Japanese porn star Maria Ozawa, better known as Miyabi, will not be arriving in Indonesia.

The decision to cancel her arrival was the result of a meeting between the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and Maxima Productions in Jakarta on Wednesday.

Metro TV reported that Maxima Productions had finally agreed to ditch its plan to import the starlet to appear in a locally produced movie to avoid public controversy. Previously, the production house had denied rumors they would pull the plug on the project and told the media that they would only “delay and reschedule” Miyabi’s visit, following protests.

Miyabi was originally scheduled to arrive in Jakarta this week to start filming for the comedy movie titled “Menculik Miyabi” (“Kidnapping Miyabi”). However, the plan had triggered outcry from religious groups.

Last week, Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) staged a demonstration in front of the production house’s office. Communications Minister Muhammad Nuh also suggested the production house consider public sensitivity and think about replacing Miyabi with a “less controversial actress.”
