Pahlaj Nihalani, the former CBFC Chairman and the producer of ‘Julie 2′, has recently managed to evoke interest on the film by claiming that it is based on a popular South heroine’s real life. Although he didn’t reveal the actress’ name, he gave enough clues which allegedly pointed all fingers towards Nagma. As rumors have started spreading like wildfire on social media that Julie 2 is based on her life, Nagma has finally responded.
She called it a cheap publicity gimmick of makers, and said that they might have made such claims in order to create hype for their film. She further said that it would be unfair to confront the makers at this point of time as the film hasn’t been released yet. She said that in the wake of rumors connecting her name with the film, she has decided to watch Julie 2, and that she would take an appropriate action only after that.
Buzz is that Julie 2 makers had deliberately revealed the Nagma connection just a few days ahead of release so that she couldn’t take any legal step, and free, albeit cheap, publicity is a bonus.
