The Shiv Sena has objected to Poonam Pandey’s skin show in her upcoming film, Nasha.
The party has forced the film’s publicity posters to be taken down. Says producer Aditya Bhatia, “My outdoor publicist called up to say that Shiv Sainiks had made him pull down the hoarding. They found Poonam’s posture objectionable. But my publicity stills have been approved by the Western India Film Producers’ Association. So, I am not going to pull the other hoardings down. I am even thinking of filing a complaint.”
Bhatia adds, “I am a responsible citizen. If I think the posters are objectionable, I would pull them down myself. Maybe I will keep them away from children’s view.”
Says Akshay Bardapurkar, the general secretary of Shiv Sena Chitrapat Sena, “We find the poster highly vulgar and derogatory and won’t allow such hoardings. We are trying to pull down hoardings all across the city.”
