Congress: Bhandarkar's film "Indu Sarkar" promotes 'false depictions'

Congress: Bhandarkar's film

Madhur Bhandarkar's upcoming release Indu Sarkar seems to be getting into trouble. Actress Kirti Kulhari and actor Neil Nitin Mukesh are in the lead roles. The organisation and the individual who are behind the film are known to us.

The Congress on Monday condemned the alleged "false depiction" in Bhandarkar's film and said the film is "fully sponsored".

Mr Bhandarkar dismissed the Congress' charges and described their opposition to the film as a "joke", challenging the party to prove the allegations.

At the trailer launch of the film, the acclaimed filmmaker said he hopes that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) will be lenient to his picture. Anupam Kher's role too looks powerful in the film and we are looking forward to seeing more of it. "You are only presuming the film is about the people you mention because of the physical resemblance". "There are no exceptions", Nihalani was quoted as saying by The Indian Express.

While Congress members are criticising Indu Sarkar, the film has the support of CBFC chief. The film is set in the 1970s when the Emergency was announced in India and stars Neil Nitin Mukesh in a character which appears to be inspired by Sanjay Gandhi and we must say the resemblance is just incredible.

"If it's a sponsored thing, I would have waited for the 2019 elections or I would have released the film during the recent state elections". The backdrop of the film is an emergency ... that has happened ... that we all know. The film revolves around a woman's journey during the Emergency that lasted for 21 months from 1975 to 1977.

However, the director had claimed that 70 percent of this film is fictional and 30 percent is real, which has been taken by the documentations or books.

Most recently, the Soha Ali Khan-Vir Das starrer 31st October (about the anti-Sikh riots in Delhi after the assassination of Indira Gandhi) suffered a setback in the run-up to its release when a Congress aide filed a PIL against it for portraying an unspecified political figure "in a bad light".
