The first poster for Madhur Bhandarkar's upcoming film has been released.
It depicts Kirti Kulhari, Anupam Kher and Tota Roy Chowdhury replacing the three lions in the Satyamev Jayate icon, as they tower above an image of the Parliament of India. In the foreground, we see an image of police clashing with rioters.
Neil Nitin Mukesh, who plays Sanjay Gandhi in the film, is not seen in this poster.
Bhandarkar had previously released a couple of looks from his film, including one of actress Kirti Kulhari in character:

Indu Sarkar is based on the Emergency declared by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The film will look at the events from 25 June 1975 until Emergency was withdrawn on 21 March 1977.
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Bhandarkar said his intention was to acquaint the younger generation of filmgoers with the reality of Emergency. "I travelled back 42 years and the shoot was wrapped up in 41 days. The film talks about how freedom of expression and civil liberties were suppressed during the Emergency," Bhandarkar added.
Indu Sarkar is expected to release on 28 July 2017.
