Queen of controversies and gimmicks, Poonam Pandey, who remains in the news for all the wrong reasons, is going all out to promote her Bollywood debut film Nasha, an erotica directed by Amit Saxena.

The film, which stars newbie teenager Shivam, is a story of a teenage boy who gets infatuated with Poonam.
"I rejected more than 40 films before accepting this one. This is a film which has an interesting story to narrate and has presented the erotic element in the most aesthetic manner, " says Poonam, stressing that people are already aware of her bold personality and are expecting a bold story to be narrated in her debut film.
"This is an interesting film which will not be affected by any kind of protest, " she adds.
The skin show in the posters of Nasha has irked many social groups and moral police, who have demanded a ban on the film.
On Friday, residents of Seemapur, northeastern Delhi, tore the posters of the film, and lodged a complaint at the police station, for releasing a film in the month of Ramzaan.
