Bhandarkar said the press conference was called off due to protest by the Congress party members.

Extremely unhappy with the Congress protests he said, "I am appalled by the treatment and this ruckus that the Congress workers created first at the venue and later in the hotel". "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.

"But, you never questioned a journalist writing articles on 40 years of Emergency, in which he mentions names, you never question an author who has dedicated books to emergency, or the tremendous amount of documentaries made about the era", Bhandarkar had told. "I appeal to the film industry and people believing in the freedom of expression to support the film", he said. My film is an psychological journey. The film reportedly has characters based on the former Prime Minister and her son Sanjay Gandhi.
