“Pahlaj Nihalani & His Scissors Will Be Missed,” Says Pammi Kaur
While people cheered at the news of Pahlaj Nihalani’s removal as CBFC chief, Parmindar Kaur cried herself hoarse. She sat down with a box of tissues and thought of how she was going to miss the sound of Pahlaj Ji’s scissors. The one he used to censor movies.
Only recently had she written to him when he had shot down the “lady-oriented” Lipstick Under My Burkha. Now, who is she going to write the letters to? Who will help her make sensible movie choices? In her last letter to the “king of censor board,” Pammi talks about the end of a historical era.
