Madhur Bhandarkar's Indu Sarkar lands into trouble, Congress condemns false depictions in the film

Indu Sarkar, directed by Madhur Bhandarkar is facing backlash from Congress party on false depictions in the film

Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming release Indu Sarkar seems to be getting into trouble. The Congress party has condemned the alleged false depictions in the film. The film is based on a 21-month long period of emergency from 1975 to 1977 by the former Prime Minister of India Indira Gandhi. The film features Neil Nitin Mukesh, Kirti Kulhari, Anupam Kher and Tota Roy Chowdhury among others in pivotal roles.

Calling the film fully sponsored, Congress spokesperson Jyotiraditya Scindia said “the organisation and the individual who is behind the film is known to us. We totally condemn the false depictions in the film.”

Earlier, the Central Board of Film Certification ( CBFC) Chief Pahlaj Nihalani told Bhandarkar that Indu Sarkar won’t have to get an NOC (No Objection Certificate) from anyone in the Congress or the Gandhi family.

Indu Sarkar does not name anyone. There is no mention of Mrs. Indira Gandhi or Sanjay Gandhi or anyone else in the trailer. You are only presuming the film is about the people you mention because of the physical resemblance. I didn’t hear anyone’s name mentioned in the trailer. If they are mentioned in the film, we’ll see. At the moment, I am glad someone has made a film on the Emergency. It is a ‘kaala dhabba’ (black spot) in our political history,” said Nihlani.

The film is slated to release on July 28.
