Kamal in Censor Board?Published: January 14, 2016
The BJP-led Central government, which earlier announced Kamal Haasan as one of the ambassadors of Swachch Bharat, may soon add him as a member of the Censor Board revamp committee.
Reports from New Delhi indicate this, adding that since the government is keen at revamping the Board as per the changing times, it wants intellectuals like Kamal to be part of the exercise and give vital inputs.
The committee is led by acclaimed filmmaker Shyam Bengal and it may also have eminent people such as Shaji Karun, Gautam Ghosh, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Adman Piyush Pandey and Bhawana Somayaa as the other members.
The Information and Broadcasting Ministry, led by I&B Minister Arun Jaitley and Minister of State Rajyavardhan Rathore, is actively working on the suggestion to add more members, reports suggested.
In the meantime, Kamal is busy with commencing his next project, which will have his elder daughter Shruti Haasan in a key role.
