Bombay High Court has rejected the petition filed by Priya Paul Singh who claims to be Sanjay Gandhi’s daughter. She had filed a written petition to Central Board of Film Certification and the makers of Indu Sarkar to put a stay on the release of Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming film. She filed the case on the basis of the trailer that maligning the image of the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. While the Madhur has earlier claimed that the movie is a work of fiction and has no semblances to the Gandhis.
The Central Board of Film Certification, Mr. Pahlaj Nihalani said, “It is not in my hands to ban a film just because people want us to ban it. We can’t ban any film actually, our work is to certify a film. The producers will go to the tribunal if they face any issues.”
