Bollywood starship meets the global cinema

Galaxies of stars and directors such as Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar and Subhash Ghai descend on the red carpet of the 49th International Film Festival in India (IFFI), a tall Bollywood glamor event that will celebrate the cinema, both national and international. The opening ceremony will also include director Julien Landais, singer Arijit Singh, directors Ramesh Sippy, Madhur Bhandarkar and singapore American actor Chin Han. However, the presence of Ghaja, which was regular at the festival, may raise eyebrows this year because the director was caught in the Indian #MeToo storm in charges of sexual harassment by two women, a claim he categorically denied. The opening ceremony on Tuesday will be a 90-minute affair that will include a rich and varied kaleidoscope of Indian film heritage and industry scattered by the performance of the mainstream artist Soun Sood and Shilpa Rao. The gala ceremony will be played by Governor Goa, Mridula Sinha; State Secretary for Information and Broadcasting, Col Rajyavardhan Rathore; Minister PWD Sudin Madhav Dhavalikar; and the President, the Film Certification Tribunal, Prason Joshi. "It's a mix of old and new, old, new and digital cinema, everything in this IFFI is combined," said Rathore DD News. "We will also try to experience this in the social media" to be accessible to everyone, Rathore added. Developing digital aspects that will focus on the IFFI, the Minister emphasized the role of Indian artists VFX in Hollywood films. It is time to support these talented experts, he said. "The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting is striving to create the game and visual effects of an institution and even started working on it. This will set a high standard in India. We can open up many satellite schools that can follow the curriculum set by this institution," he said. Many "In-conversation" festivals will be a "film family affair" with Anil Kapoor and Rhea; Boney, Arjun and Janhvi Kapoor; David and Varun Dhawan and from the south Daggubatis – Rana, his uncle Venkatesh and father Suresh Babu sharing the stage.
