Well, nothing official about it. But the market is buzzing with this rumour that is not at all good news for the so called ‘sanskari’ CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani.
According to a report in TOI, the Ministry of information and broadcasting are considering a replacement to CBFC chief post which is occupied by Pahlaj Nihalani since 2015.
Surprisingly, names like Prakash Jha and TV producer-actor Chandraprakash Dwivedi are popping up who have had their good share of controversies with CBFC regarding their films, Jha’s LIPSTICK UNDER MY BURKHA is the latest, and previously Diwedi had a tough time regarding MOHALLA ASSI starring Sunny Deol.
Pahlaj Nihalani has been continuously making headlines for his objections and suggestions during film certification making his opponents call his suggestions as ‘diktat’ ad going further in accusing the CBFC chief for making an attempt to curb their freedom of expression as an artiste.
Pahlaj Nihalani was unable for his comments regarding this.
