) and asked them to take action against all the posters of Jism 2 installed on bus stops

Bilal Aug 02, 2012 09:02pm
A a useless article, I mean do you really need to tell the awam about a "racy" movie no one would care after 24 hours of it's release? and plz don't call it opinion, what a waste of space.

It's amazing how Indians are always jumping to post derogatory comments about Pakistan on this web site, but can not see what a terrible mess they are creating for their future generations but slumping their society to a level where a X-Rated movie is openly being shown across India. Mumbai is already considered the Sexual Harassment Capital of the World and with these kind of movies entering from low budget B Grade flicks to the mainstream cinema, i can only ponder about the price they will have to pay in terms of moral degradation of their future generations.

Excellent Dawn news, bravo for promoting a pornstar.. how pathetic... I only found about this actresses from your news.. imagine young readers finding her pictures on the internet..Today is the last time i will ever read the Dawn News. Good Bye
azhar Aug 03, 2012 12:38am
who cares for leone... she should be banned in pakistan

Bollywood has become so obsessed with money making that they have contracted a Porno star "sunny leone" for this movie. Sunny Leone is a porno actress. JISM 2 serves what purpose, other than making money and eroding the dying eastern values left in India. This clearly shows the bankrupcy in Bollywood for any more creativity. Looks like good cinema is on death bed. Mansoor

Modernity here we come.
Highlander Aug 03, 2012 03:38am
I agree with you Mansoor. Bollywood actresses have nothing to flaunt but Jism.

Bollywood now introduce porn stars to makes their film market increases. Now a days Bollywood movies is full of sexual and in other words we call it semi porn movies.
fahad Aug 03, 2012 04:44am
In Past indian movies are so nice contains good things like marriage and on cultural issue. Now a days Bollywood cinema is on death bed because it makes porn type movies like Jism etc.
anne Aug 03, 2012 05:24am
What i think . these kind of films are just to destroy the youth..
Haseena Aug 03, 2012 06:08am
Its a cheap and shortest way to be rich n famous. Bollywood is simply following hollywood and pakistanis collectively following Bollywood. When did the word "Chita" fluently used by geo news readers entered Urdu ?
sanjay Aug 03, 2012 06:22am
very true mansoor. Bollywood has very few creative film makers.
Shamroz Aug 03, 2012 06:38am
Pomoting a porn star like Sunny leone is nothing but promoting porn sites. Nowadays internet can access through mobile phones though and average 12 years of boys and girls having cell phones. Just google sunny leone name and you will enter in world of porn. Nothing can be worst than this.

Proof of the dying eastern culture in bollywood!
raza Aug 03, 2012 07:09am
Either the Indians should make up their minds that they are now a full fledged western imitating parrots or they have a niche of their own as a culture and tradition as now it seems they are confused as to which way to choose
Adeel Aug 03, 2012 07:09am
i hope that was sarcasm
Saad Aug 03, 2012 08:52am
Trust we first need to clean our own backyard first with the likes of Veena Malik's / Meera's and not to mention that male singer (forgot his name) last movie was quite open as well. PS: it is not India only where the eastern culture is dying, in Pakistan too we are quite "western" now as well !!
RAVI Aug 04, 2012 12:02am
Absolutely i agree that this is nothing but Promotion of PORN BUSINESS and degradation of culture and society as a whole. Well, what do u expect from POOJA BHATT.Now what do u really expect from these people who are mentally deprived and were, of natural eastern habitat while they were growing up and now they assume projecting their wild fancies and fantasies in their films is CREATIVITY and bring about a genuine change in the society, in other words the world would be a better place for shameless, adulterers and i dont have a slightest doubt in my mind that this is nothing but MAHESH BHATT TRYING TO PREPARE INDIAN CINEMA FOR SOFT PORN MOVIES THAT HE HAS IN HIS AGENDA................ITS LIKE A SLOW POISON U GET USE TO IT, U LIKE IT AND THEN U ENJOY IT.....AMAZING, i wonder what kinda cinema is this.
veena malik Aug 04, 2012 08:16am
i like jism 2 very much i like all character specially sunny leon
BEA Aug 04, 2012 03:53pm
I do not understand the whole hoo haa about this film, just because India has made this film everyone is jumping around trying to ban it what about hollywood and the porn that comes out of that every day pron is everywhere on the internet on tv, If someone does not want to watch it they dont have to we all ahve a choice. Here in the UK we now have a book that has come out called 50 shades of grey its porn people have been complaining about that just dont read it. If you dont want to watch the film read a book that is classed as porn dont read and dont watch. l
abhishek Aug 08, 2012 03:51am
dude u can not blame whole bollywoood for that............its on;y Mahesh Bhatt and his family who serves thi genre.....95% of adult films of bollywood are from Bhatt jism,jism-2,murder murder-2...jannat-2.....gangster..etc
EmJ Aug 08, 2012 12:16pm
True. But there is hardly any film you can watch with your sibling or even your friend. Obscenity is undeniable in every film.
