Shyam Benegal bewails DD mediocrity

Speaking at the inauguration of the Central India Films and Television Institute (CIFTI), noted film-maker Shyam Benegal said, Doordarshan was not living up to the expectations of the masses and described its productions as “mediocre and cheap”.

“DD is wasting a huge amount on production of these programmes. There is no sense of accountability with DD”, he alleged while speaking at the inauguration of the Central India Films and Television Institute (CIFTI) on Sunday.

Stressing on maintaining standards for films production, he said cinema was either good or bad and there was no parallel cinema as such.

The CIFTI would be conducting courses in acting, direction, production, television camera handling and editing besides various other aspects of audio-visual industry, its chief co-ordinator Anuradha Joshi said.

The first batch would commence from September 10.
