On Saturday, the press conference of Bhandarkar's impending directorial was cancelled following couple Congress staff took to protest from the motion picture.Thereafter, Bhandarkar took to twitter to share the information, citing the staff of the motion picture was left stranded "like hostages in the resort home". "Can I have my freedom of expression?"

The filmmaker said due to the controversy, the real story of "Indu Sarkar" was getting lost. Earlier, the venue for his press conference was chosed as Pune but due to massive protest by the Congress supporters on Sunday again, the venue had to be changed to Nagpur. "Otherwise, I would have made a 100% documentary and not a film". On this Madhur said, " have not made the film to malign anyone. Bhandarkar said. "It was "baffling to see self-proclaimed custodians of freedom of expression creating huge ruckus", he had added". My film is an emotional journey. "I am concentrating on that matter and they are only bullying a filmmaker by asking him to improve one thing or the other", he included.

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo dies after cancer struggle
Family members and friends of late Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo on Saturday bid him farewell in China's Shenyang city. Chinese state media continued to reject foreign criticism of Beijing's treatment of Mr Liu.

"Indu Sarkar", which is set against the backdrop of Emergency imposed by Indira Gandhi in 1975, has courted trouble in the recent weeks with Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam demanding that it be separately screened for him. But, since 1pm, the local party workers had started a protest outside their hotel.

A senior police official said Congress workers were waiting to meet Bhandarkar at the venue where he was supposed to brief media about the upcoming film.

Patil expressed the Congress' apprehension that the movie might have distorted the historical facts which may hurt the sentiments of the Congressmen and the public at large and so the movie must be exhibited to the Congress first and then be released.
