Mumbai: Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairman Pahlaj Nihalani has reportedly sent the Producers' Association and Regional Officers a list of words that cannot be used in films.
Among the words present are predictable English cuss words and their Hindi counterparts. The list goes on to ban words that showcase “violence against womans” and “double meaning kind of words.” The list has garnered a lot of positive and negative criticism.
Congratulations. Between the censor board's list of words and ValentineMom's day we are officially the most ridiculous nation in the world— Gayatri Jayaraman (@SellingViolets) February 13, 2015

If so many things won't be allowed, what is the point of 'A' certification anymore? All the films should get 'U' unanimously. #CensorBoard— Aniruddha Chatterjee (@DaMoViEmAnIaC) February 13, 2015
So, going by the list of words banned by the Censor Board, none of Pahlaj Nilhalani's films would have passed without censoring the songs.— Uday Bhaskar Sharma (@uddubhaskar) February 13, 2015
