He was the reason behind every censorship issues which any movie faced . Whenever scenes from movie were forced to cut or asked to delete, by censor board it was Pahlaj Nihalani behind it. He made his own rules and set such a strict guidelines that even abusive words were not allowed in an"ADULT" rated movie. Let's check out the worst decisions taken by Pahlaj Nihalani.
In March 2015, He cancelled the screening of 50 Shades of Grey, despite of cutting down 70 visuals from the film.
He gave A certification to the movie 'NH10' with 9 cuts
Banned Unfreedom for nudity and sex scenes
He asked the director of Dum Laga Ke Haisha to mute the word Lesbian used in the film.
Kissing scenes in Spectre was too much for him, so he slashed the length of kisses in the film.
Just because 'Aligarh' was based on Homosexuality, the movie was given 'A certification'.
He created a lot off buzz during 'Udta Punjab Release'
The movie was with reference to high level of drug abuse in Punjab,which actually is a truth.But someone from the censor board leaked the movie online before release, and producers had to suffer high loss.
He stayed the release of 'Lipstick under my Burkha'
just because he felt that movie was women oriented, and women should be not be open and expressive about their feelings as shown in the film.
He asked SRK to chop the word 'intercourse' in the 'jab harry met sejal teaser'.
Just because he felt that Indian kids are not Literate enough to understand the meaning of the word.
He was ok to promote the awkward boners in kya kool hai hum series, and mastizaade, and double meaning dialogues in Grand Masti and sequels.
It was high time that Pahalaj Nihalani should retire from CBFC, but thanks to him for coming up with so many scandals (mentioned above), because of recent issues in the Industry he came into limelight and not only whole Industry even his colleague demanded for his exit as chairman.
