CBFC Chief Pahlaj Nihalani is controversy’s favourite child. May be he likes the spot. While you may argue that he has a long-debated history with filmmakers and their angst (that’s what happens when you ban films for being ‘lady oriented‘), it is his eccentricities that up the ante every time you think it couldn’t get any worse.
Following the trail, remember when we told you about the news of Pahlaj Nihalani being replaced as the CBFC chairman? Yes, the same claim that Nihalani refuted as soon as he had the mic? Well, guess what…
According to NDTV, Pahlaj Nihalani has been sacked as the chief of CBFC (SIGH) and this is fresh out of the oven!

Reports also say that Prasoon Joshi has been appointed as the new head-honcho of the board.
Needless to say, the news has unleashed a wave of euphoria amongst netizens.
