    Kamal Haasan To Be Included As A Committee Member In The Censor Board Of India!


    In what looks like a rather smart move, the Censor Board of India is planning to invite acclaimed actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan to be a part of the panel, currently headed by Shyam Benegal.

    According to reports, the information and broadcasting (I&B) ministry, which set up the Benegal committee in an attempt to tranquilize the recent controversies surrounding the Censor Board, is planning to include famed film personalities from across India.

    Director-cinematographer Shaji N Karun from the Malayalam film industry and Goutam Ghosh, an acclaimed Bengali film-maker, may also be included as committee members.

    It is to be noted that Kamal Haasan, has in the past, accused CBFC of snatching his cinematic freedom. Now that the I&B ministry is planning to hand him over a part of the responsibility, it should be interesting to see if the Viswaroopam actor accepts the offer.

    With many film-makers raising their concern over freedom of expression in Indian cinema, the inclusion of geniuses like Kamal Haasan is expected to bring in a positive change at the way we look at films here in our country.

    Stay tuned for more updates.
