Parrikar’s role as Indian defence minister, albeit for a period of just 3 years, was memorable as he played a key role in planning the 2016 surgical strike against terror launch pads in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).  In recent past, Goa was made permanent venue for the hosting IFFI by Indian Ministry for Information and Broadcasting as part Parrikar’s foresight vision for the state.

 

The film will be screened at 7:00 PM at the Miramar Beach on Sunday.

 

Parrikar while under medical treatments, had also caught up on the “Josh” fever as he drew loud cheers from the crowd when he delivered a dialogue from Uri at the inaugural event of Atal Setu in Panaji. Presenting his last budget at the state legislative assembly, Parrikar said “There is a josh, that is too high and I’m fully in hosh.”

 

On 22nd Nov, Vikas Bahl’s directed Hindi feature film “Super 30” and on 23rd Nov,  Abhishek Shah’s Guajarati movie “Hellaro” will be screened at Miramar.
