Pooja Bhatt’s next directorial venture ‘Jism 2’ has been passed by Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) with an ‘A’ certificate. But the director isn’t fazed by this as she says that the movie caters ‘mature’ audience.
“I don’t wish it to be an elite product. I am catering the man on the streets and women who understand `the erotica`. It is an erotic sensual thriller...,” she said to IANS.
The director said that she never wanted to get anything other than an ‘A’ certificate as she doesn’t want kids watching it.
“We applied for an `A` because I am very clear that I want an `A` and not a `U/A`. I am not making the film for children; it’s an adult film for adult sensibilities. The adult audience is a sizeable number and it is big enough for my film,” she said.
Pooja Bhatt even spoke about the cuts advised by the board.
“The censor board asked me to decrease the length of shots at four places or replace it with another one. Three out of which are in songs and one is a scene. One of them is the song `Yeh kasoor`, which is already out on the internet,” she said.
“I think, by saying that they are being rather mature. I made the changes and genuinely felt it made my film more erotic. Otherwise, they did not tamper with a single dialogue or a scene,” she added.
“I have not tampered with sensual content at all. I promise, apart from `Jism` 1, `Jism 2` will be the most sensual film of our times and I assure that I will deliver that promise,” she added.
‘Jism 2’ stars Sunny Leone, Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh in lead roles. The movie is all set to release on August 3.
