Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming project “Indu Sarkar” will release on July 21.
“It’s an Emergency! Your date with an important chapter from post independence history of India, ‘Indu Sarkar’ releases on July 21 2017,” Bhandarkar tweeted on Tuesday.
The movie is reportedly based on the Emergency era, a 21-month period from 1975 to 1977, when Prime Minister Indira Gandhi declared a state of emergency across the country. It features Anupam Kher, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Kirti Kulhari and Bengali actor Tota Roy Chowdhury.
A recipient of the Padma Shri, Bhandarkar is known for his socially relevant films like “Traffic Signal”, “Chandni Bar”, “Fashion” and “Page 3”. He feels youth will be eager to watch “Indu Sarkar”.
