The man responsible for greenlighting Michael Moore's controversial documentary FAHRENHEIT 9/11 in India has been sacked.

India Censor Board boss Anupam Kher upset many ultra-conservative Bollywood heavyweights when he gave the go-ahead for Moore's film to be shown in cinemas uncut.

After refusing to resign, Kher was relieved of his duties earlier this week (beg11OCT04) and replaced by actress Sharmila Tagore, according to trade paper DAILY VARIETY.
