Pahlaj Nihalani’s Controversial Tenure As CBFC Chief Ends With Prasoon Joshi’s Replacement

Th day has finally come when and I am sure people were eagerly waiting for this. It’s shocking but Chief of Central Board of Film Certification Pahlaj Nihalani has been sacked from his post. Yes, you heard it right!

Colleagues of Nihalani  had accused him of treating the CBFC like his personal fiefdom. On the other hand, filmmakers and critics accused him of demanding irrational cuts and moral policing.


Pahlaj always made headlines for all the wrong reasons during his tenure. From the filmmakers to critics to the actors, everyone was unhappy with his way of working.

Anyways, it will be a sigh of relief for everyone in the film industry as renowned lyricist Prasoon Joshi has been chosen to be the new chairman of CBFC. Now that’s really a good decision!


Pahlajs’ most controversial censor board judgement towards film’s certification includes Udta Punjab where he demanded 89 cuts and the most recent one was Lipstick Under My Burkha where he refused to certify the film as it was a lady-oriented movie.


If Pahlaj would have mended his ways of working then his tenure wouldn’t have ended on such a bad note.

We hope Prasoon will fulfill all his responsibilities with full dedication!
