Kamal Haasan to join Shyam Benegal on special censor committee

Earlier this month, we had reported that the I&B Ministry had appointed a special committee headed by the filmmaker Shyam Benegal, to suggest measures to help the Censor Board members understand the nuances of film certification. Now we hear that actor – filmmaker Kamal Haasan will also be joining the committee.

Apparently, this addition comes after the Ministry felt that more regions of the country should be given representation on the panel, suggesting that along with Hassan, directors Shaji Karun and Gautam Ghosh should be included on it. Once appointed the trio will join the other members of committee that includes filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, adman Piyush Pandey and film journalist Bhawana Somayaa.
