Pahalaj Nihalani, distributor of upcoming Hindi erotic movie Julie 2 just dropped a bomb amidst all the Padmavati hoopla. If he’s to believed, Julie 2 is based on the bold actress Nagma who went on to do really big in the Indian film industry. It might sound absurd for the moment as the film is yet to hit the theatres, but it might not just be a publicity stunt after all. After Vidya Balan’s portrayal of Silk Smita of south Indian films, this will be a big news round the corner if it turns out to be true. The movie is also making big rounds on the internet because of the raunchy scenes of Raai Laxmi.
Pahlaj is the former Chairman of Central Board of Film Certification under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India and is a well known personality among the industry. However he has said, “The film-makers are withholding the actress’ name to avoid legal trouble for the film. The actress concerned here started her career with a Hindi film featuring one of the Khan superstars. But it was her booming career in the south, in Tamil and Telugu cinema, that made her a star. However, her affair with a married Tamil-Telugu superstar drove her out of the south Indian film industry and she went on to become a big name in Bhojpuri films.”
Yesteryear’s actress Nagma has responded hilariously to the same. She has stated, “Oh, is it? This is news to me. I have no knowledge about it and was not informed about it earlier. I am listening to it for the first time. Maybe the film Padmavati is garnering all the hype and the makers of Julie 2 need some publicity, which is why they might have hinted at such a development.” Well to get all the answers, we will have to wait for the movie to hit the floors and see by ourselves how true this is!
