Indu Sarkar: Madhur Bhandarkar cancels film's promotional event, here's why

The notable filmmaker had to cancel a promotional event in Pune for his upcoming film Indu Sarkar. Tagging the official handle of the Office of Rahul Gandhi, Bhandarkar wrote: "Dear Office of Rahul Gandhi after Pune I have to cancel today's Press Conference at Nagpur. Can I have my Freedom of Expression".

The venue of the press conference was also preoccupied by 10-12 Congress workers but they remained harmless as Bhandarkar didn't show up.

"Congress workers have barged in the Hotel lobby and created ruckus, me and team are stranded like hostages in hotel room".

Talking on the exact, the 64-yr-previous new music composer instructed ANI that Bhandarkar is his favorite filmmaker and a person of the good directors in the film fraternity. "I don't know, but it has become like a process where every film needs to go through and I think you should watch the film with reference to the context". The reality is based on the books and the documentaries made on them. Can I have my Freedom of Expression?

"My motion picture is primarily based on the tale of a husband and a wife, who have contradictory opinion about the Crisis". "I can not understand why they are scared of one movie", he added. My film is an psychological journey. The movie which is based on the 21-month long period from 1975 to 1977, when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had unilaterally declared a state of emergency across the country. Earlier, Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam had penned a letter to Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chief Pahlaj Nihalani, asking for the movie to be screened for them before it is censored.

However, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, the director of the movie, has turned down Nirupam's request, saying he will not hold any separate screening for the Congress or any other political party. Due to Congress workers' protests, he was not able to promote the film, Bhandarkar said.
