Madhur Bhandarkar to Rahul Gandhi: Can I have my freedom of expression?

Hours after Bhandarkar's jibe against Rahul Gandhi, the Congress leadership struck back, accusing him of resorting to cheap tactics for publicity. The trailer of the movie led the Congress party to ask the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for a review before it comes under the scanner. But by then he had already checked out of the hotel.

In this regard, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam wrote to CBFC main Pahlaj Nihalani, expressing the grand previous party's want to observe the motion picture just before it is "censored".

Taking to Twitter, the director tweeted to Rahul Gandhi, asking him and his party to stop interfering in the press conferences of his upcoming film. "Can I have my Freedom of Expression".

"I have been threatened with blackening of my face in Lucknow, a chappal garland in Allahabad and even issued a legal notice from a woman who claims to be Sanjay Gandhi's daughter", Bhandarkar said while speaking to HT.

"If the producers had nothing to hide about the movie, they should have first shown it to the Congress leaders and the members of the Gandhi family". "What is he hiding?"

"I think we desperately need some changes (in the censor board rules)". "Madhur Bhandarkar is trying all that he can for selling his film". Rutvij Joshi ji, Mumbai Incharge and IYC National Secretary, Mumbai Youth Congress will be demanding a ban on the movie Indu Sarkar by Madhur Bhandarkar for distorting historic facts and falsely maligning the ex Prime Minister of our country, Mrs Indira Gandhi ji, just to please the current government in order to repay the debt for getting the Padma Shri award a year ago. We had to cancel the event.

Furthermore, reiterating Nirupam's request, Maharashtra Leader of Opposition (LoP) Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil wrote to state Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to intervene in the matter revolving around the controversial movie ' Indu Sarkar' based on the Emergency imposed by former prime minister Indira Gandhi.
