Padmavati: Is director Abhishek Kapoor missing Pahlaj Nihalani as CBFC chief?
We all know that ‘Padmavati’ was sent back to the makers by CBFC as their application was incomplete, and now, CBFC chief, Prasoon Joshi has said that the committee has been allotted 68 days to certify a film, so they will take their time to certify it. However, today director Abhishek Kapoor tweeted something which will get you to think. He tweeted that he wonders if things would have been any different, had Pahlaj Nihalani still been the CBFC chief.
The director tweeted, “Wonder if #pahlajnihalani was cbfc chairperson today would things be playing out differently.”

Well, this has also made us think that would it be better if Nihalani was CBFC chief.
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the movie has been facing a lot of problems. First the protest, then the issue with CBFC, and now it has been banned in couple of states already. We just hope that these issues get resolved soon and we get to see ‘Padmavati’ on the big screen.
‘Padmavati’ stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji. The movie was slated to release on December 1, 2017, but it has been postponed. The new release date is yet to be announced. (Also Read: PROOF!
