Anil Kapoor's film Gandhi My Father is all set to release in August but even before its release the film has pulled controversy towards itself. Gandhi My Father is about Gandhi's relationship with his eldest son Harilal and the promos of the film have drawn protests from Gandhians in Bihar.
According to the protestors, the film is based on the controversial aspects of the life of Mahatma Gandhi. Therefore, they have requested President APJ Abdul Kalam, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi to stop the release of the film.
Directed by debutant director Feroz Abbas Khan, Gandhi My Father stars Akshaye Khanna in the role of Harilal. Darshan Jariwala plays Gandhi while Shefali Chhaya plays the role of Kasturba Gandhi in the film.
