As surprising as it might sound, CBFC Chief Pahlaj Nihalani has spoken the golden words cinema lovers wanted to hear since a very long time. He said with regards to Jolly LLB 2 that "it's just a film." Wow! What a sudden change of heart for the CBFC Chief.
The over interference of the Censor Board in movies has caused discomfort among the audiences who spoke to themselves saying 'it's just a movie, they need to get over it'. The legal tussle for Jolly LLB 2 is more or less absurd as the audiences can clearly distinguish the difference between a lawyer's profession and the masala added to it in the films. Also, Pahlaj came in support of Akshay Kumar's film by saying,
"If we judge films according to our individual sensitivities, there will be no cinema left. See, at the end of the day, it's just a film, not a documentary. Kuch toh banaawati hoga (there will be some amount of fictionalisation). We cannot be over-sensitive about every comment or situation in a film."
We assume Pahlaj Nihalani is now a changed man and would treat every film like "it's just a film". After all, the audiences are matured enough to know what is right and what is wrong and cherry picking scenes and dialogues being removed from the film is a huge turn off for today's audiences.
