Veteran actor and director Manoj Kumar inaugurated the Indian Panorama Section on Thursday at the ongoing 44th International Film Festival of India in the presence of Minister of Information and Broadcasting Manish Tewari.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Kumar recalled days of films and film making.
