Financial Chronicle - - NONE OF MY BUSINESS -

FILM­MAKER Su­joy Ghosh re­signed as the head of the jury of IFFI’s In­dian Panorama sec­tion over the ex­clu­sion of two films from the fi­nal se­lec­tion that has kicked up a storm and which also led one of the film­mak­ers to move a court on Tues­day chal­leng­ing the Cen­tre’s de­ci­sion. Over­rul­ing the rec­om­men­da­tion of the 13mem­ber jury, the In­for­ma­tion and Broad­cast­ing min­istry pulled out Malay­alam movie S Durga and Marathi film Nude from the 48th edi­tion of the In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val of In­dia (IFFI) to be held in Goa from Novem­ber 20 to 28. “Yes,” con­firms Ghosh when con­tacted, “But I can’t say any­thing more than that right now,” he told PTI. S Durga, which was ear­lier ti­tled Sexy Durga, is a road movie that fol­lows the hor­ri­fy­ing ex­pe­ri­ence of two hitch­hik­ers, a man and a woman, at the hands of two men. It won the Hivos Tiger Award in the In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val Rot­ter­dam 2017. Nude de­picts the strug­gle of a woman se­cretly work­ing as a nude model in Mum­bai. — PTI/Mum­bai
