The government replaced Pahlaj Nihalani, who has hogged headlines for his controversial decisions, with Joshi in a surprise announcement today.

One hopes to make a positive difference with the guidance and support of respected minds, he said.

The 45-year-old award winning lyricist will serve as chairperson of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for a period of three years or until further orders, the information and broadcasting ministry said in a release.

Actor Vidya Balan, one of the newly appointed members of the board said, I hope to fulfil my responsibilities as a member to the best of my abilities.

I look forward to this new and exciting phase where our cinema will be allowed to reflect the sensibilities, realities and complexities of the society we are living in today, she added.
