Leela Samson quit because potentially controversial films like PK & MSG were passed

It now comes to light that that the surprise decision of Leela Samson to quit her post as the chairperson of the Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) was prompted by the release of several recent films that she was not in favour of certifying without the content’s revision. Subhash K Jha asks Ms Samson some direct questions


Is it true you are quitting the CBFC?

I’ve already quit


May I ask why?

I have sighted the reasons in my press release.


Would you say the clearing of certain potentially controversial films like PK and MSG influenced your decision to quit?

Several like it over the years. Yes.


How do you look back on your tenure?

Exciting and disappointing.


And what advice would you give to your successor?

I am not an expert to give advice. I am quite sure he or she will be wiser.
