Ranvir Shorey targets Nadev Lapid
In this way, during the 53rd IFFI, the Israeli filmmaker’s statement against ‘The Kashmir Files’, one of the biggest superhit films of this year, is considered to be very objectionable. Meanwhile, now actor Ranvir Shorey has said a big thing keeping his opinion on Nadev Lapid’s statement. Actually Ranveer has made a tweet regarding this matter on his official Twitter handle.
In this tweet, Ranveer has written that- ‘The language used by the jury to describe a film in this way is very wrong. It smells of politics. Cinema has always been known for films made on issues of truth and change. Not for the purpose of suppressing or sniffing it. Shameful display of political utopianism at IFFI.
The singling out of a film and the language used to describe it is completely unbecoming of a film jury or critic. It reeks of politics. Cinema has always been the harbinger of truth & change, not an agent to stifle or snuff it. Shameful display of political opportunism at #IFFI.
