Former Censor Board chief Pahlaj Nihalani has turned distributer for ‘Julie 2′, a thriller directed by Deepak Shivdasani. The film is a sequel to the 2004 film ‘Julie’ which Wikipedia describes as an ‘erotic film’. The man who denied a clearance to ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’ for being too ‘lady oriented’ among other things is presenting a film whose tagline is ‘Bold, beautiful, blessed’.

Nihalani, whose censor axe fell down heavily on a lot many films, now believes his film ‘Julie 2′ should get an ‘A’ certificate and be cleared without any cuts. “Julie 2′ should be given an ‘A’ certificate without any cuts. There is no vulgarity, obscenity or even a language problem,” Nihalani told Mumbai Mirror.

Defending his position as CBFC chief as someone who had to follow the rulebook, he added, “”There were cuts because I have followed the guidelines.” Just in case you haven’t seen the trailer of ‘Julie 2′, here have a watch:

Twitter burst into a rather sanskaari climax at the u-turn:

Comic José Covaco? had a brilliant solution to ensure the film sticks to our sanskaars

Palhaj Nihalani’s new film is destroying our Culture and our Sanskaars so I’ve made some options for the poster.

Pahlaj Nihalani, who treated the Censor Board as his personal fiefdom has finally been shown the door and will be replaced by adman, Prasoon Joshi. The controversial filmmaker used the Censor Board to propagate his own agendas and was always panned for his regressive views. Several films had been at the receiving end of his moral policing. Amongst those which, Pahlaj refused to certify was, ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Lipstick Under My Burkha’, ‘KA Bodyscapes’, etc. He used to ask the directors to edit out crucial scenes and dialogues in the films, under the garb of ‘providing wholesome family entertainment’.

If sources are to be believed then Prasoon Joshi will soon be taking over as the new Censor Board chief.
