Jab Harry Met Sejal 'Intercourse' Row: Silent Pahlaj Nihalani Now Speaks Sanskari

In a dramatic and funny incident around the ‘intercourse’ row related to the upcoming Imtiaz Ali film 'Jab Harry Met Sejal', the Central Board of Film Certification chief Pahlaj Nihalani has come up with his sansakri argument.

So let us take you through the whole itinerary of the row. So what happened was that Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma, in one of the mini trails of 'Jab Harry Met Sejal' used the word ‘intercourse’. Pahlaj Nihalani, adhering to his tradition of giving finger to everything that he possibly can, asked the filmmakers that its use is not appropriate to be aired on TV.

In fact he went further and said to a leading news channel that if they garner 1 lac votes in favour of the usage and that too from the married people above 36 years of age, he would have no issues.

Just yesterday, a reporter from the channel followed Pahlaj Nihalani asking his stance after the channel had managed to get 1 lac support votes. He remained quiet, didn’t utter a word and in fact the reporter followed him inside his elevator-yet no response.

Watch the funny silent Pahlaj Nihalani here:

This video went viral and people started making funny vines and memes immediately. Now he has broken his silence and has a very sanskari argument. Speaking to a leading daily, he said- “She was just a young girl asking these embarrassing questions. Sorry, I may be old fashioned or fuddy-duddy as the news channel calls me. But I can’t talk about sex with a reporter young enough to be my daughter. She insisted and kept following me right into the lift. To my credit, I kept my cool. What if I had lost my temper? She’d gave gone back and made a story about sexual harassment against me.”

In the same interview he also said- I think it’s Shah Rukh’s fans on Twitter endorsing the use of the word ‘intercourse’. He has millions of followers on Twitter. If among them a  lakh say yes to his dialogue, what is the big deal? Show me a lakh of ticket-paying members of the audience approving of an actor with a family image talking so blatantly about sex, and then we’ll see.”

'Jab Harry Met Sejal' is slated to release on August 04 and has so far received amazing response from the audience through its series of mini trails and the 'Radha' song.
