After cancelling the events, Bhandarkar tweeted to Rahul Gandhi's Office saying, "Dear @OfficeOfRG after Pune I have 2 cancel today's PressCon at Nagpur.Do you approve of this hooliganism? Can I have my freedom of expression?" Juts a day back, there were stories flooding the internet on how a few Congress workers protested against the film in Pune. After the Pune press conference was called off on Saturday, Bhandarkar had taken to Twitter and posted, "Congress workers hv barged in the Hotel lobby & created ruckus, me and team are stranded like hostages in hotel room".

Talking on the exact, the 64-yr-previous new music composer instructed ANI that Bhandarkar is his favorite filmmaker and a person of the good directors in the film fraternity. "Otherwise, I would have made a 100% documentary and not a film". "I appeal to the film industry and people believing in the freedom of expression to support the film", he said. My film is an emotional journey.

The film, set against the backdrop of the 1975-77 Emergency, has characters inspired by the late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and her late son Sanjay Gandhi. But the Congress party wants to convey one message to him. Before he could leave for the event, around 50 Congress workers led by city-president Vikas Thakre gathered in front of the hotel. 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 past year.

Patil expressed the Congress' apprehension that the motion picture may well have distorted the historical specifics which may well harm the sentiments of the Congressmen and the general public at huge and so the motion picture will have to be exhibited to the Congress initial and then be released.
