CBFC regional officer A. Dhanalaxmi has finally broken her silence. Ending years of reticence, she responded to the allegations on her leveled by ace director Ram Gopal Varma.

Varma had alleged her that she has harassed him, caused financial loss and over stepped her authority and used abusive language.

Refuting the above charges, Dhanalaxmi said that she acted against the film as it has names close to real life persons. “We directed the filmmaker to replace the names of characters in the film as they relate to real characters. We acted against the film after receiving a memorandum from a news channel who claimed that Varma has used the name of its channel’s CEO.”

She said that Varma could have knocked the door of revising committee rather than stepping the steps of court. Dhanalaxmi said that each movie would be screened by a committee comprising of five members of censor board including her. So, decision to suggest cuts in the film lies with five members of the jury but not with any individual.

The moot point is the manner in which she treats producer/directors. How she could not allow more than one film to be screened per day? And how she claims to watch each and every film that applies for censor approval. However, Dhanalaxmi has not answered to any of these questions and they remain unanswered.
