Film producer and Former Censor Board Chief Pahlaj Nihalani has filed a plea in Bombay High Court against Censor Board after it reportedly suggested around 20 cuts in his upcoming movie ‘Rangeela Raja’ featuring Govinda.
Blasting at the current censor chief Prasoon Joshi, Nihalani, the veteran filmmaker said, “On one hand, they made me wait for so long and allowed Thugs of Hindostan to get a screening before my film, even though I had applied earlier. Now, I think they are taking some kind of revenge against me. They have given me 20 cuts that are nothing short of ridiculous.”
Nihalani who claims to have followed all the guidelines as the censor chief, accuses Joshi of bending rules to please friends.
