JISM 2'S SENSUAL POSTER INSPIRED!
It has emerged that Jism 2 poster got inspired from a Felix Bendish's visual for a fashion show in 2010.
Designer Felix told missmalini.com, “I did this shoot with photographer Kenny Zaveri from Mumbai in 2008, which I only used two years later (as a promo poster) for my fashion show in Goa in December 2010. The collection was entitled ‘skin’. Kenny came up with this concept and then we proceeded with our stlying and shows in 2010. Because my collection, was a based on racisim and female foeticide, we thought this image was perfect for the concept. Thankfully its on record with the goa press.”
NO SUNNY LEONE IN JISM 2 FIRST POSTER
Yes, you read it right. The mystery girl in the first poster of Jism 2 is not Sunny Leone. In fact it's the Dan Dan girl Nathalia Kaur, who has graced the poster.
Pooja Bhatt told a daily, "A year ago, when it was being speculated that the film will feature either Bipasha Basu or Mallika Sherawat,
I decided to whet people's appetite with a sexy poster. I called my friend, photographer Joy Datta, who deals with dusky Brazilian models, for options. I chose Nathalia from amongst the ones he showed me."
Now we know why Ram Gopal Varma said that Nathalia is Pooja's discovery!

PROTEST AGAINST SUNNY LEONE
Activists of Bhagwan Valmiki Shakti Sena shouted slogans against the film Jism 2, as they burnt effigies of actress Sunny Leone and director Pooja Bhatt during a demonstration in Amritsar.
The demonstrators reportedly protested against vulgarity shown in the Bollywood film.
PIL AGAINST SUNNY LEONE
Protests against Sunny Leone
A PIL has been slammed against Sunny Leone in the Allahabad High Court. The PIL was filed by Rakesh Nayayik, a resident of Varanasi. It seeks a stay on the release of the film, and has challenged the provisions of the law which define the powers of the Censor Board in India.
It objects to the presence of the Canadian adult film actress Sunny Leone in the film. Advocate SMA Kazmi, the legal counsel who is handling the case, said, “We have sought a stay order on the release of Jism 2 because of the sexually explicit content of the movie, and the inclusion of Sunny Leone in the film, for the adverse moral impact that her presence would have on society.”JISM 2 SONG COPIED
Pooja Bhatt's film Jism 2 has been in the news for all the wrong reasons -- one of them being the tittle track Yeh Jism, which is said to be copy of a Turkish song. Debutant music composer Arko Pravo Mukherjee denies that and says these are just rumours.
"I don't care about these rumours. There is some similarity in the beginning of three more songs but these things happen. It was not a conscious decision to copy. This song is totally different," Mukherjee told IANS .
A doctor by profession, Mukherjee left Kolkata four years ago and came to Mumbai with a dream of making music for Bollywood and feels fortunate to start his career with Jism 2.
It is very important to get the 'right break' in the industry, says Mukherjee.
"It often happens that you make songs for a film but due to some reasons, the movie does not get made. It happened to me thrice. This is very common. I am lucky that I am making my debut with Jism 2," he added.
