On 1 October 1984, the then Prime Minister of Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her two Sikh bodyguards. In this way, on October 31, it is her 35th anniversary. Even today there are many discussions related to Indira Gandhi.
Indira Gandhi, not only in India but was one of the leading leaders of Asia. Her murder was also a sacrifice for the country. She was the first woman Prime Minister of the country. Indira Gandhi has been a leader whose name is still known for her active politics as well as her good personality. She was also well known in the Bollywood world and had to meet with many Bollywood stars.
Bollywood stars also longed to meet Indira. You can also see in the picture that Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar on the right side of Lata Mangeshkar and Indira ji on their left, Manoj Kumar, Vinod Khanna, Feroz Khan, Dharmendra sitting on the left as well as actresses Saira Banu and Sharmila Tagore is included.
Indira Gandhi's relationship with Amitabh Bachchan's family has also been very good, but at the time when Amitabh's name came up in the Bofors scam, there was a short distance between the two families. Their distances increased further after the death of Rajiv Gandhi. Amitabh's father and poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan was also very close to Indira and her father Jawaharlal Nehru.
Even when Gulzar-directed film 'Aandhi' was to be released during the Emergency time, Indira banned it because the film was based on a PM who took every decision very strictly. Indira feared that the film might show something that might not interest her. The film was to be released with Sanjeev Kumar and Suchitra Sen in the lead roles. Indira banned the film in the 1975 Emergency. Later this ban was lifted after the Janata Party came to power.
The film 'Kissa Kursi Ka' was also in a lot of controversies before its release. Sanjay Gandhi and Indira Gandhi were greatly mocked in the film.
