Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - Yashika Mathur

Film­maker Mad­hur Bhan­darkar, who was tar­geted by po­lit­i­cal party work­ers in Pune on Satur­day, dur­ing the pro­mo­tions of his lat­est film, faced the same sit­u­a­tion in Nagpur on Sun­day morn­ing. An ag­i­tated Bhan­darkar told us on the phone, “We had to can­cel the [film] event be­cause there were protesters out­side my house [in Nagpur, where he has a place], scream­ing and rais­ing slo­gans. Ev­ery­one is safe, but now we have left for Mum­bai.” The film pro­mo­tions had also been can­celled in Pune. While the film has faced 16 cuts from the Cen­tral Board of Film Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, the di­rec­tor has at­tracted the wrath of party work­ers over some por­tions of the film that they find ob­jec­tion­able. They want him to cut a part about for­mer Prime Min­is­ter Indira Gandhi.
