You all might be aware of the fact that Prasoon Joshi has become the new chairperson of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). He took over the responsibilities from Monday but due to bad weather he was unable to turn up at the office.
As per the report by one of the CBFC source, “Pahlaj Nihalani before leaving the office on Friday had certified many films including Bareilly Ki Barfi which is an Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s film and Sidharth Malhotra-Jacqueline Fernandez film, A Gentleman, which were supposed to be released on the consecutives Fridays.”
These producers were more than happy and were just about to get their censor certificates on Monday but everything went wrong because of absence of the new chairperson Mr. Prasoon Joshi and the delivery of certificates was stopped for a silly reason.
Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, director of Bareilly Ki Barfi was tensed for this reason as his film was about to get released on 18th August. He contacted Pahlaj Ji to help him out and turning to be an example of the saying, “a friend in need is a friend indeed” he turned up so that the movie Bareilly Ki Barfi could get ready for the release with all its clearance.
So the good news is that the film is all set to hit the big screen on 18th of August, and all the fans can start making the plans to enjoy the movie with their near and dear ones.
As far as the responsibilities of the office are concerned, Prasoon is expected to join the office as the new CBFC chairperson from Friday. We wish the movie and the new chairperson all the best.
