Four months after Bollywood actor Anupam Kher (“Bride and Prejudice”) was fired as India’s chief censor, 18 members of the 21-person Central Board of Film Censors have followed him out the door.

No reason has been given by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry for the sackings, which come midway through the board’s three-year term.

Media reports said that aside from revamping the central board, the government was reconstituting nine regional advisory panels.
