Jism 2 posters featuring adult movie star Sunny Leone have been considered too hot to handle by Mumbai civic authorities as the Mayor has ordered their removal from BEST buses.
The action follows a complaint by NCP legislator Vidya Chavan that the posters were obscene.
"We received a complaint from Chavan, who alleged that the posters were obscene. I have asked BEST general manager to remove such posters from BEST buses," Mayor Sunil Prabhu told PTI.
The 31-year-old Indo-Canadian porn star, whose participation in the reality show 'Bigg Boss' led to her entry in Bollywood, is debuting in the erotic thriller directed by Pooja Bhatt.
It will hit theatres this Friday.
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.”
