The CBFC chief had praised the upcoming superhero film on Twitter.
Pretty much 60% of Udta Punjab's success credit should go to CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani and his adamant stance that the film insults the state of Punjab and should not be released. Naturally, people protested against it, there were angry tweets and Facebook posts about the decision and the film got a lots of publicity. So apparently Pahlaj Nihalani is also an accidental PR agent.
So after giving Udta Punjab unexpected success, Pahlaj Nihalani is now giving some deliberate publicity to Tiger Shroff's upcoming film A Flying Jatt. In a rare occurrence, the Censor Board chief had congratulated the makers of the film and said it was blessed by Wahe Guru ji and will create history at the box office.
When Mumbai Mirror spoke to Nihalani about this, he said, "There are many positives in this film which will appeal to the entire family. There were many places when I felt like clapping, I think children will clap too." Though, he admits that it is his individual opinion...
But why comparisons with Jai Santoshi Maa? He continued, "Jai Santoshi Maa (a low-budget 1975 film which went on to become of the biggest grossers ever) was liked by the masses. This film too, set against the backdrop of religion, will touch the hearts of the common man. It's a masala movie with a message."
