Chaos At The CBFC Office, New Chief Reports Unwell On Day One

On Monday it was Prasoon Joshi’s first day as  the new chairperson of Central Board Of Film Certification(CBFC).

Unfortunately Prasoon was under the weather and could not attend office, thereby precipitating a  situation  of utter pandemoniam at  the CBFC  office in Mumbai.

Reports  a CBFC source, “On Friday  before Pahlaj Nihalani left his office  he had certified many films  including Ashwini Iyer Tiwari’s Bareilli Ki Barfi and the Siddharth Malhotra-Jacqueline Fernandez thriller A Gentleman scheduled to be  released on the two Fridays to come one after the other. These producers  were  to collect their censor certificates on Monday as per the rules. When Prasoon Joshi didn’t turn up at the CBFC office on Monday , all hell broke loose since there was no chairperson to organize the  smooth delivery of the certificates.”
In  a panic the producers of  Bareilly Ki Barfi whose release  is this Friday contacted Phalaj Nihalani.

Says Nihalani, “I had no choice but to step in help them out. Otherwise they wouldn’t have got the certificate. Bareilly Ki Barfi would have definitely missed its release this Friday.”

Prasoon Joshi is expected to start attending  office as  the new CBFC chairperson from Friday.
