Video : My objections were overlooked while certifying PK – Satish Kalyankar, Censor Board member


Mumbai – “I had raised objections to many scenes in film ‘PK’; but my remark that ‘the film may be issued certification only after removing those scenes’ was totally ignored”, was the accusation made by Satish Kalyankar, a member of Film Censor Board. Shri. Kalyankar is the Vice President of BJP’s Art and Culture Department, Maharashtra State. The most important thing is that he had conveyed his objections to Leela Samson, the Chief Executive Officer of Film Censor Board on 27th November 2014 i.e. before the release of the film. (Congratulations to Shri. Kalyankar for promptly opposing the film ‘PK’ ! – Editor, Dainik Sanatan Prabhat) He had demanded that the film should be sent to Revising Committee; but that was also totally ignored, informed Shri. Kalyankar.
