Day after the organisers decided to go ahead with the Kolkata International Film Festival by limiting the capacity of its screening venues at 50 per cent, the state government on Wednesday put the event on hold citing the massive surge in Covid-19 cases across the state.

Actors-turned-Trinamool MPs Dev Adhikari and Mimi Chakraborty were also detected with Covid-19. The former is currently in home isolation.
