Kirti Kulhari who put up a great show in Shoojit Sircar's Pink will be playing the role of a woman influenced by the leftist ideologies and will take up the responsibility to fight against the Emergency. In the trailer, we see her, locked up and brutally beaten by those in power but she refuses to bow. "Arjun ke iraade hil sakte hain, ghayal Draupadi ke nahi,” she says in the trailer.

Neil Nitin Mukesh plays the 'daring character' of Indira Gandhi's son Sanjay Gandhi in Indu Sarkar. He plays an antagonist who only wants things to be his way. "Emergency mei emotion ni mere rule chalte hain," says Neil in on of the scenes of the movie which clearly brings out the power and authority held by his character. He also talks about forces vasectomies in the trailer, which were part of Sanjay's agenda during Emergency.

Actor Supriya Vinod will be seen in the titular role, Indira Gandhi, in the film. While she is not seen often in the trailer, this dialogue shows her importance: "Ab iss desh mei Gandhi ke mayne badal chuke hai."

Anupam Kher will be playing the role of a leftist leader who doesn't fear to go against the system. His is the character which stands behind Kirti Kulhari as her support and motivates her to stand firm in her belief.

Tota Roy Chowdhury, who has previously starred in movies like Teen and Durga Rani Singh, is playing Kriti's love interest in the film and probably the only one on the system's side as he firmly refuses Kriti to talk against Emergency in his home.
