We kept on hearing about Pahlaj Nihalani the chief of CBFC making news for his objection on various movies be it Udta Punjab or the recently released movie Lipstick Under my Burkha, however, as per the recent news he is likely to be replaced soon. Yes you heard it right, as the most controversial censor board chief of B Town who has completed two years in his office as CBFC Chief might soon be replaced as the CBFC Chief in the coming times.
The news media reports further suggested that Pahlaj Nihalani has called a meeting of all his CBFC members in Thiruvananthapuram on July 28, 2017. In this meeting he is likely to be suggested to leave. As per the buzz, the filmmaker Prakash Jha and TV producer actor Chandraprakash Diwedi who are the part of the team are now the top contenders to replace Nihalani. In fact, if you remember the recent diktat from him saying that superstars who are seen consuming alcohol or cigarettes on screen must be banned also made news in the media by the currnet chief. He feels that with mere a warning before the movie will not going to solve the purpose and if the movie really has some strong reason to show smoking, the movie should get an A certificate.
Pahlaj was seen talking to a news website wherein he said that merely putting a ticker warning with such scenes in the film will not going to sort out the issue about smoking or drinking scene shown films. The superstars who do such scenes are followed by millions fans they set an example for their societal behavior hence banning is the best solution as they will not be able to provoke for doing so is really strong.
