Tannishtha Chatterjee on the Cannes-troversy

Actress Tannishtha Chatterjee is largely in agreement with Sheetal Talwar who has gone on record to say Bollywood representation in Cannes is farcical.

Says the actress, “I think what Sheetal says is to some extent true. However, it is not entirely true. This year Miss Lovely was in the prestigious Un Certain Regard section at Cannes. And even The Gangs Of Wasseypur is in the Directors’ Fortnight. Having said that I’d say we haven’t had another Satyajit Ray making a global impact for so many years. We make 800 films a year but we’re nowhere globally. Iran produces 25 films per year and their films get noticed everywhere.”

Tannishtha feels Indian films don’t get noticed. “That’s because we promote the wrong films, filmmakers and actors in India. Personally, if I was not recognized in Shadows Of Time and Brick Lane in the West, no one would notice me at home.”
