Won't accept cuts that mutilate 'Jism 2': Pooja Bhatt

New Delhi, July 18 (IANS) Pooja Bhatt's bold project "Jism 2" is set to get a verdict from the Central Board of Film Certification Wednesday and the actress-turned-director says she won't accept any cuts that will alter her narrative.

"Verdict on 'Jism 2' Censors tomorrow (Wednesday). No way I am going to accept cuts that mutilate my film. But if the cuts work, shall be gracious," tweeted Pooja Tuesday night.

"Jism 2" is a sequel to the 2003 film "Jism", which was quite bold for its time. The new film is expected to be steamier with Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone in the lead role.

Recalling the days when "Jism" underwent the censors' scanner, Pooja wrote: "Ten years ago when we 'censored' 'Jism', they cut out two shots that seem laughable in this day and age, but were considered provocative then.

"I accepted the two cuts on 'Jism' 10 years ago because it did not mar our narrative in the least and frankly, made our edit far more aesthetic," she added.

"Jism 2" also features Randeep Hooda and Arunoday Singh, and releases July 27.

Writers are running the show: Ali Fazal

Three films old actor Ali Fazal, last seen in "Always Kabhi Kabhi", feels writers should get more limelight.

"Commercial cinema is getting good writers and I think that is what is changing. The script is very important. Even if it is a comedy and even if it is not a serious cinema, writers should get more coverage the way directors and actors get. They are the ones who are running the show right now," Ali told IANS.

The 26-year-old actor started his career with the serious role of Joy Lobo in Aamir Khan's "3 Idiots" and went on to do a chocolate boy character Sameer Khanna in "Always Kabhi Kabhi". He is now set to feature in comedy "Ban Gayi Baat".

The actor feels it is great that people are accepting different sorts of scripts, and said: "It's amazing because at the same time there is a Rohit Shetty film that worked brilliantly. They catch the masses and then there is a beautiful movie like 'Vicky Donor'."
