Yesterday, local Congress workers barged into a Pune hotel where the filmmaker and the crew were staying and held protests against the movie which is set in the backdrop of the Emergency and has characters inspired by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and her son Sanjay Gandhi.

The filmmaker was supposed to talk about his film, but after constant disruptions, the event had to be called off. Mr Bhandarkar said it was "baffling to see self-proclaimed custodians of freedom of expression creating huge ruckus".

He told NDTV, "This was absolutely shocking... What is the problem if I make a film on Emergency?"

However, Congress' Pawan Khera said the party has "nothing to do" with these protests and questioned if the workers were even from the Congress. "The Congress party absolutely distances itself from these kinds of protests. We criticise it, we condemn it," he told NDTV.

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has suggested 12 cuts and two disclaimers in the film. Mr Bhandarkar had been asked to remove words like RSS and Akali from Indu Sarkar.
