New CBFC Chief Prasoon Joshi: "I Respect The Film Industry"

Latest CBFC Chairman Pahlaj Nihalani Sacked

"I have believed that rights and responsibilities are better served with constructive contribution".

"With good intent, I would like to make as much difference as I can", he said. "One of the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) member even asked me why I made the film", the director said. I have no regrets.

Joshi is a National Award-winning lyricist, and has worked on films such as Taare Zameen Par, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Neerja, among other films. Recently, producer Kiran Shroff was questioned for her choice of outfit and the intimate scenes in her movie "Babumoshai Bandookbaaz" in CBFC office.

Joshi had helmed the ad campaign that propelled Prime Minister Narendra Modi into power in 2014.

Nihalani will be replaced by Prasoon Joshi, who is a leading lyricist, screenwriter, poet and marketer. He kept children (and adults) from hearing words like "intercourse" and watching "lady-oriented" films (Lipstick under my Burkha), all "in the interest of the nation".

In a report by IANS, the producer and ex-chairman of CBFC Nihalani expressed his opinions about his sacking and said that he was prepared for it. 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. "I feel we have achieved a lot in the past three years". It took the intervention of Film Certification Appellate Tribunal (FCAT), and A certificate and 27 cuts to finally get the film to the theatres.

Joshi's appointment as the new censor chief drew appreciation. "I wish Prasoon all the luck, and hope his judgment favours art and he remains an artist". He was also awarded Padma Shri in 2015.
