Days before the much-awaited film, Indu Sarkar, hits the theatres, Mumbai Regional Congress Committee President, Sanjay Nirupam, has written to Pahlaj Nihalani, director of the Central Board of Film Certification, that he wants to watch the film before it is censored.
The film’s plot revolves around the Emergency of 1975, which is considered to be the darkest phase of the Indian political system. Earlier, some Congress leaders had also alleged that the movie portrays former Prime Minister, Smt Indira Gandhi and Congress leader, Sanjay Gandhi, in a negative light.
In the letter addressed to Nihalani, Nirupam has mentioned that he wants to make certain that the leaders are ‘not shown in bad light’ and thus, wants to watch the film prior to its release and before it gets censored.
The film stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Kirti Kulhari, Anupam Kher and Supriya Vinod in pivotal roles. Directed by Madhur Bhandarkar, it is slated for a release on July 28.
