Prasar Bharti has included Bollywood actress Kajol in the list of names proposed to be on its board. According media reports, the Ministry of Information & Broadcast (MIB) had sent a list of seven names to the Home Ministry for approval for part-time board members for the public broadcaster and received the approval yesterday.

The other names are said to include singer Anup Jalota, Ashok Tandon who was former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s media advisor and senior journalist Minhaz Merchant. The seven names have been shortlisted to fill up four vacancies for the part time members of the Prasar Bharati board.
