Directed by veteran filmmaker Jahnu Barua, BAANDHON is a human statement against terror on behalf of the common men of the entire world.

Puri called for government help and support to promote non-feature films. He said Indian cinema is not only about Bollywood as there are meaningful films made in different languages and regions but they don`t find distributors and so are killed.

He wanted the government to coordinate with Doordarshan to screen these films.

Secretary of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting Uday Kumar Varma assured to work out a mechanism to showcase these films on public broadcaster like Doordarshan.
