Indu sarkaar or Indira sarkaar?

 Jun 20, 2017

Has Indira Gandhi, former prime minister of India and the leader of Indian National Congress, been negatively portrayed in Madhur Bhandarkar`s new film Indu sarkaar, scheduled for release in July? Indu sarkkaar is based on the happenings during the emergency, during which Indira Gandhi was the prime minister. Congress spokesman, Jyodiraditya Scinda, termed it as motivated and an example of BJP inspired annihilation of the image of Congress stalwarts. It gives a wrong picture of the events during the emergency, he contends.

The film stars Anupam Kher, Neil Nitin Mukesh and others and given Bandarkar’s standing in the industry the film is sure to attract popular attention.

Madhur Bhandarkar says : “My film is based on emergency on which so many documents like Shah

commission report are available. It is seventy per cent fiction and the rest part of history”.

As politicians are hell bent on defending their legacy in films and fiction, the war is not going to end .
