Bombay High Court on Monday rejected the petition filed by Priya Singh Paul, the woman who is claiming to be the biological daughter of late Congress leader Sanjay Gandhi, against Madhur Bhandarkar’s Indu Sarkar.
She had earlier filed a writ petition at the Bombay High Court against the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the makers of Indu Sarkar to put a stay on the release of Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming film. Paul filed the petition on the grounds of the film’s trailer maligning the image of Sanjay and former prime minister Indira Gandhi.
The petition has also sought the court to set aside the certificate granted to the movie by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) until the makers of the movie delete the factual parts.
Bhandarkar had recently said only 30 per cent of film ‘Indu Sarkar’, which is set against the backdrop of the Emergency, was factual and the remaining was fictional.[ecp code=”4″]
