The Metropolitan Police Division 1 said that representatives of the company arrived at Chanasongkram Police Station on Wednesday morning (Jan 17) to seek permission for the shooting of the Indian film Happy Bhag Jayegi Return (2018) on Khao San Rd from 7am to 8pm on Wednesday and yesterday (Jan 18).

The station gave permission because the company promised that the film-making would promote Thailand and its positive image. The project already received a green light from the Tourism Department.

From 9:30am to 11:30am on Wednesday the crew had women wear swimsuits and placed stalls of swimsuits and adult toy signs on the road. After being reported, local police halted the film-making.

A video clip and many pictures of the actresses and materials were shared in social media.

Police charged the crew and the film producer with causing public embarrassment and untidiness, blocking a road, and showing pornographic materials. They are liable to a jail term of up to three years and/or a fine of up to B60,000.

The Metropolitan Police Division 1 quoted actresses as saying that the scene was supposed to take place in China, with no mentioning of Khao San Rd.

According to the Tourism Department website, Indo Bangkok Films Co was based in Pattaya City, Chonburi province.

The website of the company showed that its founder and chief executive was Dilbir Singh Sahni and the company served Indian clients.

Happy Bhag Jayegi Return (2018) is a sequel to the comic-caper of the same title made in 2011.

Indian actresses Sonakshi Sinha and Diana Penty star in it.

Prostitution is not illegal, only third party benefiting from it, a sensible law, of course as it's usually men who  use prostitutes. 
Whereas a woman wanting to have a device to achieve orgasms is criminalized. Yes, that is sexism

Sounds like the police and tourism department didn't mind pocketing "fees" to allow this, then they respond with righteous indignity when it actually occurs. Sounds like a great opportunity to double ding the Indians. Just so ridiculous that the sex tourism capital of the world gets so greatly offended over vibrators, but take a walk in Pattaya or Phuket and get inundated with pingpo...

Any reply will probably be deemed sexist by the enquirier with incorrect facts.

When people can pay prostitutes, (quite legally in fact,) but people  cannot procure a simple vibrator, what is that called? Look at  the preponderance of genders of who does what for the answer.

For stalls with sex toys a prison time and/or fine up to B60,000 , for causing public embarrassment, untidiness, and showing pornographic materials?

The man, public masturbator on Phuket, 2 times violations of trespassing, disturbing a woman, and publicly masturbating got only B1,000 fine.

Do I miss something?  
Oh, yesss! Of course, on Phuket was no untidiness of the road charge.
