Nandan frowns on gay love story
No homosexuality please, this is Nandan.
Nilanjan Chatterjee, Nandanâ€™s CEO and director, has taken it upon himself to scan the â€œaestheticâ€ value of all films for Calcutta.
Stung by Chatterjeeâ€™s stand, the makers of Aarekti Premer Galpo have decided to withdraw their film from the Nandan release queue. â€œWe wonâ€™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,â€ said Ganguly.
Director Suman Mukhopadhyay, whose Herbert was shown the door in 2006 because of its alleged â€œwrong messageâ€ to the masses, said: â€œThe problem with Nandan is that it doesnâ€™t have any agenda. It has its own discrepancies and contradictions.â€
