The Filmmaker said Team 'Indu Sarkar' is frightened to say the least after receiving threats. He clarified, ''Indu Sarkar' isn't intended to malign anyone. I would have made a documentary instead of feature film if that is my intention. Books have been writtenâ€¦Documentaries were madeâ€¦Why can't I make a movie? Is this how you behave watching a 3-minutes trailer?'.
