Panaji: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will inaugurate the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here on November 20. Over 200 films would be screened during the festival which would be held till November 28.

“Shah Rukh Khan will declare the festival open,” Entertainment Society of Goa’s Vice Chairman Rajendra Talak said on Thursday.

However, even before its inauguration, the festival has been embroiled in a controversy over the information and broadcasting ministry’s move to drop the films “S Durga” and “Nude” from IFFI’s Indian Panorama section, leading to jury chairman and two other members resigning in protest.

Actors Katrina Kaif, Shahid Kapoor and Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani will be present for the inaugural function to be held at Dr Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Stadium.
