Tumhari Sulu actress Vidya Balan: Enjoying being a board member of CBFCIn August this year, the National Award-winning actress Vidya Balan was appointed as part of the reconstituted Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
The versatile and gorgeous actress has wowed us all with Tumhari Sulu trailer. Recently, the actress spoke about being board member of CBFC and said, she is enjoying her new role. In August this year, the National Award-winning actor was appointed as part of the reconstituted Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
"I am enjoying being a board member. A lot of people don't know what it means to be a board member... We don't watch all films, only when there is a problem we see the film. So I have seen very few films, which is a good news," Vidya told reporters here at the trailer launch of her upcoming film "Tumhari Sulu".
On the board, Vidya is joined by Gautami Tadimalla, Narendra Kohli, Naresh Chandra Lal, Neil Herbert Nongkynrih, Vivek Agnihotri, Waman Kendre, TS Nagabharana, Ramesh Patange, Vani Tripati Tikoo, Jeevitha Rajasekhar and Mihir Bhuta.
The new board members were announced on the same day when Pahlaj Nihalani was sacked as the CBFC chief and replaced by noted lyricist Prasoon Joshi.
Asked about her decision to be a part of the CBFC, Vidya said, "I thought if I don't say yes to this, I'd lose the right to criticise any decision ever taken by the CBFC. I thought I was ready to take the responsibility."
"I don't want to say anything about what our approach is going to be or what our decisions are going to be based on. But we had a meeting recently and I felt good that all like-minded people are on the board," she told reporters.
