Congress Roasted Over Free Speech After Indu Sarkar Event In Pune Mobbed

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar who arrived in Pune to promote his controversial film Indu Sarkar was hounded by Congress workers throughout the day and forced to cancel his scheduled press conference and a visit to an educational institute.

However, Congress's Pawan Khera said the party has nothing to do with these protests and questioned if the workers were even from the Congress. "Since the last three hours, we have been locked in one room. My whole team is in the room", Bhandarkar told IANS over phone.

CBFC later suggested 12 cuts and two disclaimers in the film. Later, Bhandarkar tweeted " Congress workers hv barged in the Hotel lobby & created a ruckus, me & team are stranded like hostages in hotel room.

The film's spokesperson said, "We received a call from Sanjay Chordiya from Surya who had arranged the press conference". The film is set in the backdrop of the Emergency of 1975 and Congress workers were opposing its release.

Extremely unhappy with the Congress protests he said, "I am appalled by the treatment and this ruckus that the Congress workers created first at the venue and later in the hotel".

Meanwhile it is not just political party, Madhur has also been facing problems for getting a certificate for his film as the Board has asked him to remove some references to political leaders, parties, add disclaimers and so on.

Featuring Neil Nitin Mukesh, Kirti and Kulhari Tota Roy Chaudhary, it is scheduled to release on July 28.

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar has had several run-ins with the censor board previously over his films.
