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
