Women and Child Welfare Minister Pankaja Munde has objected to the Marathi biopic Sangharshyatra, based on the life of her father late Gopinath Munde, claiming that the film’s producer did not take permission from their family before making it.

However, producer Sanjay Singh Suryawanshi said the film that was supposed to be released on December 12, 2015, Munde’s birth anniversary, will now be released on January 12, despite the objections raised by the Munde family.

Pankaja said, “The producers of the film did not seek permission from us before making a film on my father, who is a political legend. We need to know what they plan to show about my father. Since we did not know anything, neither I nor did anyone from my family participate in any promotional activities of the film,” she said.
