Recently the Censor Board Of Certification (CBFC) chief, Pahlaj Nahlani was back in news for all the wrong reasons of course! Nahlani hit the headline when he refused to give U/A certificate to the second mini trail of ‘Jab Harry met Sejal’. Reason being the word ‘Intercourse’.

Later Pahlaj Nahlani now also being tagged as #SanskariNihalani came out and spoke to Mirror Now news channel and made his point regarding the ‘controversial’ word intercourse.

In a funny twist of tale, the learned CBFC Chief went on to challenge the Aam Janta to raise 1 lakh votes and only then will he pass the trailer with U/A certificate and mind you he made a promise on national television too!

But amidst all of this, Shahrukh Khan and the makers are unfazed, in fact, they are quite clear that if CBFC has a problem they will change it but once they see the film they will understand the context too.

“When they see the film, to be honest, Imtiaz Ali myself, Anushka Red Chillies, we have never felt the need to be disrespectful towards families and never felt the need to put anything of that sort in our film to make it work. It hasn’t gone for censor certification yet, they haven’t seen the entire film yet. Maybe the mini trails might seem out of context that’s why they might have a problem. If they have a problem we will change it but I am sure when they see the entire film they will understand the context and hopefully everything will be good”

Listen in to what Shahrukh spoke about the whole ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ and CBFC issue.
