Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar had already unveiled the trailer of his upcoming film on the emergency of 1975 – ‘Indu Sarkar‘. The film serves as a highly political piece of work set in a very important era of Indian politics. The film stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Supriya Vinod, Kirti Kulhari, and Anupam Kher in integral roles. Now, the makers have released the first song from his much-awaited film. The song, which is called ‘Chadhta Sooraj Dheere Dheere’, is a qawwali, which is being brought back to films after a long time.

The popular qawwali originally sung by Aziz Nazan has been re-created by his son Mujtaba Aziz for the film. The revamped version is composed by Anu Malik. The song showcases the scenario and situation during the 1975-1977 emergency period.

Indu Sarkar is reportedly based on the Emergency era, a 21-month long period, when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi unilaterally declared a state of Emergency across the country.

The film will see Supriya Vinod playing former Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi. The film stars Neil Nitin Mukesh in the role of Sanjay Gandhi. Kirti Kulhari, on the other hand, plays a poetess who stammers and later becomes a catalyst for a radical change. Anupam Kher’s role too looks powerful in the film and we are looking forward to seeing more of it.

The film is all set for a July 28 release.
