On September 8, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar was given the Best Director Award for his movie ‘Indu Sarkar’ at the coveted Bollywood Festival Norway in Oslo. The award was handed over to him by Norwegian Culture Minister Linda Catherine. The movie ‘Indu Sarkar’ which was screened at the festival met with loud praises from the audiences. The Indians residing in Oslo since many years now, stated that the movie portrayed the catastrophe of the Emergency era very well. Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh’s performance was praised by many people.

Said Madhur Bhandarkar, “I have been making films for the last 16 years. People say that my cinema is a mirror to the society. The power that I have received from the support of my audience is something that drives me. People have asked me to change the subject of my films or the title but I have stuck to my guns only because of the love of my audience and this award further strengthened my resolve in making the films that I make.” Well, this is the first time that the filmmaker has received an award for the movie.

Recently, the director held a special screening of ‘Indu Sarkar’ at Atharva Institute of Film and Television. He revealed about his future plans by saying, “I am travelling to various places like Norway, Russia and London to showcase this film (‘Indu Sarkar’). After that, I will take a break of one or two months as I have worked hard on ‘Indu Sarkar’ from the last two years. There are a few ideas and concepts on which I am working, so around November, I will figure a subject for my next film.” [sic] He further said, “I definitely want to make a love story, but again it will be very realistic. It will not be in the larger than life space. It will be a girl-next-door or boy-next-door kind of love story.” [sic]
