    Pahlaj Nihalani is on fire as he reveals some sensational details about the Censor Board functioning and Ministry’s meddling in an Exclusive and Explosive interview to Bharathi Pradhan, Lehren TV. The controversies that started with Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Udta Punjab’ continued till Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Indu Sarkar’. Nihalani was replaced by Writer and Lyricist Prasoon Joshi.

    “The only call I got from Smriti Irani (as I & B Minister) was when she called to ask me why I wasn’t passing Indu Sarkar,” says Pahlaj Nihalani in an explosive exclusive to Bharathi S Pradhan & Lehren. “To this day I haven’t been officially told by the minister that I’ve been replaced. I think I was thrown out because of Indu Sarkar!”

    Blasting Kabir Khan as an ingrate, he also exposed the I & B Ministry by revealing that he was told to see that Bajrangi Bhaijaan was not released during Eid but he saw nothing wrong with the film and ensured its smooth entry into theatres in time for the festival.

    From Akshay Kumar complaining about him in Delhi over Toilet… to the ministry telling him not to pass Udta Punjab,  Pahlaj Nihalani fires salvo after salvo in an hour-long interview on camera. And answers if Ekta Kapoor had a hand in his termination. Exclusively to Lehren.

    Intriguing that he was never officially told by the I & B Ministry that he had been sacked. In fact, he was doing his work of certifying a slew of films (including Bareilly Ki Barfi so that it got released on time) at the CBFC office when he got to know about it from the media. In fact, to this day, nobody from the ministry has communicated the news of his removal to him!

    While we cannot deny the fact that almost all the films suffered the cut of his censor scissors, with all these revelations from the former chief many details came forward which was not known to the world till date. We are sure many unanswered questions were answered with this interview.
