Did you know that Pooja Bhatt became intimacy coordinator for Bipasha Basu for her movie Jism?

Firstly what is an intimacy coordinator? An intimacy coordinator is basically a staff member who ensures the well-being of actors who participate in sex scenes or other intimate scenes in theater, film and television production. The concept of an intimacy coordinator is fairly niche in Bollywood. After the MeToo movement in the west, several international projects roped in an intimacy coordinator who would help choreograph scenes involving nudity or sexual content. India, too, witnessed the MeToo movement but hiring an intimacy coordinator is still not as regular practice as in the west. But Pooja Bhatt has recently revealed that she tried to be an intimacy coordinator in her movies much before the term became popular. When she was directing her movie Jism, with Bipasha Basu and John Abraham in the lead, she was not only a director but the intimacy coordinator for Bipasha to ensure she was comfortable in the scene. Shouldn’t this be made mandate on all the film sets to have an intimacy coordinator?
