Pahlaj Nihalani is the head of the Censor Board in India today. He has been censoring certain scenes in movies that not many people agree with – from words like ‘sex’ to ‘condom’ to even ‘bed’. At the moment, Nihalani has come under fire for giving over 82 cuts to Udta Punjab. This censorship has left more than half the people furious and Bollywood has come together for the first time for a move like this.

Not many people know that Nihalani was a film producer himself once. Yes, he produced movies in the era where rape scenes existed in almost every movie, stalking was the way to pursue a woman and dance moves were nothing less than sex positions. So clearly, his movies followed the same format too.

Here are 6 scenes he should have considered removing from his own movies, if he were to follow his own “sanskari” ideologies.

1) Archana Puransingh and Sunny Deol’s kiss in Aag Ka Gola

“So much vulgarity they show on TV. On many live shows you can see short skirts and lingerie. How can you tolerate all this?” – Pahlaj Nihalani

2) Literally all dance moves of Jaane De in Shola Aur Shabnam

“How is this projecting our culture? There are free channels for all this. But this is cinema.” – Pahlaj Nihalani

3) The stalker attitude and sexual positions in Aankhen

“You have to take care of the new generation, on whom the future of the country depends. So how can we allow ourselves to give them wrong education?” – Pahlaj Nihalani

4) Just this whole fucking song from Andaz

“Today there is a lot of focus on “double-meaning” dialogues, gaaliyan (abuses) and other offensive material are freely used.” – Pahlaj Nihalani

5) The sensuous rain sequence in Dil Tera Deewana’s Ban Ke Mohabbat Tum To Base

“I don’t mind being called conservative, if it is in national interest.” – Pahlaj Nihalani

6) The weird way of romancing each other in Talaash

“This means you want to do sex in your house with your door open. And show to people the way you’re doing sex.” – Pahlaj Nihalani

7) Anita Raj’s transparent sari in Ilzaam

“Yes, we have to move ahead with the “modern’ but in the name of modern we can’t barter our country. We can’t sell our culture.” – Phalaj Nihalani

Oh boy!
