Putting the sense back in censor

“I have not become the King’s First Minister in order to preside over the liquidation of the British Empire,” Winston Churchill famously said in 1942. In spite of his very liberal views, Prasoon Joshi has probably not been appointed the CBFC chief in order to preside over the liquidation of censorship in India just yet. While the industry’s desire that the CBFC step away from censorship and restrict itself to certification may not come true overnight, a rewind to Prasoon’s opinions and observations on the issue in past years would indicate that at the very least, the industry could expect a far more rational and thought out approach in decision making.
