NEW DELHI: Pahlaj  Nihalaniwas on Friday sacked as chairperson of Central Board of Film Certification in India ( CBFC), Times Now reported.
According to the news channel, noted adman, song-writer and poet Prasoon Joshi is expected to take charge.

Nihalani has been embroiled in controversy 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 as said to have been pushed by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), which also supported the controversial FTII chairman Gajendra Chauhan.

Not a big news for Salman fans.. Pahlaj Nihlani only used to cut vulgar scenes and dialogues not terrible acting. Otherwise no Salman movie would have released

No news for Salman fans. Salman Khan has remained a conformist and traditional actor who chooses not to cross any decency line for authenticity vs respecting viewer concerns

Great news, pahlaj was a hypocrite, glad he will be gone. Hope prasoon also knows the job of the CBFC is to certify, not to impose their will down the audience's throats.
