'Sanskari' Pehlaj Nihalani to promote Bold, Beautiful and Blessed 'Julie 2'
Mumbai: After being removed as the chief of the Central Board of Film Certification, where he preached the Indian culture and values, Pahlaj Nihalani is making a comeback in the Film Industry and will be presenting the Bold, Beautiful and Blessed 'Julie 2'.
When asked to the director of the movie Deepak Shivdasani, "I started writing the script in 2012 and had discussed the idea with Pahlaj then. He loved it. He is family and after seeing it with his wife recently, he told me ‘Yeh film ab meri hai,’ and I will be presenting it.”
Deepak added, "It’s a content-driven film and Pahlaj ji had no objections to any of the scenes.This isn’t the first time Nihalani has been associated with controversial material - during his career as producer, he made several films that included suggestive scenes, films like Andaz and Aankhein."

Nihalani, who attracted many controversies for making cuts in the movies like Udta Punjab and Lipstick Under My Burka, when asked about Julie 2, 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. Julie 2 would be doing aspiring actors a favour by not sugar-coating the realities of the industry.
He said, “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.”
