Former CBFC chief and producer Pehlaj Nihalani is gearing up for his upcoming release Julie 2, which is being distributed by him. While promoting the film, Nihalani interacted with media and in media interaction, Nihalani stated that at one side actor like Aamir Khan makes song like D.K. Bose and on other hand, he demands certification for the film that doesn’t suit actor like him.
“If you have a voice, face and fan following then you should recommend the government to bring rating system. Why they talk only when their film is about to release and they feel that a certain kind of film can face objection from CBFC and that time only you raise your voice because even CBFC committee member get away with big stars and other things. They think that we are watching a film of big star so it changes their attitude. In front of influential personalities, people tend to change their body language, thinking and attitude so they get away with such kind of thing. I feel if you are powerful then you should recommend the government to bring rating system in the CBFC”.
“On behalf of industry and as CBFC chairman, I recommended that there should be at least 6 rating system which doesn’t fall under present guideline so that we can cover that as well but Shyam Benegal committee said that it should be completely reformed. Shyam Benegal as a filmmaker always made film which had adult content right from Ankur, Nishant and Mandi so he thinks that there shouldn’t be certification only but I feel its license for the producer to release their film”.
Julie 2 revolves a girl who aspires to be an actress. However, she has to deal with lecherous men who ask her for sexual favors in order to become a “superstar”. In between all this, there is also some group which is threatening to harm and kill her. Overall, it looks like a dark tale of a woman stuck in a web of show business.
Directed by Deepak Shivdasani, ‘Julie 2’ is all set to hit theatres on 6 October 2017.
