Few months back, Nihalani as the CBFC chief was seen to object the word "intercourse" in Shah Rukh Khan starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal, expressing his concerns for the under age children. Nihalani went on to say that Julie 2 presents an inside story of the film industry.
When he was asked about the racy material, especially with regard to Nihalani's controversial stance on similar films, Deepak said: "It's a content-driven film and Pahlajji had no objections to any of the scenes". Directed by Deepak Shivdasani, the film will mark Raai Laxmi's debut in Bollywood. "Sanksaari" Pahlaj Nihalani turns distributor for Julie 2.
According to the latest update, Pahlaj Nihalani turns into the distributor for the bold, lovely and blessed film "Julie 2" in which seductive actress Raai Lakshmi is playing the female lead role and it is scheduled to hit the screens on 6th October.
Nihalani has been no stranger to controversy during and even prior to his tenure as the self-proclaimed "sanskaari" Censor Board chief.
Julie 2 is scheduled to release on October 6.
The story of a lovely, aspiring star (played by south actor, Raai Laxmi, in her Bollywood debut) who is exploited by the film industry, and is seemingly the victim of the infamous casting couch, Nihalani described Julie 2 - which he is distributing - as an "adult family film", by which he meant that all the adult members of a family can watch it together.
This movie is that featuring southern sensation Raai Laxmi in the lead role. "This is a hot seat, you have to be careful with guidelines which are flawless and only the rating system we require".
