Pahlaj Nihalani, who was sacked from Censor Board’s chief post, finally seems to be gathering a little support in the light of his legacy. Actress Kalki Koechlin has come forward to his aid. She feels that it was wrong to blame him for all the wrong decisions made during his tenure.
Sharing her mind, Kalki “I think it’s a very negative attitude to put all the blame on him. It’s a combination of people that make up the board, and, if anything, they were equally responsible for whatever happened when Nihalani was the chairperson. To hold someone responsible for all that was wrong with the board is a wrong practice in itself.”
However, Kalki who seems happy about Prasoon Joshi taking over as the new Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chief, say “It’s good that they have chosen someone who is from the film fraternity. I know Prasoon personally. I’ve worked with him in Margarita with a Straw and I know he is a wonderful human being. It’s great that somebody like a Prasoon Joshi is the chairperson of the Censor Board.”
Prasoon was appointed the CBFC chairperson with effect from August 11, 2017 after Nihalani was sacked.
On the work front, Kalki will be next seen in Jia Aur Jia along with Richa Chadha. Helmed by Howard Rosemeyer, the film is a chick flick and is about two girls on a road trip.
