Pahlaj Nihlani throughout his term as a Chief of Central Board of film Certification became a nuisance for the entire film industry with his (so-called) sanskaari ways. Several filmmakers and producers were irked with his policies, while some even cash in on of this opportunity. And eventually it led to the ouster of Mr. Pahlaj Nihlani. With that Mr. Nihlani created an image of a conservative person and gained the title of ‘Sanskaari'.
Keeping his image in mind, it's obvious to think that the ‘sanskaari ‘ ex-Chief must have moved on but without comprising on his sanskars that he had set during his tenure at CBFC. And If you thought that Pahlaj is upto take the sanskars to next level, then we tell you the ex-Chief is back in the film industry. As per the reports doing the rounds, quite surprisingly Pahlaj ‘Sanskaari' Nihlani will be presenting an upcoming ‘bold, beautiful and blessed' (as promoted by the makers and marketers) sequel of JULIE i.e. JULIE 2.
In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, Nihlani said, “JULIE 2 should be given an ‘A' certificate without any cuts. There is no vulgarity, obscenity or even a language problem. This is a hot seat, you have to be careful with guidelines which are perfect and only the rating system we require.”
He added, “My family loved Julie 2, it's a bold thriller about how talented people come into the industry and then are forced to compromise. It's a good expose with a message for aspiring actors who come from across the county and don't get the right people or platform.”
Director Deepak Shivdasani was quoted as saying, “I started writing the script in 2012 and had discussed the idea with Pahlajji then. He loved it. He is family and after seeing it with his wife recently, he told me ‘Yeh film ab meri hai,' and will be presenting it.”
