Indu Sarkar is set to release on 28th of July. It features Kriti Kulhari, Tota Roy Chowdhury, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Anupam Kher in pivotal roles.
Tthe film is set in the 1970s when the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had announced an Emergency in India. Some initial sneak peeks into the movie showcased how Neil and Kirti’s looks resemble that to the late Indira Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi.
There were also rumours that Madhur that Lata Mangeshkar might sing for his movie. The speculations arose when he had gone to see her. He says, “I have been a great fan of Latai since I was a child and it was my dream to get her to sing for my films. My dream came true when she sang for Page 3 and Jail. She is like a goddess to me. Whenever I am low, I call her. I must talk to her every 15 days. This time we talked about old songs. Her sisters Usha and Meenatai joined us. I will show her my film when it’s ready. While she has not sung in the film, a collection of Latadidi’s songs will be played in the background as the film is set in the 70s era.”
