Madhur Bhandarkar who is famous for his tremendous direction work in

Bollywood, like as Rangeela, Page 3, Fashion, Heroine is again in trouble

because of his upcoming movie. Madhur Bhandarkar’s film “Indu Sarkar” is a

political drama. The film stars are Kriti Kulhari who is playing a lead role in this

movie and Neil Nitin Mukesh is playing Sanjay Gandhi’s character. Well!! but this

film is facing trouble nowadays in Indore city, from Congress committee, and

might not get ease release there. Senior ministers, Vivek Khandelwal and Girish

Joshi, from the committee have written a letter to the Cine Circuit Association and

Cine Gruh Sanchalan, requesting them to not release the film in Indore.


The Indore Congress Committee also have submitted a letter for the same.

Khandelwal and Joshi have stated in the letter that the film made by Madhur

Bhandarkar, starring Anupam Kher, has plots and characters inspired by Indira

Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi. They have also mentioned that, the film’s attempt

seems to be modify, the national work done by Congress in the time. Their major

worry is that even if the film is a fictional story, though the characters are inspired

by real people in power and their portrayal might be misleading. The letter also

suggests that the government is encouraging political propaganda through this


On the other side,director Madhur Bhandarkar said that, this political interruption

in his film a ‘knee-jerk reaction’. He told,“I don’t know what to say, really. The

members of the Congress have asked Maharashtra Chief Minister to interfere in

the matter too. Yesterday in Lucknow a mob burnt my effigy, there were some

news from Allahabad too. I think this is a kind of knee-jerk reaction, really. They

haven’t even watched the film.”

Bhandarkar has also further mentioned that “Indu Sarkar” is a human-story film

with the backdrop of National Emergency in India, and that the film’s plot is

fictional, and only a few nuances are non-fiction.
