Veteran actor Jackie Shroff today said the Indian film industry should be giving preference to the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) over other prestigious fests across the globe, to make it a better affair.
Speaking to reporters after inaugurating the 'Raj Kapoor' lounge for Directors at IFFI, Jackie Shroff said, “People in the film industry keep on talking about Cannes festival. I would advice them to come here. Lets make IFFI better than that."
Jackie Shroff also appealed to vacationers and Bollywood celebs who come down to Goa for holidaying to visit IFFI. He said, “People come here (Goa) for a holiday. They should also come here during IFFI."
The actor said he would be requesting people from Marathi, Tamil and Bengali film industry also to come to Goa for the ten-day festival, which ends on December 3.
