IIFI row: Shyam Benegal reacts to Sujoy Ghosh's resignation as jury chief

While both the films speak of women empowerment Nude revolves around a model and her dilemma

After making the right noises at numerous global film festivals, S Durga a film which tells the story of a couple running away in the night and their encounters with sexist people will now not be screened at IFFI. This has now led to Sujoy Ghosh quitting from the post.

Another jury member anonymously said, "My guess is that the people who took this decision did not bother watching either of the two films, because had they done so, they would have realized that Nude has no intention to titillate, while S Durga is a thriller, and there's nothing sexy about it".

On November 9, the I&B Ministry announced the final list of the films for Indian Panorama section of IFFI which is scheduled from November 20 to 28 in Goa. The director confirmed the news to Indian express but didn't elaborate the reason behind this decision.

The filmmaker's decision comes after the Ministry of Information and Broadcast dropped Malayalam film S Durga (erstwhile Sexy Durga) and Nude from the final list of movies to be screened at the event without consulting the jury. Already screened at a number of global film festivals, S Durga exposes the reality of a misogynistic society and captures various encounters of a couple running away in the night. The makers of the movie were also forced to have 21 audio mutes by the board. The jury had nominated Nude as the opening film, where Sujoy had termed it as a strong feminist film.

Sanal Sasidharan's S Durga has been doing the rounds of various International Film Festival this year and earning critical acclaim. Ravi Jadhav, who has made Nude said that he would write to ministry asking about this step. Nude tells the story a nude model in an art school.

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 will be challenging this in court. I am really disappointed and shocked to hear that it has been dropped", he said. "Nobody informed me about the decision", Jadhav told PTI. The movie has already been screened at some worldwide film festivals and has also won a few awards while Nude is a Marathi film, which has been written and directed by Ravi Jadhav.
