"S. Durga is a film that had won recognitions in many worldwide festivals". The Kahaani director gave a confirmation to The Indian Express but refrained from commenting on the development. There's only a week left till the festival and it will be hard for us to go to the court now. The jury had earlier conveyed to the ministry that an explanation must be provided for every film removed. Meanwhile speaking to Mirror on condition of anonymity, a jury member said that till late on Tuesday, the ministry had not reacted to either Sujoy and Asrani's resignations.

Asked if he has resigned as jury head in the wake of the controversy, Ghosh said, "Yes, but I can't say anything more than that right now".

In the case of Ravi Jadhav's Nude that was chosen by the jury to be the opening film of the Indian Panorama section, it was denied due to incomplete post-production. Nude was earlier scheduled to open the festival but now it has been replaced by Hindi movie Pihu by Vinod Kapri. "Sumitra Bhave's film Kaasav, which won the Golden Lotus, was supposed to be screened at IFFI". "Durga is principal Hindu goddess and the filmmaker may seek normal certification of the film from CBFC", it was pointed out.It is important to note that Regional Officer, Thiruvanthapuram, who examined the uncensored version found it violating Guideline 6 of the CBFC, i.e. provocative and disrespectful of certain faith and religion.

Jadhav, whose film depicts the struggle of a woman secretly working as a nude model in Mumbai, is equally disappointed. The jury submitted its list to the ministry on September 20-21, but the line-up was made public only recently and without the name of the two films. I think there must be a protocol to inform the jury chairman of the decision.




"It's something we've never heard of", he said.

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. "An global film festival has nothing to do with Indian politics".

"Sexy Durga is now part of Indian Panorama section at IFFI and will now be exhibited at Goa and across India", Singh, a producer-director, tweeted on November 9, tagging Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani.
