Post Rahul Gandhi's remarks on freedom of expression, Madhur Bhandarkar slams him for not backing Indu Sarkar

Numerous times, works of fictions including books and films have irked politicians. The ideal freedom of expressions and speech that liberates an artist to create what he wants, is probably utopian. The recent Padmaavat controversy was a proof. Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar's Indu Sarkar which dealt with the emergency period initiated by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, too met with an absolutely negative response from Congress workers, leading to more violent protests at places. Bhandarkar now claims he sought help from Rahul Gandhi but he didn't receive any. This came after Rahul batted in favour of freedom of expression and speech.
