Nihalani

Ever since Pahlaj Nihalani took over as chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), controversies over censorship have become more frequent. Not surprising because the man has view on everything from how long James Bond should kiss to Jungle Book being too scary.

From cutting short Bond's kisses in Spectre to proposing 89 cuts on Anurag Kashyap-produced Udta Punjab seems to only prove Nihalani's self-declared 'sanskari' ways.

Here's a look at the more controversial and troll-worthy quotes from Pahlaj Nihalani:

1. CBFC gave Jungle Book a U/A. And Nihalani's reason: it was "too scary". What about Winnie the Pooh then.

 

2. Regarding Tanmay Bhat's recent spoof video on Lata Mangeshkar and Sachin Tendulkar, Nihalani said the "spoof video is a mockery of democracy. He (Tanmay Bhat) is a repeat offender and should be booked under MCOCA and not given bail."

If that was a mockery of democracy, what about this video below?
