Nandan frowns on gay love story
No homosexuality please, this is Nandan.
Nilanjan Chatterjee, Nandan’s CEO and director, has taken it upon himself to scan the “aesthetic” value of all films for Calcutta.
Stung by Chatterjee’s stand, the makers of Aarekti Premer Galpo have decided to withdraw their film from the Nandan release queue. “We won’t submit a preview copy. It is extremely insulting after the recognition given by the central government. It has also been passed by the censor board,” said Ganguly.
Director Suman Mukhopadhyay, whose Herbert was shown the door in 2006 because of its alleged “wrong message” to the masses, said: “The problem with Nandan is that it doesn’t have any agenda. It has its own discrepancies and contradictions.”
