But then, I am a sensitive person and I will want to think about others", he signs off. - Sanskriti Media'I'm happy to make way for someone else'Pahlaj Nihalani is in a surprisingly relaxed frame of mind a few hours after the news of his ouster went viral.Says the outgoing CBFC chairperson, perhaps the most controversial chairperson ever, "I had been preparing myself for my exit for months now.Actually, from the time I came in, there have been elements working against me, some of them from within the CBFC.

Along with Vidya Balan, Narendra Kohli, Vivek Agnihotri, Gautami Tadimalla, Waman Kendre, Vani Tripathi Tikoo, Neil Herbert Nongkynrih, Naresh Chandra Lal, Mihir Bhuta, T.S. Nagabharana, Ramesh Patange and Jeevitha Rajasekhar have joined the censor board members of the Hindi film industry CBFC.

The feeling of optimism was reflected by filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor who said that the industry had high expectations from him.

'Congratulations prasoonjoshi_ bahut ummeedein hain aapse (We have a lot of expectations from you),'the filmmaker said. I only hope he doesn't reverse the work that I started at the CBFC.

Nihalani drew flak from the filmworld for his decisions which included bringing out a list of swearwords that, he said, should not be included in films, even in films for adults.

After a dip of as much as 0.52 per cent earlier in the day, Wall Street's three major indexes bounced off intraday lows. In overseas trading, stock markets across the Asia-Pacific region saw continued weakness during trading on Friday.

Similarly, he was criticised for making unncessary cuts in films like "Udta Punjab", "Lipstick Under My Burkha" and "Babumoshai Bandookbaaz".

The Censor Board of India has been remade with writer Prasoon Joshi as the new chairman. I am not a big man. I will try to take the opinion of people, who have good thoughts, as it is a new thing for me. He is best known for writing songs such as "Maa" from "Taare Zameen Par", "Bolo na" from "Chittagong" and "Zinda" from "Bhaag Milkha Bhaag".

I have respect for the industry. It's been a highly satisfying tenure at the CBFC for me.

However, I feel I am a sensible man and I believe in taking responsibilities.

I will try to fulfill my responsibilities as per the best of my abilities with my experience and guidance.
