Many groups in the state, especially in Guwahati, protested outside movie theatres for showing the movie. According to sources, many groups also abused those people who decided to watch the movie.
The agitators claimed that college students have been turning up to the theatres to watch the movie, though it is an adult movie.
Mousam Sarma, a spokesperson of the protesting group, claimed that they decided to protest as children were also allowed to watch the movie inside the cinema halls, despite restrictions.
Protesters including student bodies and several local organisations reported to have chased and abused the audience who had entered halls to watch Jism 2.
Meanwhile, police deployed special securities around all theatres to avoid further protest and violence. Police official has been quoted as saying, "We have taken action to ensure that such incidents do not recur." The Bollywood movie Jism 2, directed by Pooja Bhatt recently got released on Friday, Aug 3.
