This 5-day Kumbh Mela of Literature will witness over 380 speakers and thousands of literary enthusiasts eager to be engrossed in sessions imparting knowledge, diverse perspectives and entertainment.
This time, the festival is tightly monitored because of the threats from the Rajput group Karni Sena over CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi attending the festival.
Sanjay K. Roy, Managing Director of the festival organizer Teamworks Arts said that CBFC chairperson Prasoon Joshi is yet to confirm his attendance.
Apart from the CBFC chief, the Greatest Literature Festival on Earth is peppered with literature, political and cultural giants like former Afghanistan president Hamid Karzai, writers Michael Ondaatje, Amy Tan, Philip Norman, Helen Fielding, Sujatha Gidla, Shashi Tharoor, Julia Donaldson, Chetan Bhagat, Ashwin Sanghi, Rupi Kaur and Gurmehar Kaur.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Anurag Kashyap, Mira Nair, Sharmila Tagore, Soha Ali Khan and Vishal Bhardwaj are the representatives from the film industry who would be making an appearance at Jaipur Film Festival.
