‘Indu Sarkar’ gets cleared by CBFC with few cuts, reveals Madhur Bhandarkar

After braving several controversies, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar is finally heaving a sigh of relief as his movie ‘Indu Sarkar’ has been cleared by the CBFC with 12 cuts and a U/A certificate. Sharing the good news on his Twitter page, he wrote, “Thank You CBFC Revising Committee.#InduSarkar has been cleared with few cuts.Happy & relieved..see you in cinemas this Friday, 28th July.”

There were reports of how the CBFC had asked the makers to cut down on crucial portions in the movie which Bhandarkar had refused and had appealed to the FCAT (Film Certification Appellate Tribunal). Congress workers had protested outside the CBFC office, against the movie and demanding for a ban. Speaking on the same, CBFC Chief, Pahlaj Nihalani had said, “But we explained patiently to them that the film is no longer with us and that it’s gone to the Tribunal. The Congress protesters took this information sensibly. They submitted a memorandum asking for the film’s ban and left. Not once was the protestors’ attitude aggressive or overbearing.” [sic] (Also Read: Revisit the retro days with the track ‘Dilli Ki Raat’ from ‘Indu Sarkar’)

The movie was also receiving flak from a certain Priya Singh Paul, who claimed to be the biological daughter of the late Congress leader Sanjay Gandhi. She had filed a petition stating that the movie tarnished the image of Sanjay Gandhi and former PM, Indira Gandhi. However, the Bombay High Court rejected the petition to stay the release of the movie. So, it’s indeed an amazing news for the team of ‘Indu Sarkar’. The movie starring Kirti Kulhari, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Anupam Kher, Tota Roy Chowdhury and others will be releasing on July 28, 2017.
