[India], September 5 (ANI): Chairman of Film and Television Institute of India Gajendra Singh Chauhan has hit out at former CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani over the upcoming movie 'Julie 2,' saying that he shouldn't comment on something he isn't entitled to.

"It is sad that a person who was sacked from a particular seat for commenting on something that he isn't entitled to is doing the same thing again. So it doesn't matter when a person says anything like that," he said, while speaking to ANI.

He also said that Nihalani had previously paid the price for going overboard with his comments.

Chauhan also lamented the fact that someone like Nihalani, who was a producer-director in Bollywood, has resorted to such measures.

He said, "It's sad to see that someone like him who was a big producer and the president of our association say things like this. Age has probably caught up with him."

Nihalani, often criticized for censoring the content of the films, will this time be "presenting" the upcoming sequel to the 2004 Neha Dhupia's erotic film, 'Julie.'

Speaking about the movie, Nihalani said, "Julie 2 should be given an 'A' certificate without any cuts."

'Julie 2,' which is written and directed by Deepak Shivdasani and produced by Vijay Nair, features Raai Laxmi in the lead role. (ANI)
