Pahlaj Nihalani removed as CBFC chief, Prasoon Joshi to replace

The chief of CBFC (Central Board of Film Certification) has finally been removed. He has been subjected to a lot of flak for his brutal censorship of many films like Udta Punjab, Lipstick Under My Burkha, Babumoshai Bandookbaaz etc.

Popular writer-lyricist Prasoon Joshi will be replacing Pahlaj at the helm. Though the official announcement has not been made yet. Pahlaj Nihalani had assumed office in January, 2015.

  1. Apne zamaane me Govinda se "Angana me baba duwaare pe maa" karwaata tha aur budhaape me bada Sanskaari ban rhaa hai. ??????

  2. Finally ! It was high time after all the scandals he created. Let's hope for a more reasonable CBFC.

  3. By the Logic of SRK fans West Indies still the world champions, smart phone is not invented yet and we are still in 1990s. Biggest losers LOL.

    1. Dr.richard 2.0 cool name bro I thought he was harsh but fare but after befikre got passed with 0 cuts I thought what a hypocrite plus it's quite suspicious that under his leadership 3 big films udta Punjab masti 3 and toilet got leaked all were censor prints I watched opening 20 seconds of each and all had a censor watermark. A lot of films had to be reworked and reshot because of him which ruined the impact of the film also.

  4. finally ye panawte ja raha h
    ab Bollywood movie ko hit, super hit, Blockbuster hone se koi nahi rok sakta

  5. I feel sharmila Tagore was right for head of the censor board as she worked in commercial offbeat and art cinema so she knew what was going on I think someone like nana partekar would have been a good fit also but let's see what parsoon does
