In an open challenge to the people at large, Nihalani had demanded one lakh votes to clear the promos of Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’.

When a channel finally got the votes, they sent a reporter to make Nihalani abide by his statement.

In a video released by Mirror Now, one can see a visibly annoyed Nihalani being awkwardly silent as the reporter ‘breaks’ the news to him and asks for his response.

In spite of her constantly asking, “The youth is with us. What do you have to say?”, Nihalani gets to the furthest corner of the elevator, pretending not to hear the reporter.

At the end, ‘helpless’ Nihalani gets off the elevator without giving an answer.

For the uninitiated, Censor Board Chief Pahlaj Nihalani refused to pass the trailer of Shah Rukh Khan- Anushka Sharma starrer film for it objected to the word ‘íntercourse’ which was used in one of its mini trails titled ‘Indemnity Bond’.

The  romance-drama Jab Harry Met Sejal, which is directed by Imtiaz Ali’s, stars Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles. The movie is slated to release this coming August 4.
