The Centre has appointed lyricist Prasoon Joshi as Chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification, CBFC, for a period of three years. Mr Joshi has replaced former Chairman Pahlaj Nihalani.

Government has also reconstituted the existing CBFC with immediate effect for a period of three years or until further orders.
