While the likes of Kangana Ranaut, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra have been rocking the red carpet, there has been hardly any talk about the films screened at the festival. Probably, it is so because there is no Indian film that is competing at the festival.

In a conversation with Rahul Rawail, Madhur Bhandarkar expressed his disappointment. “It is unfortunate that there is no Indian cinema (here). They are looking for strong content. He (a festival official I met) told me the audience is very different here in Cannes, so they have to choose the best one. We need to have strong content like the cinema of (Satyajit) Ray and Ritwik Ghatak, which basically has the Cannes value. That is very necessary for a filmmaker. More and more people should go for content and subjects that are more real and earthy because they want to see that cinema over here. I think we have lacked that from the last six, seven years,” he said at the Indian Pavillion of the gala.

Madhur Bhandarkar is a renowned filmmaker known for making hard-hitting movies like ‘Chandni Bar’, ‘Page 3’ and ‘Fashion’.
