And show to people the way you are doing sex." He also added that he had no double standards with regard to censorship and that the release of Masaanand Margarita, with a Straw stand testimony to that.
In the interview, Nihalani confidently stated that if movies were made available on online media platforms, he was positive that the government would ensure censorship there as well.
