  • The IFFI controversy continued to get bigger on Tuesday
  • Taking to Twitter, Taslima Nasreen wrote IFFI should be boycotted by all juries and filmmakers.
  • The I&B Ministry is yet to come out with an official statement with a reason for doing so.

The IFFI controversy continues to get bigger on Tuesday following the resignation of the head of the jury of IFFI's Indian Panorama section, Sujoy Ghosh. Taking a cue from the recent resignation Taslima Nasreen took to Twitter and  expressed her misgiving regarding the director's protest against International Film Festival of India (IFFI) and suggested rather sarcastically, that all jury members and film makers alike should boycott the annual festival. 

She wrote

Despite being selected by the jury constituted as per Indian Panorama regulations, Malayalam filmmaker Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s S Durga and Ravi Jadhav’s Marathi film Nude were rejected by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry for the festival. The I&B Ministry is yet to come out with an official statement vindicating the reasons for the proposed cut in objectionable movie titles featuring in the festival.
