- Pahlaj Nihalani said they've not named the actress to avoid legal hassle
- It's possible that the actress may recognize herself, he said
- Julie 2 will hit the screens on November 24
The lead star of Julie 2, Raai Laxmi, added: "I am not denying the similarities between my character and the actress. These similarities are there. I don't know if they're deliberate or just a coincidence."
Talking about the actress, Mr Nihalani told IANS that she started her career in a Hindi film, co-starring one of the Khan superstars and she soon transitioned into southern cinema, where she became a bona fide star. Her affair with a married Tamil-Telugu superstar ended her career in south and she moved to rule Bhojpuri films.
"It's possible that the actress may recognize herself and come forward. However, we have made sure she is not mentioned anywhere in any of the press meets," said Mr Nihalani.
Julie 2 is now releasing on November 24 along with Kapil Sharma's Firangi.
