News Helpline | February, 18 2015

Censor board chief Pahlaj Nihalani has courted controversy with his list of cuss words which he wants filmmakers to avoid in their movies.
The Central Board of Film Certification has declared certain words off-limits for filmmakers, leading to massive media attention and twitter war, which included Board member Ashoke Pandit.
Ashoke tweeted, “The list of words 'not to be used in films' issued by the Chairperson is against the freedom & creative liberty of a filmmaker. #CBFC”
Mr Pandit, who is a director and producer, said he was not consulted by Board chief Pahlaj Nihalani on the list of prescribed words and that he did not endorse it.
Earlier Mahesh Bhatt went full ballistic on twitter and media against the same. Later Anurag Kashyap made headlines when he said, "I am against censorship of any kind. "
