Madhur Bhandarkar’s film ‘Indu Sarkar’ which recreates the events during the Emergency of 1977 in India has been facing many problems since the the trailer of the film has been released.
Recently, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam has sent a letter to Pahlaj Nihalani, chief of Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC), for a review of the film before it releases.
“The trailer of the film says it’s a film on Emergency and hence, we can see the likes of our beloved leaders like Indira Gandhi ji, Sanjay Gandhi ji and other senior leaders of the India National Congress. We, therefore, want to be certain that our leaders are not shown in bad light and hence, would like to see the film before it’s censored,” Nirupam mentioned in a letter addressed to Nihalani.
Indu Sarkar is reportedly based on the Emergency era, a 21-month long period from 1975 to 1977, when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi unilaterally declared a state of Emergency across the country.
The movie stars Anupam Kher, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Kirti Kulhari and Bengali actor Tota Roy Chowdhury.
Directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, the film is all set for a July 28 release.
