On Sunday, Kirti Kulhari interacted with media on sidelines of controversy relating to her upcoming film Indu Sarkar. While speaking to media, Kirti stated that Madhur Bhandarkar is not the director who would try to gain cheap publicity through his films.
‘Indu Sarkar’ is based on a 21-month long period, from 1975 to 1977, when the then prime minister Indira Gandhi unilaterally had a state of emergency declared across the country.
The trailer of the movie led the Congress party to ask the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) for a review before it comes under the scanner.
In this regard, Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam wrote to CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani, expressing the grand old party’s wish to watch the movie before it is ‘censored’.
Reacting to controversy, Kirti said, “People should at least realize that we haven’t made this film to create any kind of controversy. Today, anyone can stand and spark controversy on any matter. I feel, in our country, films should be separated with political and religious organizations. Madhur is not a new filmmaker who suddenly thought of making film and divert attention of people by creating controversy through his films to gain some cheap publicity. He has been making films from many years and on different subjects. We have made this film very responsibly and what we have showed presented in the film is through proper documented and available research material papers so I feel people should show some maturity while raising question on our film.”
She added, “This is my first experience but honestly I am not that scared about release of the film. Madhur is quite capable of handling these things so it still hasn’t reached to me. When we were making the film that time somewhere, we anticipated that questions will be raised about the film.”
“As an actor, I can say that my character is totally fictional and I am not in support or against of any political agenda to portray this role. As an actor, I chose this role and I am happy for that”
“Apart from that, I just hope that this doesn’t get serious and our films get released peacefully and after that people will get answers about their questions and misunderstandings”.
Reiterating Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam’s request, Maharashtra Leader of Opposition (LoP) Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil on Saturday wrote to state Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to intervene in the matter revolving around the controversial movie ‘Indu Sarkar’.
Indu Sarkar stars Neil Nitin Mukesh, Tota Roy Chowdhury, Anupam Kher and Kirti Kulhari in pivotal roles.
It is releasing on 28 July, 2017.
