Ghosh has resigned as the feature films' jury head after Ravi Jadhav's Marathi drama "Nude" and Sanal Kumar Sasidharan's "S Durga" were reportedly removed from the recommended list. "But as a jury member I won't be resigning", she stated, pointing out that they spent a month choosing films and while these two did not make it to the final list, there were others films too selected by them. S Durga director Sanal Kumar Sasidharan and Nude director Ravi Jadhav said that they are shocked and disappointed over the removal of their films from the Panorama section.
"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). However, ministry has not reacted to the allegations.
"Give me some reason at least". It's ironic, really, that an industry that has information in its very name should fail to inform everyone involved before taking such a decision.

"It's wonderful that our country has opened its doors, with the International Film Festival of India, providing a platform to showcase some of the finest films from across the globe".
Jadhav, whose previous credits include critically acclaimed films such as "Natrang", "Balak Palak" and "Balgandharva", said it is hard for him to accept that a selected film has been dropped without any explanation. The ministry's role in the conduct of the IFFI certainly does not include deciding on the films to be screened. The jury at IFFI was so qualified that I was sure that this would be the ideal platform to launch the film. It is, Jadhav said, dedicated to nude models across the world who give their body for the education of art students.
