Sujoy Ghosh resigns after I&B ministry pulls out 2 films

According to Indian Express report, Kahaani filmmaker confirmed the news but without giving any divulging any details about his decision.

Disapointed with this decision, Sasidharan has already sent an email to the ministry asking for the reasons behind the "arbitrary removal of the film" and demanding the screening of the movie selected by the jury.

His resignation came following the elimination of the two films "Sexy Durga" and "Nude" from the final list of films.

On the other hand, Nude is a Marathi film, which has been written and directed by Ravi Jadhav.

Sanal's film, S Durga, was recently screened at the 19th Mumbai Film Festival after it changed its title from Sexy Durga to S Durga and was passed by the Censor Board of Film Certification with U/A certificate. It was a big honour. "I am really disappointed and shocked to hear that it has been dropped". "Nobody informed me about the decision", Jadhav told PTI.

Jadhav, whose previous credits include critically acclaimed films such as "Natrang", "Balak Palak" and "Balgandharva", said it is hard for him to accept that a selected film has been dropped without any explanation. My experience of IFFI in all these years has been very good. "My previous films were screened there as well". To the world at large, India is still synonymous with Bollywood, which tends to overshadow many films on serious topics that smaller artistes make. It is, Jadhav said, dedicated to nude models across the world who give their body for the education of art students.

Apart from Ghosh and Asrani, the jury for feature films in the Panorama also includes director Rahul Rawail, actor-director Gopi Desai, filmmaker Nishikant Kamat, director-writer Nikkhil Advani and director-writer Ruchi Narain.

This is the attitude which has prevented India making a bigger splash in global film festivals.

The same misplaced sense of morality saw the former FTII chief Pahlaj Nihalani wield his scissors far too generously on films which would have been considered inoffensive. It was a bad decision to select these third rate films in Panorama. "They both present a powerful and empathetic portrait of women of today's India". Nude was earlier scheduled to open the festival but now it has been replaced by Hindi movie Pihu by Vinod Kapri.
