Mumbai: Pahlaj Nihalani, who turned the censor board into a precinct of serial controversy, has been sacked as the organisation's chairman. His successor is famous lyricist Prasoon Joshi. Colleagues of Mr Nihalani had accused him of treating the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) like his personal fiefdom, while film makers and critics accused him of demanding irrational cuts and moral policing. Recent scandals involved Madhur Bhandarkar's "Indu Sarkar" which depicts the Emergency, and "Lipstick Under My Burqa" which explores female sexuality and was described as "lady-oriented" by Mr Nihalani who refused to certify it for release.
