Anupam Kher elected as the new Censor Chairperson

The Information and Broadcasting Ministry announced the selection of veteran actor Anupam Kher as the new chairperson of the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) on Wednesday. The post of the chairman has been lying vacant for over a year after director Vijay Anand quit the post. Evergreen star Dev Anand, who was initially offered the post, refused it a fortnight ago. I&B Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that Kher was the perfect choice for the post for he epitomizes a perfect blend of offbeat and traditional films, apart from having good experience on stage, as well. Also he added that a task force would be set up to review the film certification body’s guidelines, which were last revised in 1991.
