Controversial sanskari censor board chief, Pahlaj Nihalani had made some strong comments after getting fired from the post of censor board chairperson. “I have done my job of restricting the vulgarity and obscenity in films, now without strong censorship filmmakers will resort to showing pornography and vulgarity even in normal films, which in turn increases such incidents in real life as well” shared Pahlaj Nihalani
He revealed that he first came to know about his dismissal from the media but not from the government and also supported himself saying that most of the filmmakers liked his work and only 2% of filmmakers did not like the way he was running things and they had worked behind his back by influencing people in top positions to get him fired.
Nihalani whose term was supposed to end in January 2018 will now leave office five months before his tenure due to frequent controversies and tussles with filmmakers. Bollywood lyricist Prasoon Joshi will now take charge of the CBFC for 3 years with immediate effect. Actress Vidya Balan, Jeevitha Rajasekhar and Gauthami have also been included in the CBFC board. Meanwhile netizens are having field day by making fun of Pahlaj Nihalani’s dismissal
