    sunny_288Jaipur/Allahabad: Sunny Leone's Jism 2 is making headlines for all the wrong reasons.

    Pooja Bhatt sure knows the perfect recipe for a film to be hit – controversy, controversy, controversy. And controversy is a synonym for ‘Jism 2’. This time around, it is porn star Sunny Leone who is at the crux of the controversy.

    A PIL has been filed in the Rajasthan High Court against porn star Sunny Leone and film director Puja Bhatt for violating provisions of the Prevention of Immoral Trafficking Act (PITA).

    The PIL, filed by Gaurav Tiwari, demands an immediate ban on the film, which is set to hit the silver screen on August 3.

    The petition says, "Jism 2 has violated Section 8 of PITA, which prohibits promotion of a call girl. Sunny Leone has worked in 37 porn films and what Mahesh Bhatt is going is immoral."

    A PIL has also been filed in the Allahabad High Court seeking a stay on the release of the film even as it has been cleared by the CBFC. The PIL has also challenged the provisions of the law which define the powers of the Censor Board.

    The PIL, filed by activist Rakesh Nayayik from Varanasi, has raised an objection to the inclusion of Sunny Leone in the film.

    Bringing an adult film star from the West into mainstream Bollywood cinema would send out a wrong message to aspiring actresses in the country, advocate SMA Kazmi, the legal counsel in the case.

    The bench comprising Chief Justice SR Alam and Justice Vikram Nath have deferred the hearing in the case till August 8. Interestingly, the film will hit the silver screen on August 3.
