Nihalani removed as censor board chief, Prasoon Joshi to take over
The government today replaced Pahlaj Nihalani with songwriter-poet Prasoon Joshi as the chairperson of the censor board.

Joshi was appointed with immediate effect for a period of three years or until further orders, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry said in a release.
