New Delhi, Nov 02 (ANI): Savita Raj Hiremath, the producer of Dibakar Banerjee’s directorial debut “Khosla Ka Ghosla”, criticized the latter’s decision to return the the National Award for the film and said that he cannot return a joint award. Hiremath said that the award was given for the film and not for film direction and therefore Banerjee cannot alone decide on returning it. Hiremath said that the filmmaker’s decision was not politically motivated but sensed that he wanted to get some media attention for his latest production. Dibakar and nine other filmmakers returned their National Awards on October 28 to express solidarity with the agitating FTII students and protest against the growing instances of intolerance in the country. “Khosla Ka Ghosla” won the National Award for Best Feature Film (Hindi) in 2006.
