Pooja Bhatt Delighted Over 'Rog' Obscenity Case Decision

Jism 2 director Pooja Bhatt is delighted after a long-pending obscenity case against her, for the 2005 film Rog, has been quashed. The Bombay High Court had on Nov 22, quashed the obscenity charges against Pooja and her company Fish Eye Network Pvt. Ltd. and disposed off a complaint filed by social activist Vinod Jain. In January 2005, Bhatt was booked for using posters with a skimpily-clad South African model Elina Hamman, while promoting the film.

The case filed by Jain had been discharged by the magistrate court in July 2008 on the basis of lack of sufficient evidence.

 

However, in January last year, the session's court had reopened the case and quashed the magistrate court's order. However, Pooja moved the Bombay High Court which, on November 22, disposed off a complaint filed by Jain.

 

An ecstatic Bhatt took to Twitter to express her happiness and relief over the court decision. She wrote, "Divine Justice - in the form of a high court hearing in my favour for an obscenity case against my film Rog. Fought this for 8 long years!"

 

She further wrote, "Had I chickened out and settled out of court as most people in entertainment are prone to do, it would have resulted in more such cases. Each one to their own in the film industry. But the ones who stick their necks out for the larger cause pave the road for the fence

sitters."

 

"The ROGues have been silenced," she concluded.
