Mumbai, December 1 (CINEWS): Very educated, all around set sources from the Ministry Of Information and Broadcasting shoot down reports that the Pahlaj Nihalani, the director of Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) is being given walking requests by the I&B service.
As per these reports, the Government’s activity was provoked by the humiliation brought on by a music video that Nihalani had made praising the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ethics and accomplishments.
However agreeing on the source from the I and B Ministry, “No such move is being arranged. The news is ridiculous.”
Nihalani says he is not annoyed by such news reports. “I know who’s planting these stories. So it doesn’t trouble me. On the off chance that the I and B service has an issue with the way I work, they will educate me first and I’d be most glad to do whatever they ask me to. On the off chance that I am requested that progression down, I’ll do as such joyfully. Be that as it may, until then I’ll carry out my occupation sincerely and take after the rules regardless of the amount it rankles my well-wishers.”
On being reached Rajyavardhan Rathore, the clergyman for Information and Broadcasting said, “The CBFC is a self-sufficient body. Without a doubt, the restriction in the past was a great deal more professed than it is currently. However, that is no legitimization (for restriction) and the present government trusts that groups of onlookers are developed. The CBFC ought to work as an accreditation board as opposed to a blue pencil board. The board should likewise work as one.”
Changes in the workings of the CBFC are on the blacksmith’s iron, however not with respect to the chairpersonship. Says Mr. Rathore, “Once the IFFI is over, the Joint Secretary (Films) of I&B service will ponder the working of the board and recommend measure where useful change can be realized”.
