Let’s hope the reconstituted CBFC board does not disappoint its members this time!
National Award winning actress Vidya Balan is also now the part of the reconstituted CBFC. Vidya is a self-made actress and is known for doing unconventional roles. She has been chosen to be on the board of CBFC members and it definitely looks like a wise decision, as she has often spoken in favour of creative liberty and filmmaking.
On being appointed as the CBFC member, the actress wrote on Twitter, “I am very happy to join the CBFC and I hope to fulfil my responsibilities as a member to the best of my abilities. I look forward to this new and exciting phase where our cinema will be allowed to reflect the sensibilities, realities, and complexities of the society we are living in today.”
Other members who have been appointed are T.S. Nagabharana, Ramesh Patange, Vani Tripathi Tikoo, Jeevitha Rajasekhar, Gautami Tadimalla, Narendra Kohli, Naresh Chandra Lal, Neil Herbert Nongkynrih, Vivek Agnihotri, Waman Kendre and Mihir Bhuta.
As per The Central Government’s order, the reconstituting of the existing Central Board of Film Certification will take place with immediate effect for a period of three years or until further orders, whichever is earlier.
