Pahlaj Nihalani has been sacked as the chairman of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) following accusations that he treated the censor board like his personal fiefdom. Nihalani was also accused of demanding irrational cuts and moral policing. Famous lyricist Prasoon Joshi, who won the Padma Shri in 2015, is reported to succeed Nihalani. Joshi, a 45-year-old, had written the lyrics for PM Modi's anthem for the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
