Censor Board’s former Chief, Pahlaj Nihalani is facing a tough time with the body to get a clean chit for the release of his directorial, Rangeela Raja starring Govinda. Censor Board has ordered 20 cuts in the film, citing them as vulgar and objectionable and this is not acceptable by Pahlaj Nihalani. The film was slated to release this Friday (Nov 16).

As we told you that Nihalani appealed to the Vacation Bench of the Bombay High Court to overrule the Censor Board's decision, but was told that 'the matter is not urgent and he will have to wait'. Finally, the bench heard the matter yesterday, but could not come to any conclusion. When the bench asked Nihalani that why he didn’t approach the revising committee or tribunal for the matter, the director replied that Censor Board Chief, Prasoon Joshi was not in India. However, the opposition contested this and said that Joshi was very much in India. With both sides presenting a different picture, the Vacation bench said that now the matter will be heard by the regular court on Nov 19 and the decision will be taken by them.

We spoke to Nihalani and asked if he now intends to take his film to Tribunal, to which he replied, “I haven’t made up my mind yet on it.” The former Censor Board Chief, who has been thrown in total disarray added, “I have already incurred losses and now with no exact release date in sight, my promotion and distribution plans have gone for a toss too. This is a personal grouse Prasoon has against me. I continue to get harassed, what else can I say?”
