Indu Sarkar: SC dismisses plea of women claiming to be biological daughter of Sanjay Gandhi

Mumbai: The Supreme Court dismissed the plea seeking stay on the release of Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Indu Sarkar’, a film set in the backdrop of the Emergency in 1975. Priya Singh Paul, the woman who claims to be the biological daughter of late Congress leader Sanjay Gandhi had moved SC Wednesday, after the Bombay High Court rejected the petition filed by her on Monday this week.

The petitioner told SC that the movie, scheduled to be released on July 28, is allegedly full of 'concocted facts' and is 'totally derogatory'.

However, dismissing her plea, the SC Thursday said, “the film is an "artistic expression" within parameters of law and there is no justification to stall its release.”

The censor board has granted a U/A certificate to the film after ordering 12 cuts, which has been complied with. The film stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Kirti Kulhari, Supriya Vinod, Anupam Kher and Tota Roy Chowdhury.
