Pahlaj Nihalani is the chief of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) who is currently in the storm for suggesting numerous cuts to Udta Punjab.

Chunky then said: “Pahlaj ji is my godfather in the film industry and he gave me birth in the film industry. Nowadays, numerous people call me related to him, I’m very proud of him.”

“As far as Udta Punjab is concerned, I haven’t seen the film but udte toh tote hain, Punjab kaha se udta hai (It’s the parrots that fly, not Punjab). But I don’t know; I can’t tell anything about him,” he added.

Akshay said: “I don’t know when the film is releasing. Do you know when it is releasing?”

On being told that the film, due to release on 17 June, could be delayed, Akshay quipped: “If it gets pushed ahead, so it will be beneficial to us (Housefull 3).”
