Barely a year after he was appointed chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification by the Vajpayee government, Anupam Kher was sacked on Thursday.
Kher has now threatened legal action against CPI-M General Secretary Harkishan Singh Surjeet who he believes is behind the Manmohan Singh government's decision to evict him from office.
But the new Censor chief has already been selected -- Sharmila Tagore.
What do you have to say about this controversy?
Do you think that Kher -- one of our finest actors -- deserved better, and should be retained as censor chief?
Should non political individuals be compelled to give up office just because the government has changed?
Or do think Kher deserved the boot because he should have resigned after the new government took charge?
This is your space! Tell us!
