The poster and trailer of the film hit social media on Monday, giving way to trolls lampooning the ex-CBFC chief with much of the humour focused on Nihalani‘s role reversal. However, Nihalani, the former censor board chief who was dismissed last month after repeatedly inviting charges of unjustified cuts, bans and moral policing, remains unperturbed about his double standards. “I loved the film when I saw it a week back. It’s a message-oriented film with a bold and beautiful subject. It tells the true inside story of how the Bollywood industry works,” he told TOI, while reiterating: “This is not an erotic thriller. It is a bold film with necessary adult content. If I was still the chair, this film would have passed the censors. I expect an ‘A’ certification.”
During his two-and-a-half-year stint, Nihalani had tried to promote what he called “clean” Hindi films that endorsed “traditional values”. “What I did back then was my responsibility for what I was assigned. Now I’m playing the role of a distributor,” he said.
