Mumbai/Patna : Filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh resigned as head of the jury of the Indian Panorama of the 48th International Film Festival of India (IIFI) after the final selection saw the exclusion of two films, 'Sexy Durga' and 'Nude'.

 Reacting to the decision taken by the Government of India to ban those movies, veteran filmmaker Shyam Benegal backed Ghosh and said that the government should not support those people, who do not want the film to be shown. Instead, they should support those who want to show the film.

Benegal said, "The government should not support those people who do not want the film to be shown. Instead, support those who want to show the film. Govt. decided that a couple of films chosen by jury shouldn't be there. If they override what jury does, their position becomes untenable."

Adding, "So jury or its chairman will have to resign. If a jury has been constituted and you disagree with their choice, then what is that jury supposed to be doing. What Sujoy Ghosh did is a correct thing."
