New Delhi, June 19: Congress MP Jyotiraditya Scindia on Monday expressed his anguish against the release of Indu Sarkar film by Madhur Bhandarkar and added it is a propaganda film for the BJP. The trailer of the film was released a few days ago and it is based on the notorious months under the Emergency rule of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and her son Sanjay Gandhi. Commenting on the trailer of the Bhandarkar movie, the grand old party thinks both Indira and Sanjay are being shown in negative shades.
A report published on Spotboy suggests that it’s not sure if the Sonia Gandhi-led party will oppose the release of the film. Post the strong opposition over the release of the movie by the Congress MP in an event, the filmmaker said he has no clue on how to react. On this film, the national award winner told the website that he always wished to make a period film as he is a big fan of the 70’s era.
” I and my writer were fetching a story and from nowhere the idea of emergency popped up, so I thought to bring it on floors with a touch of human drama,” stated the director of the movie. Elaborating more about the plot, he said, its based on real events and the idea of making a movie on emergency was to educate youngsters about those 21 months from 1975 to 1977.
Produced by the Bharat Shah banner, the film is about to hit the theatres on July 28. It stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, veteran actor Anupam Kher and Kriti Kulhari in lead roles.
