Sujoy Ghosh, the chairperson of the International Film Festival Of India (IFFI) has put in his papers. Speaking from New York where Sujoy is currently ensconced for a private visit, the director spoke exclusively to this writer to say, I ve resigned from the chairmanship of the IFFI after this (the unceremonious abrupt exclusion of the two films Sanal Sasidharan s S Durga and Ravi Jadhav s Nude). At the moment I cannot say anything more.

When prodded to comment on the merits of the two films, Sujoy Ghosh said, They are both very accomplished films. Nude is such a poignant and heartbreaking film. I wept when I saw it.

Jury member Ruchi Narain adds, I am surprised and dismayed at the way the two films were dropped. Both the films were stunning cinematic experiences which the audiences at the Festival would have loved.
