Congress’ national spokesperson, Abhishek Manu Singhvi wondered if India is Nazi Germany.

Soon, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, too, chimed in.

No sooner had he done that, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar showed Rahul Gandhi a mirror about how Congress party workers had demonised and campaigned against his film Indu Sarkar, but Rahul Gandhi chose to remain silent.

The film Indu Sarkar was a fiction based on the 19 month long Emergency imposed by former Prime Minister and Rahul Gandhi’s grandmother Indira Gandhi in 1970s. Despite Bhandarkar’s assurances that the film was not a biopic on Gandhi’s life, Congress workers and leaders came down heavily on him.

One Congress worker had announced booty of Rs. 1 lakh to blacken Bhandarkar’s face.

A press conference for the movie was also disrupted.

Earlier, Bhandarkar had also exposed so called journalist Sagarika Ghose’s hypocrisy while she was trying to ‘expose’ Bhandarkar’s on the film Indu Sarkar. No wonder Bhandarkar claimed that had it not been for social media support, he would have gone into depression.
