Speaking to reporters at the airport, Bhandarkar said he was going to appeal against certain cuts suggested by the Censor board.

"Congress staff hv barged in the Resort lobby & created ruckus, me & staff are stranded like hostages in resort home".

"After a Pink', I wanted to do something with which people will get surprised again so, Indu Sarkar seemed as the flawless fit as it has Emergency as its backdrop. What is the problem if I make a film on Emergency?" The reality is based on the books and the documentaries made on them. I do not comprehend the demand that they (the Congress) want to observe the motion picture just before its launch. "I am concentrating on that matter and they are only bullying a filmmaker by asking him to improve one thing or the other", he included. Bhandarkar said. "It was "baffling to see self-proclaimed custodians of freedom of expression creating huge ruckus", he had added".

"My movie is based on the story of a husband and a wife, who have contradictory opinion about the Emergency". My film is an emotional journey. The filmmaker also faced the anger of Congressmen in Pune as the party thinks that his film may malign the image of Indira Gandhi and her son Sanjay Gandhi.

A senior police official said Congress workers were waiting to meet Bhandarkar at the venue where he was supposed to brief media about the upcoming film. 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 previous year. The party cadre are irked with the alleged derogatory depiction of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in Bhandarkar's next feature.

Patil further said the Chief Minister should assure this so that law and order situation post the release of the movie is maintained.
