Ex CBFC Chief Pahalaj Nihalani received a lot of hate during his tenure as the chairperson of censor board due to his unnecessary strict approach towards bold films. Nihalani was sacked by the CBFC last month from his position by the government and he went back to his film distribution business and is already back with the film Julie 2 which is a sequel to Neha Dhupia starrer Julie which released many years ago. Now the sequel has been passed by the CBFC under the leadership of new chairperson Prasoon Joshi without any cuts with an A certificate. "CBFC has followed the guidelines thoroughly. Every producer should know what the guidelines are. None of the scenes or dialogues has been cut from the film. As I said before, and I maintain Julie 2 is a clean family adult film," Nihalani blatantly tried to defend himself.

He further said that the makers haven't used bad language in the film and he feels that he would have passed the film without any cuts despite the bold content in the movie. The film industry was fed up with Pahalaj Nihalani's strict approach towards films and there was a sense of relief among filmmakers when the news of Pahalaj Nihalani's sacking came to light. Prasoon Joshi is expected to make the process of censorship smooth for the filmmakers. Prasoon Joshi has been very positive in his interviews about his tenure as the CBFC chief and wants to make some real progress under his leadership.
