Good Intent Is The Best Beginning: Prasoon Joshi On Being Appointed New CBFC Chief
Netizens and movie lovers rejoiced the sacking of Pahlaj Nihalani as censor board chief and are applauding the government’s move to replace him with Prasoon Joshi on the post. Nihalani grabbed headlines for his unfair treatments to films and the unreasonable cuts to most of the content driven flicks. Other than replacing Nihalani, the government also reconstituted the existing board. One of the board members also include actress Vidya Balan.
After his appointment, Joshi said, "Good intent is the best beginning. Bearing responsibility and doing my best has been my endeavour. I have believed that right and responsibilities are better served with constructive contribution". Even the actress is also striving for a change in the industry.
She said, "I hope to fulfil my responsibilities as a member to the best of my abilities. I look forward to this new and exciting phase where our cinema will be allowed to reflect the sensibilities, realities and complexities of the society we are living in today".
The new members include Vidya Balan, Vivek Agnihotri, Gautami Tadimalla, Narendra Kohli, Naresh Chandra Lal, Neil Herbert Nongkynrih, Waman Kendre, T S Nagabharana, Ramesh Patange, Vani Tripati Tikoo, Jeevitha Rajasekhar and Mihir Bhuta.
