LAHORE (Web Desk) – After Punjab caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi dissolved the Punjab Censor Board, actor and host Vasay Chaudhry’s tenure as vice chairman of the board also ended.

After his denotification, Vasay took to Twitter and wrote, “After the recent de-notification of the Punjab film censor board, my tenure as the Vice chairman ends with viewing 8 films, consuming 4 cups of coffee,1 popcorn,1 pack of chips, 3 water bottles, passing 7 films with cuts and banning 1(it was an E grade Hollywood film).”

He added that during his tenure, he used his personal vehicle and “didn’t take a single penny” for the films he reviewed. He went on to thank his fellow board members and everyone who helped him with the opportunity to serve in whatever way he could.

“I hope that my recommendations regarding re-evaluation of the film grading system, strong implementation of piracy laws in cinemas and increasing the inspection force of censor board will be reviewed by the incoming board. Best of luck to the new board,” he concluded.
