In a dramatic moment on the sidelines of IFFI, Tandon was questioned at a public interaction by the film's lead actor Kannan Nayar, as to when S Durga would be screened at the gala. The festival director simply said, "I will let you know whenever I hear of it." Nayar revealed that a copy of the film had arrived in Goa, and all those associated with the film were only waiting for the IFFI organisers to give them a date for screening.

"We are ready. We have given an application today seeking to know when we will be allowed to screen at IFFI along with a copy of the Kerala High Court order. The ball is in their court now," Nayar said. The actor also said that efforts earlier in the day to submit a copy of the application from Sanal Kumar Saidharan [the film's director] and a court order to the office of the festival director had failed because his office personnel would not allow him to submit the documents.
