Good intent is the best start: CBFC chief

Good intent is the best start: CBFC chief

When the news that Pahlaj Nihalani was sacked from the post of Central Board of Film Certification chairman was out, social media truly was abuzz. Nihalani, who took the office of the chairperson of CBFC on January 19, 2015, gained infamous reputation for scissoring movies like "Lipstick Under My Burkha", "Jab Harry Met Sejal", "Babumoshai Bandukbaaz", "Udta Punjab' in the recent past". Bearing responsibility and doing my best has been my endeavour.

"One hopes to make a positive difference with the guidance and support of respected minds", he added.

Everybody now knows that Pahlaj Nihalani is now the "former" CBFC chief and that celebrated lyricist Prasoon Joshi has replaced him. In the process, I offended a lot of the so-called progressive elements. I am not yet familiar with the nitty-gritties.

Nagabharana, Ramesh Patange, Vani Tripati Tikoo, Jeevitha Rajasekhar and Mihir Bhuta.

Later speaking to reporters in Mumbai, Joshi said he is glad to have good people on board. All the people, who can join, will make a difference. I will use my experience, as well as my understanding in the best way possible to discharge my duties.

"I had given my consent but then all this has happened so fast".

"I am happy that the film industry has expectations from me".

"I am happy that there are a lot of expectations from me". I will try to take the opinion of people, who have good thoughts, as it is a new thing for me. Believe me, I was brought in as the CBFC chairperson all of a sudden. I got rid of all the middlemen and touts who made money in the censor certification process. I only hope he doesn't reverse the work that I started at the CBFC.

I am returning to my first love, film production, in a big way. I will answer all the questions but let me get a hold on it.

Joshi, a two-time National award-winning lyricist, was born in Almora (Uttarakhand).

The appointment of Prasoon Joshi had led to a feeling of optimism among the film trade, given his credentials of being a creative person - he has come up with handsome lyrics for films like "Black", "Taare Zameen Par", "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag", "Rang De Basanti" and "Delhi-6", and has won a National award for his lyrics for a song in "Taare Zameen Par".
