Pahlaj Nihalani, the current censor board chief is a man not unknown to controversies; almost every other month when a big and much awaited film is release he is the news for justifying his cuts, censorship and certification. Udta Punjab, Lipstick Under my Burkha and many other movies have come under Pahlaj Nihalani’s radar and somewhat unnecessarily. On June 23, 2017 told a reporter of Mirror Now to get 1 lakh votes to get the word ‘intercourse’ cleared from the promos of Shah Rukh Khan–Anushka Sharma-starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal. The channel got the number and much more, they deployed a reporter to corner him in an elevator and clear the word ‘intercourse’ at once.

Realising that he might come under deep shit Pahlaj Nihalani issued a criteria for the voters, he said he would accept votes only from people who are married and above the age of 36. So, unmarried youngsters weren’t eligible for this voting. However, Mirror Now accepted the challenge head on and gathered the necessary number of votes. They started a Twitter poll and a week later the results were in and Pahlaj Nihalani lost the challenge. In short, Mirror Now made him eat his own words.

Without wasting such a golden opportunity hey sent a lady reported to follow Pahlaj Nihalani and ask him to pass the promo of the film without censoring the word intercourse. Watch the video below:
The channel shared the video on Twitter and captioned it with the words, “Mr.Nihalani, why are you silent now? First he challenges, then he shirks! Censor boss has nothing to say to @MirrorNow. #SanskariNihalani.” The video is hilarious and brings immense satisfaction.
