He said that the meeting also discussed the necessity to carry out a thorough cleansing of the cockroach-ridden government-run circuit house. "We have to get rid of the cockroaches there," he said.

The circuit house and other government guest houses are used to host several of the delegates and key government officials who are a part of the organizational set up for the festival.

Wagh also said that superstar Rajinikanth had a medical treatment appointment which clashed with the IFFI festival inauguration which could make it difficult for him to attend the function. "But we are trying on level best to get him here," Wagh said.

The IFFI is being held in Goa annually from 2004.
