Indu Sarkar makers asked to get NOC from former PM Manmohan Singh but NOT from the Gandhi family

While the makers of a film on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
would be asked to get a no objection certificate (NOC) from the
man himself, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar can heave a sigh of
relief for Indu Sarkar – a film on Indira Gandhi-declared
Emergency. Indu Sarkar won’t have to get an NOC
from anyone in the Congress or the Gandhi family, says censor
board chairman Pahlaj Nihalani, who is thrilled to see the
Emergency being slammed in the film’s trailer. Oh, interesting.
While the movie centrally revolves around the Gandhi family
(since their family was in reign during
the Emergency), it’s weird that an NOC won’t be required
from them.

Nihalani said: “I saw Madhur’s trailer, and I want to
congratulate him for blowing the lid off one one of the most
shameful chapters of Indian politics. This was a time when the
nation was put in the most embarrassing spotlight in the global
arena. Many of our biggest leaders had to go to jail during the
Emergency. Indian people’s morale had hit rock-bottom.” But
what happened to the rule that says no film about real
incidents and situations can be passed without NOCs from the
concerned people?

Bhandarkar on making Indu Sarkar: It’s important to tell this
story specially to today’s generation as they are not aware
about the Emergency

Of course, he didn’t stop there and further added, “‘Indu
Sarkar’ does not name anyone. There is no mention of Mrs Indira
Gandhi or Sanjay Gandhi or anyone else in the trailer. You are
only presuming the film is about the people you mention because
of the physical resemblance. I didn’t hear anyone’s name
mentioned in the trailer. If they are mentioned in the film,
we’ll see. At the moment, I am glad someone has made a film on
the Emergency. It is a ‘kaala dhabba’ (black spot) in our
political history.”

Ever since the trailer released, it has been raved a lot by the
presiding government’s followers. The film stars Neil Nitin
Mukesh, Kirti Kulhari, Anupam Kher and more. Neil’s look
as Sanjay Gandhi, is especially being talked about. With the
uncanny resemblance he shares with the late politico, it’s
evident that the realistic filmmaker has gone to lengths
to ensure the authenticity of the events showcased in the
movie. Interesting, don’t you think? Well, we’d love to see
what Bhandarkar has to offer this time.
