Why I killed Gandhi is set to release in the limelight Ott on Mahatma Gandhi’s death anniversary on January 30.
“WHY I KILLED GANDHI” THE MOVIE
According to the reports, Congress party’s state unit chief Nana Patole said on Sunday that they will request Maharashtra chief minister Uddav Thackeray to ban the upcoming movie “WHY I KILLED GANDHI”.
The film has sparked widespread debate since it is based on a declaration made to a special court by Mahatma Gandhi’s killer, Nathuram Godse, detailing his motive for assassinating Gandhi.
According to news agency ANI, Nana Patole stated that portraying Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin as a hero is wrong. Patole emphasized India’s global image by stating that the country is known for Gandhi and his nonviolence concept. He stated that the Congress party will oppose the film’s release and will ask the Maharashtra chief minister to seek a ban on it.
Meanwhile, the All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, requesting that the film be banned completely, claiming that it honors “Nathuram Godse, the traitor, and assassin of the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi.”
“Gandhiji is someone who is admired by the entire INDIA and the rest of the globe; Gandhiji’s ideology is a symbol of love and sacrifice for every Indian,” says the statement.
Nathuram Godse…deserves no respect from anyone in this country; the actor who played Nathuram Godse…is a sitting MP in the Lok Sabha and is bound by the Indian Constitution; if this film is released, the entire nation will be shocked and devastated by the depiction of the heinous crime that occurred on January 30, 1948,” it added.
On January 30, Gandhi’s death anniversary, which is marked as Martyrs Day, the film ‘Why I Killed Gandhi’ will be released on Limelight OTT.
Amol Kolhe, a famous Marathi actor who plays Godse in the film, is under criticism from a top party colleague as well as political opponents for his performance. Kolhe, on the other hand, stated that he is a “strong believer” in Gandhian ideas and that he took on the contentious part primarily to test himself as an artist. The actor-turned-politician stated that he does not agree with Godse’s beliefs.
