A WOMAN PRIYA PAUL CLAIMING TO BE BIOLOGICAL DAUGHTER OF SANJAY GANDHI MOVED HIGH COURT SEEKING STAY ON ‘INDU SARKAR’ :

A woman claiming to be the biological daughter of Sanjay Gandhi, son of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, has approached the Bombay High Court seeking a stay on filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar‘s upcoming film ‘Indu Sarkar’. Priya Paul filed a petition in the high court yesterday seeking a direction to Bhandarkar to explain what was fiction and what was fact.  Bhandarkar had recently said only 30 per cent of film ‘Indu Sarkar’, which is set against the backdrop of the Emergency, was factual and the remaining was fictional. The film is slated to release on July 28. Paul’s petition has sought the court to stay the release of the film till Bhandarkar deletes the factual part of the movie.   The petition has also sought the court to set aside the certificate granted to the movie by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) until the makers of the movie delete the factual parts. The censor board has granted a U/A certificate to the film after ordering 12 cuts, which has been complied with.  Paul’s petition was mentioned yesterday before a division bench headed by Justice Anoop Mohta, which has posted it for hearing on July 24. Bhandarkar had recently said that he would put a disclaimer in ‘Indu Sarkar’, stating that the film is mostly fictional.  The Times  of  India : 22nd. July,17
