In what is being seen as yet another instance of governmental censorship of creative expression in film, the Information and Broadcasting Ministry (IFFI) has refused to exempt two films – Malayalam film Sexy Durga and Marathi film Nude from the 48th edition of the film festival. Although initially the jury had submitted the list to the ministry on September 20-21, but when the line was made public, these two films were suspiciously missing from the list, leaving a disappointed IFFI chief Sujoy Ghosh with no choice but to resign from the post.

S Durga director Sanal Kumar Sasidharan and Nude director Ravi Jadhav too are reported to be extremely shaken over the removal of their films from the Panorama section. Also read: Sujoy Ghosh resigns as jury chief of International Film Festival of India after Nude and S Durga were removed
