Smriti Irani to take delegation to Cannes 2018


Information and Broadcasting Minister (I&B) Smriti Irani is planning on taking Indian cinema as a whole to the Cannes Film Festival this year. She will be leading a delegation to the festival to showcase Indian films in different languages, and not only in the Hindi languange, as commonly showed.

As according to TOI, Irani wants to “ensure a wider global platform for Indian films”. The delegation will include the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) Chairman Prasoon Joshi, CBFC member Vani Tripathi Tikoo, filmmakers Shaji N Karun, Jahnu Barua and Bharat Bala, and actress Parvathy.

The India Pavilion at Cannes will reportedly be designed with bright Indian colors.
