CBFC Chief Pahlaj Nihalani to own all rights to be 'Sanskari'!
Popularly known as 'Sanskari Nihalani', Chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) Pahlaj Nihalani seems to be deeply in love with the word 'Sanskari.' Actually, Nihalani has requested the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) to register the title 'Sanskari' for one of the forthcoming movie to be made under his banner, Chirag Deep International on Nov 28.

It is not too long that 'Sanskari James Bond' was trending on social media. Besides, Central Board Chief, Nihalani is also lovingly called as 'Sanskari,' due to his continuous effort to make each film clean. And now he has established his love for the title. "Yes, I have registered the title, it's a good one," he said to Mirror. "If you can have a film titled Sanyasi, why can't you have one called Sanskari?"

When asked about the film, Nihalani said that he has yet to come up with a subject. "Title bahut achcha hai, ab kuch sochenge (the title is very good, we'll think of something now). I write my own scripts so I'll come up with something myself," he added.

Nihalani has been criticized vastly on social media platforms for his unnecessary steps to conceal films for anything he believes is morally incorrect. His continuous steps to make film 'Sanskari' including the introduction of a list of 'cuss words and expressions, deletions, mutes and replacements' in films has earned him the title of "Sanskari" Censor Chief.

And after the duration of James Bond's kiss was reduced by few seconds in lately released Spectre, this idea of him being too Sanskari was strengthened even further.

When quizzed on the subject, Nihalani had said earlier, "So why didn't people object to the earlier Bond films? There was not a single kiss shown in Skyfall. That time no one thought of the sanskari thing? We have passed the kiss! We only asked them to reduce the duration by 20 seconds."

Today, people are publicly expressing what's in their mind. So, someone put out a wrong story and social media picked it up. They have harmed the film and its producer, he said then on the 'Sanskari James Bond' trend.

The Censor Board has decided to amend the guidelines. It has recommended new certification categories such as 12, 12+, 15, 15+, A, A+ and A++. When asked how he feels about being called the 'Sanskari' Censor Chief, he laughed saying, "No comments."
