Producer Pahlaj Nihalani is upset with Kangana Ranaut for accusing him of trying to cast her in a soft-porn like
Producer and former chairperson of the censor board, Pahlaj Nihalani, is suddenly in the news again, thanks to the ever-newsy Kangana Ranaut, who lashed out at Nihalani, saying, “Pahlaj Nihalani had offered me a film called I Love You, Boss. They had organised a photo shoot where they gave me a robe to wear and no undergarments. So, all I had was a satin robe for a show-girl pose, from which I had to stick my leg out while walking out of the darkness. I was supposed to play a young girl lusting after her middle-aged boss. So it was a soft-porn kind of character. And I had this epiphany that I cannot do this. I felt like this is exactly what my parents were talking about. I actually went through the photo shoot, but then I disappeared. I changed my number.”
Nihalani has a very different story to tell. “First of all, I wasn’t even there when the photo-shoot happened. Kangana had gone for the shoot with her then secretary Rakesh Nath, who also looked after Madhuri Dixit. So what she had to wear for the photo-shoot or what she did not wear was not my look-out.
