We earlier told you about RGV’s ‘Guns & Thighs’ might start a Razzies for short films. Now, Pahlaji Nihalani, the CBFC Chief has come out all guns blazing against the frontal nudity, cuss words and the all around non-existence of any film-making skills in the film.

He has soundly criticised Ram Gopa Varma and all film-makers who are using the web space to experiment with bolder concepts. During an interaction, Pahlaj has sounded out the names of Ekta Kapoor, Anurag Kashyap and Ram Gopal Varma and said that they use the webspace to vent their secret fantasies.

While there is some justification to what Pahlaj has to say about RGV, we wonder why Ekta won his ire. Ekta’s web-series are nothing but an evolution of her middle-class baiting series, only the concepts are supposed to be bold. It’s wrong to even compare Ekta’s series to the RGV ‘Guns & Thighs’. Let’s hope these very different concepts are not bracketed together.
