Raai Laxmi starrer Julie 2 is based on an actor’s real life story

Julie-2 RAAI LAXMI

BOLLYWOOD: The story of the protagonist in Julie 2 is based on the life of a well-known glamorous actor of the 1990s and 2000s. The film’s makers are withholding the actor’s’ name to avoid legal trouble for the film, says its presenter Pahlaj Nihalani.

As a hint, the actor concerned started her career with a Hindi film featuring one of the Khan superstars. But it was her booming career in the south, in Tamil and Telugu cinema, that made her a star.

However, her affair with a married Tamil-Telugu superstar drove her out of the south Indian film industry and she went on to become a big name in Bhojpuri films. Such incidents and episodes from the real-life actor are replicated faithfully in Julie 2.

Julie 2 lead actor Raai Laxmi said, “I am not denying the similarities between my character and the actor. These similarities are there. I don’t know if they’re deliberate or just a coincidence.”

However, Nihalani said, “It’s definitely based on the actor…. In fact, one of the main actors who is a part of our cast was also involved with that actor. We are not naming her as we don’t want our film to be stopped.

“But once the film opens next Friday, it will be obvious to all which real-life actor Raai Laxmi is playing.”

Does Nihalani anticipate any legal trouble?

The comeback is always stronger than a setback . ❤️🌹 #julie2 #24thNOV
