JISM 2 director Pooja Bhatt is awfully upset with the Censor Board's decision for giving 'A' certificate to the song promo of her film. However, she says that she will not pare her scheduled trailer for the Censor Board and will put her foot down and go ahead with the uncensored song by releasing it on Internet.
The lady took to the social networking site to retort to Censor Board's decision. Tweeted Pooja, "First music promo for JISM2 has been given an 'A' certificate. And this was what one could call a truly watered down version. So the deal is this-You can't buy spots on TV for a promo with an 'A' certificate. Which basically means you can't publicize your music!"
She also protested, "Absolutely REFUSE to pare my scheduled trailer down to pander to an over cautious Censor board. Will release promo on the internet instead."
"We have 6 songs in #Jism2. Only 3 cater to a universal audience without losing their essence. The other 3 cannot be made to seem asexual! Hence we will only submit to the censor board & plug on TV those songs of #Jism2 what WE feel is appropriate for a family audience. The 3 #Jism2 songs that cater to the average thinking, discerning, passionate, ADULTS may be viewed freely & by CHOICE across the Internet!," she further wrote.
"Delighted that T-series is in absolute agreement with us with regards to NOT releasing watered down versions of #Jism2 trailers on TV. This is the FIRST time a mainstream film has chosen the Internet & social media as a MORE than worthy competitor to Television. #Jism2"
"So THANK YOU Censor board. The supposed roadblock you provided is actually a gateway to a brand new,sane & fair way forward for ALL! And if I do not get a 11 pm slot on TV for #Jism2 I would rather go the DTH way. Amputation of one's inherent vision is for the weak!" tweeted Pooja further.
