When challenges arise, we get into crisis management mode, get on the phone 24/7 and do our best to get it resolved. The biggest worry is that when films with a political slant go into the interiors then the viewers can be easily manipulated. We've tried to tread with extreme caution with such films we managed to release the Tamil film Kutrapathrikai (Chargesheet) based on Rajiv Gandhi assassination which was stuck for 13 years. When films come to us, they are already made, so we can't suggest too many changes. We do the best we can so that maximum people can watch it.

But in the world of Internet, is censorship still relevant?

I believe there should be some kind of censorship in India. As a society, we look for consensus. Yes, India is growing and with the advent of television and foreign films, there is a change taking place but we still have to move with the pace of the society.
