Pooja Bhatt’s ‘Jism 2’ — making headlines for all the wrong reasons. A PIL has been filed in the Allahabad High Court seeking a stay on the release of the film.The PIL, filed by activist Rakesh Nayayik from Varanasi, raises an objection to the inclusion of Sunny Leone in the film. The petitioner argues that bringing an adult film star from the West into mainstream Bollywood cinema would send out a wrong message to aspiring actresses in the country. “Till now, there were usually two routes that one took into the film industry — one, through film schools or theatre, and two, via modelling. But inducting a porn star into Bollywood is introducing a third and more questionable medium of entry into Hindi films,” he adds.
The bench comprising Chief Justice S R Alam and Justice Vikram Nath have deferred the hearing in the case till August 8.
