Pahlaj Nihalani, who was sacked as the chief of the Central Board of Film Certification on Friday, said that he accepts government's decision to remove him from the post. "People were angry with me and there were several complaints against me. The government thought that I'm an embarrassment to them and they took this decision. The film industry is relieved by my ouster. It was good decision by the government," said Mr Nihalani.
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-adman Prasoon Joshi, while actor Vidya Balan joins the board.
