Panaji: Hours after imposing prohibitory orders ahead of Ayodhya Verdict in the State, Goa government on Friday clarified that the prohibition will not affect upcoming International Film Festival of India (IFFI).

State Administration on Thursday had imposed prohibitory orders in Goa due to pending verdict on Ayodhya before the Supreme Court.
