Pahlaj Nihalani takes charge as new Censor Board Chairman!

The government on Monday appointed filmmaker Pahlaj Nihalani as the new chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification, apart from nine new members.


According to a report in a leading daily, the new board comprises Mihir Bhuta, a noted scriptwriter whose works include the 'Mahabharata' television series, film-maker Chandra Prakash Dwivedi, who directed the TV series 'Chanakya', Ramesh Patange, the former editor of an RSS affiliated weekly, actor George Baker, Tamil film producer S Ve Shekhar, Prof Syed Abdul Bari, actor and BJP leader Jeevitha, former BJP national secretary national Vani Tripathi Tikoo and director Ashoke Pandit.


"In exercise of the powers conferred by sub-section (1) of section 3 of the Cinematograph Act, 1952 (37 of 1952) read with rule 3 of the Cinematograph (Certification) Rules, 1983, the Central Government is pleased to appoint Shri. Pahlaj Nihalani as Chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification in an honorary capacity from 19th January, 2015 for a period of three years or until further orders, whichever is earlier," read the report in the leading daily.


The appointments follow after last week's controversy involving the previous chairperson Leela Samson, who along with nine colleagues, resigned in protest against government influence on the board.
