Na­tional award­win­ning ac­tor Usha Jad­hav (left), best known for her stel­lar per­for­mance in the Amitabh Bachchan star­rer Bhooth­nath Re­turns (2014), will join the jury panel at the pres­ti­gious All Lights In­dia In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val.

The fes­ti­val is in Kochi from Novem­ber 15 to 19. The ac­tor is look­ing for­ward to shar­ing the stage with stal­warts like Ka­mal Haasan, Mo­han­lal and oth­ers. “When they ap­proached me, I was more than will­ing. All big names from the industry will be there. I re­alised that it was a great op­por­tu­nity for me to be a part of a film fes­ti­val jury as I've never done that.”

Indy­wood Panorama Com­pe­ti­tion is a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of main In­dian Lan­guage Films that com­petes for the best In­dian Film Award which is of­fi­cially an­nounced as Indy­wood Panorama Award. Plus, Usha's Indo-Aus­tralian project with ac­tor Ra­jeev Khandelwal will also be screened at the fes­ti­val. Ti­tled Salt Bridge, the film will be pre­miered on Novem­ber 17. “I am ex­cited about watch­ing my own film. It is not in the com­pe­ti­tion but I'm look­ing for­ward to peo­ple’s re­ac­tions. I also want to watch the re­gional films that are go­ing to be screened. A lot of Na­tional Awards are picked up by re­gional films and more of­ten than not, we don’t get to watch them. Plus it is good to judge films than to be judged all the time,” she says.
