The film maker Madhur Bhandarkar is known to be the realistic film maker. This time, he is coming up with another project called Mai, Indu. The film has not yet been announced officially. However, as always this film is also going to be a women-centric one. The story will be based on the life of women during the Emergency period between June 25, 1975, and March 21, 1977.
It is being heard that for this project he talked to the BJP Leader LK Advani, political writers such as Coomi Kapoor, Tavleen Singh and Kuldeep Nayya. Apart from this he also had a talk to the Communist leaders of the country and the victims of the emergency.
His films like Fashion are not only based on the dark reality behind the colourful and glamorous world of the fashion industry but also the acting of the stars in the film was of the high standard. The film was star-studded, and it did well at the box office. However, his last work Calender Girls was a flop at the box office not only because of the poor acting standards of the actors but also because the story did not stand well.
The story was based on the life of the calendar models as they have to go through a lot of hurdles in their life to succeed and achieve their dream. But the other films like Page 3, starring Konkona Sen Sharma was totally an offbeat one and was well appreciated.
As the concept of the next project is much different and is controversial also, his fans are expecting a hit show. This is because the man is known more popularly as a controversial film maker. More the controversy more the popularity of his films.
