Congress on ‘Indu Sarkar’: We want to be certain that our leaders are not shown in bad light

The trailer of filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming film ‘Indu Sarkar‘ has been released, and it is a well known fact that it is based on the Emergency period that was held in the year 1975. The period was declared by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Having a look at the trailer, it can be seen that the film shows this subject and its aftermath, and the impact on common people. Owing to the sensitivity of the same, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam has expressed his concern over the portrayal of late Indira Gandhi, her son late Sanjay Gandhi and the other senior leaders of Congress in this film.

Therefore, he has appealed to the Chairman of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Mr Pahlaj Nihalani that he wants to watch the film before it goes for censorship. (Also Check: PICS: Kirti Kulhari and Madhur Bhandarkar launch a new song of ‘Indu Sarkar’)

We have got our hands on the letter written by Sanjay Nirupam where he has addressed Pahlaj Nihalani, writing, “The trailer of the film says it is 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 Indian 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 is censored.” [sic]

Have a look at this picture of the letter:

Well, we will have to wait now to see that what further steps will be taken by Pahlaj Nihalani and CBFC, and whether this demand will be catered or not. It will also have to be seen that whether or not Mr Nihalani’s political affiliations to the current ruling party BJP will affect his decision as far as this film goes, given he was quite keen on giving the movie a green light, right after the trailer launch. Further, we have to see what director Madhur Bhandarkar has to say on this?

Let’s wait for more updates.

Talking about the film ‘Indu Sarkar’, it stars Kirti Kulhari, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Anupam Kher and Tota Roy Chowdhury in lead roles. The film is slated to release on July 28, 2017.
