When we say Pahlaj Nihalani, it is generally to let you know that he has gone snipetty clip on yet another film. The man enjoys his scissors, even James Bond realizes that. Udta Punjab nearly had its wings cut on account of the edit board boss. Just this time, Pahlaj is putting his weight behind a film, Tiger Shroff-starrer A Flying Jatt.
We had no clue that of the considerable number of movies this 'Maker Director A True Indian' more likely than not seen amid his time at the Central Board of Film Certification, he would discover a superhero film "authentic". In any case, Nihalani is only that sort of a person. He took to Twitter to discuss A Flying Jatt that stars Tiger and Jacqueline Fernandez, "#FlyingJatt is an Indian Superhero graced by Wahe Guru ji. Will make a History at BO; may help us to remember film JaiSantoshiMaa. @iTIGERSHROFF."
We are cheerful that A Flying Jatt has Nihalani's vote of certainty. We are all film buffs here and a decent Indian superhero is incredible news and Nihalani beyond any doubt cherished this one. "There were numerous spots when I had a craving for applauding, I think kids will applaud as well," he told Times of India in a meeting.
Presently this is the same man who was terrified when he viewed Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book. Truth be told, he was so agonized over what Messrs Bagheera, Baloo and Kaa were up to that he gave the film a U/A rating. "Kindly don't pass by the notoriety of the book. See the film and after that settle on the reasonableness of the substance for children. The 3D impacts are scary to the point that the creatures appear to hop right at the audience,” he had said then. Poor Favreau, felled by superior technology!
A Flying Jatt will face no such problem. For however hard we try, our special effects make bad guys look more funny than scary. And then, there is always God looking out for the young children in A Flying Jatt. All Mowgli had was Baloo and Bagheera.And for all those producers and filmmakers wondering about how to save their films from the ruthless scissors, here
is how to do it — absolutely no sex of any kind, kisses if you are pushing it but keep it to a sanskaari length, no 3D animals that seem to jump right at you, no mention of Punjab (Jatt is fine though) and try to get God in the mix. If your film still gets cut, take heart from the fact that even Jon Favreau and Sam Mendes have been here before.
