निहलानी केंद्रीय फिल्म प्रमाणन बोर्ड (सीबीएफसी) के अध्यक्ष हैं, जो इन दिनों अनुराग कश्यप सह-निर्मित ‘उड़ता पंजाब’ में 89 कट लगाने का सुझाव देकर जबर्दस्त रूप से विवादों में हैं।एक संवाददाता द्वारा पूछे गए उस सवाल के जवाब में चंकी ने कहा, “फिल्म जगत में पहलाज जी मेरे गॉड फादर हैं और उन्होंने मुझे फिल्म जगत में जन्म दिया। आजकल बहुत से लोग मुझे उनका रिश्तेदार बता रहे हैं। मुझे उन पर बहुत गर्व है।”उन्होंने कहा, “जहां तक ‘उड़ता पंजाब’ का सवाल है, तो मैंने फिल्म देखी नहीं है, लेकिन उड़ते तो तोते हैं, पंजाब कहां से उड़ता है।”udtapunjab7
