CALL FOR CUT
If cinema lovers get to watch a few good movies at the International Film Festival of India ( IFFI) in Goa this year, they can thank Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni. She intervened in a stand- off between Information and Broadcasting Secretary Uday Varma and IFFI Director Shankar Mohan, who quit in a huff over the constitution of the steering committee. When Soni realised that festival veteran Mohan had quit, she made Varma reverse the decision. Perhaps too late? The festival begins in November.
