Shahid director Hansal Mehta miffed with National Film Festival organisers

The CityLights director is venting all his anger towards the new government. We wonder why…

Hansal Mehta is really angry with the organisers of the National Film Festival as they didn’t stick to their word. Rajkummar Rao‘s National Film Award winning performance in Shahid was going to open the NFF this year, but the organisers made some last minute changes. He tweeted, “Was informed earlier that #Shahid would open the National Film Festival. The program was modified after the new government came into power.”

Shahid won Hansal and Rajkummar the National Film awards. But all of that still couldn’t stop Hansal from venting out his rage against the new government. Getting to open the NFF would have meant great viewership and acclaim for the film, but now all of that will be taken away by Astu. Hansal tweeted, “Now Astu opens the NFF. Hope the change was to accommodate a better film to open the festival and not because it was called #Shahid.”

We do not know what triggered this move by the government but whatever it is, it has managed to irk one of the best directors of the present times. Wethinks Hansal has the right to know why this change was done. We ask all you BollywoodLifers, is he voicing his anger for a just cause? What do you think peeps?
