Pahlaj Nihalani says Karan Johar can come to CBFC with Ok Jaanu, without worries?


Pahlaj Nihalani, the chairman of CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) has said that Karan Johar can come to the censor board with Ok Jaanu — his latest movie that addresses live-in relationships — without worrying.

Pahlaj clarified the perception that CBFC goes soft on Yashraj movies. He said “You mean because we cut the kisses in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and not in Befikre?”

The CBFC had gone hard on Karan Johar‘s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil for it’s kissing scenes. But then came Yashraj‘s Befikre where the CBFC passed kissing scenes and even a naked male butt.

“Firstly, let me make it very clear that there was no kiss between Ranbir Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to cut in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Yes, we did cut the kiss between Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma because we felt that the kiss was unduly prolonged.”

Karan Johar also had a lot of difficulty releasing Ae Dil Hai Mushkil because of the presence of Pakistan actor Fawad Khan. Pahlaj Nihalani pointed out that he supported Karan Johar on that issue.

“Secondly, when his film was in trouble over the presence of a Pakistani artiste, I was one of Karan’s most vocal supporters. Karan is the son of my old friend, the wonderful Yash Johar who was one of the most upright and kind souls in this film industry. Karan is like my own son.”

“Let him come to the censors with Ok Jaanu, ekdum befikre. We’ll do whatever is the right thing to do.” Said Pahlaj Nihalani.

OK Jaanu, a Hindi remake of the Tamil blockbuster “Ok Kanmani” stars Shraddha Kapoor and Aditya Roy Kapoor. The movie shows a live in relationship of a couple who do nt believe in marriage and just want to stay together. The trailer of the film has already generated a lot of curiosity. A recently released remake of the iconic song Humma Humma has gone viral on social media.
