Exactly a month back when the news of Censor Board chief Dhanalakshmi’s transfer was heard, biggies like Kona Venkat had expressed a huge sigh of relief saying that Telugu film industry will now flourish to a next level. Because her forceful chopping of certain scenes, dialogues and glamorous shots has literally worried producers and directors. However the happiness seems to be short lived for everyone.
We hear that Dhanalakshmi’s tenure got extended to 6 more months and it may be pushed further to a year also. Due to non-availability of a person who could replace her, she got a chance to continue in the post, say sources. Another version is that she continued to influence the government through her high profile contacts and got the extension thing done. Whatever it is, filmmakers who want to sell glamour and violence will have tough times for more 6 months to 1 year.
