Dhanush’s Velai Illa Pattathari is likely to get censored today. A large number of Tamil films are awaiting certification from the regional censor board, but it looks like the esteemed organization is running short of staff members. CV Kumar’s Sarabham and Karthi’s Madras, which will see the light of day this month, are yet to be censored. There are more than 10 films which are waiting to get censored, says a source.
“The government had recently decided that whoever has completed two years should not continue as a member. So, we do not have enough members. We presently have only seven members and it is difficult to censor films with few members,” says regional officer of the censor board to a daily.
