Ritesh Batra in trouble with Film Federation of India

Ritesh Batra, the director of the recently release film The Lunchbox, seems to have found himself on the wrong foot. Apparently, the Film Federation of India, the body that decides which film will be the country's official entry for the Academy Awards in the United States, has demanded an "unconditional apology" from filmmaker.


This demand came in the form of a strongly worded letter the federation sent out to Batra after the latter made certain derogatory remarks about this year's Indian entry to the Oscars, Gyan Correa's Gujarati-language film The Good Road.
