Pahlaj Nihalani on erotic thriller 'Julie 2': There is no vulgarity

Pahlaj Nihalani on erotic thriller 'Julie 2': There is no vulgarity”

"I loved the film when I saw it a week back".

Julie 2 had already made headlines following the release of its sensual teaser, featuring actress Raai Laxmi.

"You haven't watched the film, so watch it to judge it".

The former chairman had earlier restricted himself from certifying Lipstick Under My Burkha citing it as a "lady oriented film".

Pahlaj Nihalani sure has some high expectations from the CBFC regarding his own film, and is defending the sexual content in the film when he banned the word "intercourse" in "Jab Harry Met Sejal" and even chopped a kissing scene in the James Bond movie "Spectre", among several others.

Reminded of that, Nihalani retorted at the media meet here: "That was U/A (unrestricted public exhibition, subject to parental guidance for children below the age of twelve). I am no more CBFC head, so stop assigning that post to me anymore". "I am sanskaari, the soil of India has sanskaar, and without sanskaar, we are nothing", he said, as some sections of the audience audibly sniggered, while his supporters, forming a flank near the doors, cheered loudly. "Whatever the CBFC will give (in terms of cuts or certification), we will accept", Mr Nihalani told the press, reports IANS.

A poster for the film shows a woman with a bare torso, her breasts covered strategically by a book. There are a few scenes in the trailer that are absolutely cringe-worthy.

Ex CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani is very well known for his sanskaari acts.

Pahlaj Nihalani strikes back with yet another controversy, this time not for censoring scenes but presenting an erotic film, Julie 2 and distributing it worldwide without cuts. I have no problem with A certification. But this is not the platform for discussing my past. If I was still the chair, this film would have passed the censors.

Julie 2 is all set to hit the silver screen on October 6. Those who called Pahlaj Nihalani sanskari, eat crow.

Director Abhishek Kapoor tweeted: "Whaaatt".

He is the man with the most scandalous tenure as the CBFC chief and is behind statements that say movies like Omkara and Gangs of Wasseypur should not have been allowed to be released, only because the actors in the movies used cuss words. Raai Laxmi would be playing the lead role. "The film talks about how one handles it when faced with such a situation".
