New Delhi: The Pahlaj Nihalani-headed censor board that had stirred up a controversy by sending a circular to filmmakers to ban certain objectionable words from movies, has reportedly put a hold on its decision.
The new censor board in a meeting decided to put a hold on the list of 28-words and the directive that objects to glorifying violence against women in movies.
When questioned about it, Nihalani had said that it was issued only to bring clarity to filmmakers so that last minute cuts are avoided.
Recently the censor board was in news for dropping the word `Bombay` from Mihir Joshi's song. The board had also mentioned that Bombay be replaced with the word 'Mumbai'.
The circular issued by Nihalani to filmmakers on February 13, which went viral on social media platforms includes a list of 15 Hindi words and 13 English words that are to be avoided in movies.
