INDORE: Dubbing filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar's upcoming film Indu Sarkar as a political ploy of the BJP, local Congress leaders today said the party will not allow its screening in the cinema halls in the city.
"Under the garb of the freedom of expression, the movie touches the subject of Emergency. It purposefully features the lookalikes of (former Prime Minister) Indira Gandhi and her son late Sanjay Gandhi to sully our party's image," City Congress general secretaries Girish Joshi and Vivek Khandelwal said in a statement.
The movie, slated to be released on July 28, will not be allowed to be screened in the cinema halls at any cost, it said.
The leaders said letters have been written to film distributors, the Central Cine Circuit Association, Indore, and cinema halls operators against the screening of the film.
