Bhandarkar upset with other filmmakers
The filmmaker expressed disappointment at not getting any support from his film fraternity during the furore over his Indu Sarkar which released last week
Madhur Bhandarkar's Indu Sarkar, which released last week, is set during the emergency in India in the 70s. The film generated a lot of controversy since the time its trailer was released, with some political parties calling for a ban on it. However, the Supreme Court eventually refused to stay the release of the film.
Talking about the situation, Bhandarkar was recently quoted saying that he is upset with other filmmakers who didn't support his film. "I am really upset as I had thought to get a good response and support from the industry, but I did not receive it. They might have their own reasons for this. Perhaps, since the film was tagged as a political drama, they thought it best not to get involved in the controversy," he said.
The filmmaker has not been vocal about any other projects after Indu Sarkar.
