High Court permits screening of ‘S Durga’ at IFFI

The Kerala High Court on Tuesday allowed the screening of Malayalam movie ‘S Durga’ at the ongoing 48th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) at Goa.

Earlier, Director Sanal Kumar Sasidharan had filed a petition before Kerala High Court challenging the exclusion of the film from IFFI.

The I&B ministry contended in court that the original title (‘Sexy Durga’) was offensive and the director had sent an uncensored version of the movie to the committee on the basis of which the selection was made.

But the court rejected the ministry claim, saying since the film had already received U/A certificate from the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) the ministry can’t raise objections at this stage.
