Rahul Rawail Replaces  Sujoy Ghosh At IFFI

In a swift a move, filmmaker Rahul Rawail has replaced  Sujoy Ghosh as  the the chief of the jury for the Indian Panorama at  the International Film Festival Of  India(IFFI) which  kickstarted in Goa on Monday.

Confirming this development Rawail, “That’s right, I’ve taken  on this job at the  IFFI’s  request after someone  else(Sujoy Ghosh) chose to relinquish  the responsibility.In fact I am in  Goa now. I am the acting jury head.And I’m honoured to be doing the job. Because this is  a platform where the world looks at us and the best films must be selected.”

To rewind a  bit, Sujoy Ghosh has  resigned from the  job of heading the jury for the Indian panorama at IFFI after two films Sanal Sasidharan’s S Durgaand Ravi Jadhav’s Nude were ousted from the panorama.

Rawail had stoutly defended the  two films’ ouster when other jury members including Sujoy Ghosh, Apurva Asrani preferred to resign from  the IFFI
