'Jism 2' for common man who understands erotica: Pooja
Filmmaker Pooja Bhatt's 'Jism 2' has been passed with an A-certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). She says it is an adult film that targets mature audiences.
The 40-year-old said the film doesn't target only multiplex audiences, adding she does not make "elite films".
"I don't wish it to be an elite product. I am catering for the man on the streets and women who understand 'the erotica'. It is an erotic sensual thriller...," she added.
She clarified that she never wanted children to watch 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," Pooja told us.
Talking about the cuts made, she says there were few changes done.
"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 adding that censor board left the cuts to "director's discretion".
"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.
"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 said.
'Jism 2', releasing Aug 3, is a sequel to the 2003 film, features Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone, with Arunoday Singh and Randeep Hooda.
