Further, explaining he went on and said that he was glad to have brought happiness in the filmmaker’s’ life.
“I believe he has been singing songs after my exit from the CBFC. Glad to bring happiness in his life. But some of the others ‘welcoming the change’ have been telling me to my face that they had no problem with me at the CBFC. And now they say they’re happy to see me go?”
In a recent conversation with a leading lady, an elated Anurag Kashyap opened his heart out on the news of Pahlaj Nihalani’s exit from the CBFC.

Something you’ve been waiting for, and it suddenly happens, it’s like wow! Did this really happen? And that, too, before my film came out.”
Nihalani’s stint as the chief of the film censor board was full of controversies over cuts, beeps and disclaimers being demanded in movies. The lyricist and screenwriter Prasoon Joshi has been appointed as the CFBC’s chief.
