On Friday evening a news broke out that shook the entire film fraternity, rather with joy. Pahlaj Nihalani, who has been a controversy’s child for a while, has been removed as CBFC Chief. The reports confirmed that popular lyricist Prasoon Joshi is all set to replace him. His colleagues have accused him of using CBFC like his personal fiefdom. Since Nihalani had been making headlines infamously, Twitterati couldn’t contain their joy after they got the news of former CBFC chief being replaced. Here are some hilarious trolls and memes that circulated on social media after Pahlaj Nihalani’s removal as Central Board of Film Certification Chief.
“Now so that Pahlaj Nihlani is gone from Censor board, Bollywoof film makers can use their freedom to make same shitty movies as they do now”

Some Twitterati are sad because they can’t make Nihalani jokes anymore.

There had been rumours that Pahlaj Nihalani might lose his job soon. Many people from inside the film industry were unhappy with his work. In one of his greatest controversies, he objected to movie Lipstick Under My Burkha for being too lady oriented. Earlier this year, he sparked controversy when he demanded to remove the word ‘intercourse’ from Jab Harry Met Sejal trailer. The former CBFC Chief faced a major Twitter backlash when he demanded 89 cuts from the movie Udta Punjab and even asked the makers to drop the word ‘Punjab’ from its title.
