According to sources, "S Durga" has been rejected by the Kerala government organised "International Film Festival of Kerala" too, and the filmmaker now is organising a parallel screening of his film.

48th International Film Festival of India is already courting controversy even before it has begun.

Apurva Asrani, one of the jury members, had tweeted: "Sexy Durga & Nude are among the best of contemporary cinema". Final print is made only when the organisers/ministry sends a letter informing of the selection, asking them to keep it ready by a certain date.

Director Sanal Kumar Sasidharan expressed his anger and said that he is planning to approach court "They are supposed to publish the list two-three weeks before the festival begins, but they delayed it on goal".

"I want the ministry to go by the rule and not overlook the jury's decision". "Sumitra Bhave's film Kaasav, which won the Golden Lotus, was supposed to be screened at IFFI". "However, the important thing is that 19 other films have also been chosen whose filmmakers have worked extremely hard to tell some very relevant stories and we need to champion these films along with the films that have been so unfairly left out", he asserted. "I respect the stand that Sujoy has taken but, more importantly, I am requesting the persons concerned to watch the films in contention and take an informed decision, preferably in consultation with the jury members".

Tolkien's book trilogy, 'The Lord of the Rings , ' which will now serve as the basis for an Amazon multi-season TV adaptation. It will be produced by Amazon Studios in cooperation with the Tolkien Estate and Trust , HarperCollins and New Line Cinema .


The opening film for the festival now is the Hindi film "Pihu" by Vinod Kapry.

Sujoy Ghosh has stepped down from the panel of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) amid claims of the ministry dropping two films without consulting the jury.

"I am all for creativity but the moment films come into the public exhibition space, their form and reception content change", said Tikoo, who is also a member of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). "An opportunity to be heard had to be given to me", he said.

With IFFI set to open on November 20, such sudden changes to the schedule are bound to make waves, especially since Sujoy had recommended Nude as the opening film.

"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.
