Pahlaj Nihalani

In an unforeseen turn of events, CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani was removed from his post on August 11, Friday. Renowned lyricist Prasoon Joshi took over the chair. Since then, a large number people which includes both members of film fraternity and sincere movie goers, have been expressing sheer satisfaction over the Government’s move.

In conversation with Mid-day over what happened, Nihalani said he had been thoroughly true to his own responsibilities and at the same time, has no regrets.

“I was not shocked at all. I’m happy and relieved. I have done this job to the best of my capacity. I wish all the best to the film industry, and to people who were against me,” he answered, when asked if the Government’s decision shocked him.

“Whatever has happened is the government’s decision. I respect it. I’m happy with my stint as the CBFC chairperson. I’ve always performed my duty with honesty, sincerity. I have no regrets,” he added. (Also Read: The time when Pahlaj Nihalani made Suniel Shetty feel utterly destroyed)

Over the years, Indian cinema has undergone considerable evolution but the guidelines that are to be abided by CBFC have hardly changed. Nihalani, in his conversation, also claimed that he put his best efforts in favour of updated guidelines and sent in his suggestions too.

“Yes, I have tried to do that and sent all suggestions to the government, some time ago. I recommended new CBFC guidelines, and ratings system, even before the Shyam Benegal Committee did. I am a film industry man, so I know its requirements,” he said.

A new committee has been also introduced by CBFC, which includes actress Vidya Balan alongside others.

The film industry looks forward to seeing commendable decisions from Prasoon Joshi and believes he will work to his best ability for Indian cinema.

After three collaborations Akshay Kumar and KriArj Entertainment up for a fourth one?

Akshay Kumar has once again hit the right chord with the audience with his latest offering ‘PadMan’. The film that aims to create awareness about sanitary pads and menstrual hygiene has turned out to be a successful venture for the actor and the makers. After successfully teaming up with producers Prernaa Arora and Arjun N Kapoor’s KriArj Entertainment with three projects namely ‘Rustom’, ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ and the latest being ‘PadMan’, Akshay is all set to work with them for the fourth time.

Confirming about this, producer Prernaa has said in her statement, “Yes, KriArj is lucky enough to be doing our fourth film with Akshay Kumar. After ‘Rustom’, ‘Toilet – Ek Prem Katha’ and ‘PadMan’, my partner Arjun N Kapoor and I have established a fabulous rapport with Akshay. We are willing to go along with any project that Akshay sir wants. Akshay sir has discussed a particular idea with us. And we are all for it.” (Also Check: Akshay ‘PadMan’ Kumar launches a sanitary pad vending machine in Mumbai. VIEW PICS)

“Whatever KriArj is today is because of Akshay sir. I owe him my entire career. Working with him, I’ve learnt so much about life and cinema. I never ask him about the subject of the film he wants to make with us. We will blindly produce any film that he wants us to be part of. That’s the kind of trust and respect we have for him,” added the producer.

The details for this project are still kept under wraps. But, according to a source this movie will be more in the fun zone, and will surely have an underbelly of social relevance as well. T

Well, we are hoping for yet another entertainer with a strong social message.

Aren’t you excited for this already?
