Sui Dhaaga to be screened in 12 small towns of India
Kaala may have redefined the symbolism of colours black and white in cinema but its director Pa Ranjith says if that were true the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) would have selected the film for the ongoing gala’s Indian Panorama section.
Ranjith says it was difficult for him to understand that Tiger Zinda Hai was chosen but not Kaala.“Unfortunately, they have not selected the film at IFFI. I don’t understand why Tiger Zinda Hai was selected and Kaala was not. I don’t know what’s happening.
Without giving away much, Ranjith says Munda is one such leader that the country needs today. “He was the premier leader and it was the tribals that led the freedom movement from the front as they were the first ones to be affected with all the land grabbing that started with the British and it still continues.
“Adivasis are facing so much struggle with their lands being snatched away even today. I think India needs Birsa Munda now,” he concluded.
