Pahlaj Nihalani sacked as CBFC chief, to be succeeded by Prasoon Joshi

The government on Friday replaced Pahlaj Nihalani with songwriter-poet Prasoon Joshi as the chairperson of the censor board.

Joshi was appointed with immediate effect for a period of three years or until further orders, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry said in a release.

Nihalani has been embroiled in controversies since his appointment as the chief of the 23-member board in January, 2015. For one, he has drawn flak for his prudish views and making his political leaning clear by calling PM Modi his "action hero". His candidature as the CBFC chief was said to have been pushed by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which also supported the controversial FTII chairman Gajendra Chauhan. Last month, it was reported that the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting had said that Nihalani had been informed that he might be replaced.

Meanwhile, Filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri, who has been appointed a member of the censor board, told Delhi-based news agency about the structural changes in the government-appointed body which oversees all movies before they are released in India.

Agnihotri said Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani was looking at the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) with a fresh perspective. "With Prasoon Joshi heading it, it was tempting for me to come on board."

Joshi is known for his contribution to films like "Black", "Taare Zameen Par", "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", "Rang De Basanti", "Delhi-6" and "Neerja" and for designing successful ad campaigns. Honoured with Padma Shri, the National Award winner penned the theme song for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and other campaigns.

Nihalani, who has been a film producer and describes himself on Twitter as "true Indian", took over as CBFC chairperson in 2015 from danseuse Leela Samson, a year after Modi became the Prime Minister.

But he began running into skirmishes with film producers over cuts, beeps and disclaimers he insisted on, which the industry often found unfair.

Hollywood movie "Fifty Shades Of Grey" became the first victim+ to his ways of censorship. It was not allowed to release in India over its erotic content.

Nihalani soon turned his attention to the Indian industry with films like "NH10", "Dum Laga Ke Haisha", "Aligarh", "Udta Punjab", "Haraamkhor", "Lipstick Under My Burkha", "Indu Sarkar" and "Babumoshai Bandookbaaz" facing his wrath.

Even James Bond film "Spectre" couldn't escape his scissors. It was released only after its kissing scenes were cut short.

In "Udta Punjab", a movie about the drug problem in Punjab, Nihalani and his examining committee insisted on as many as 89 cuts, triggering widespread condemnation.

Joshi's appointment as the new censor chief drew appreciation.

Veteran filmmaker Shyam Benegal, who led a panel that has made recommendations for a revamp of the Cinematograph Act, 1952, told IANS: "Prasoon Joshi is an excellent choice. He is a very fine poet and also headed one of the best advertising agencies. So his understanding of the medium is very good."

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, who ran into trouble with Nihalani over his political drama "Indu Sarkar", told IANS: "Prasoon is a very evolved person. He comes from the advertising background and will have a modern point of view. Choosing Prasoon is a welcome decision by the government.

"I would like to thank Smriti Iraniji and Rajyavardhan Singh Rathoreji for their decision. I am sure Prasoon will have a different outlook. He understands today's movies well."

Before cracking down on a variety of movies, Nihalani had produced a string of films including "Paap ki Duniya", "Aag ka Gola", "Shola aur Shabnam", "Aankhen" and "Talaash: The Hunt Begins".

Producer of movie Aankhen which had song "Angna Mein Baba" and "Andaz" which had sanskari songs like "Ye Maal Gaadi" and "Khada Hai"; fired . This cruel world does not like Sanskari people.

Some lines from Sanskari songs


Ye maal gaadi tu dhakka laga
Ye maal gaadi tu dhakka laga
Dhakka laga re dhakka laga
Garam ho gaya engine
Isko dhakka deta jha
Ye maal gaadi tu dhakka laga
Dhakka kaga re dhakka laga
Ye maal gaadi tu dhakka laga
Dhakka lagare dhakka laga
Ye maal gaadi driver main tera
Thoda rukja thoda rukja
Chalu karunga engine iska
Tu darati hai kya ye maal gaadi
Ye maal gaadi tu dhakka laga
Dhakka kaga re dhakka laga

Waqt hai kam aur lamba safar hai
Tu raftar badhade manzil
Par hame pahocha de
Kabhi kabhi hum tez chalenge
Kabhi kahi dam lenge hum dono
Jho chahe karenge aankho ne
Signal hara de diya ab tu soche kya
Ye maal gaadi
Ye maal gaadi tu dhakka laga
Dhakka kaga re dhakka laga
Garam ho gaya engine
Iska dhakka deta jha
Ye maal gaadi driver main tera
Thoda rukja thoda rukja




khada hai khada hai khada hai khada hai khada hai khada hai
dar pe tere aashiq khada hai khada hai khada hai khada hai
dar pe tere aashiq khada hai, khol khol khol darwaja khol
bol bol bol pyaar ke do bol are khol khol khol darwaja khol
bol bol bol arey pyaar ke do bol
khada hai khada hai khada hai dar pe tere aashiq khada hai

tere mathe pe lal lal tika dil lagane ko dil karta hai
tere mathe pe lal lal tika dil lagane ko dil karta hai
teri sagar si ghari aankhe dub jane ko dil karta hai
ja re diwane ja re ja jhute tarifo se tu kyu lute
janu main janu main janu main janu tu chhaliya bada hai
khada hai khada hai khada hai dar pe tere aashiq khada hai
khol khol khol darwaja khol bol bol bol pyaar ke do bol
khada hai khada hai khada hai dar pe tere aashiq khada hai

band khidki hai band darwaja tujhpe naa main kholungi
band khidki hai band darwaja tujhpe naa main kholungi
ghadi ghadi tu kyu satayeh tujhse naa main bolungi
kar de ujale ghungut kyu dale hum tere chahne wale
