Mumbai: Filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh says he has resigned as head of the jury of Indian Panorama section of IFFI following the controversy over the removal of two films from the final selection.

The controversy arose allegedly over the issue of pulling out two films from the final list that was submitted by the 13 member jury.

Several jury members have also expressed displeasure over the move to drop the films.

The jury had submitted its list on September 20-21, but the line-up was made public only recently and without the name of the two films, a member disclosed.
