IS CENTRAL BOARD OF FILM CERTIFICATION CHIEF PAHLAJ NIHALANI GOVING TO BE REMOVED FROM HIS POST BY THE GOVERNMENT ?

 

Central Board of Film Certification chief Pahlaj Nihalani, who is best known for suggesting cuts in films like Udta Punjab, Lipstick Under My Burkha and Jab Harry Met Sejal, has reacted to rumours that the government plans to remove him from his post.  Nihalani said that he hasn’t received any official notification so far but is willing to step down from his post if asked to do so. “It was they who asked me to take over in January 2015. The decision to hire me was a complete surprise to me. I immediately took charge and began working to the best of my abilities. If now I am asked to leave, I’d do so just as swiftly, wishing my successor all the best,” he said.  “So far, I have not heard any such plans from the government. I am sure my well-wishers are holding their breath. But they can exhale for now. As far as being asked to relinquish my post as the CBFC chairperson is concerned, I leave the decision entirely to the government,” he added.  Pahlaj Nihalani was appointed as the chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification on January 19, 2015.    The Rediff.com : 26th.
