Priya Singh Paul, 48, told a press conference on Monday she had been adopted as a baby and only told after she grew up that her biological father was Indira’s eldest son Sanjay, who died in a plane crash in 1980.
She alleged that the upcoming movie Indu Sarkar portrays the late Congress leader and his mother and former prime minister Indira Gandhi in bad light.
The filmmakers have admitted that the film is 30 per cent facts and 70 per cent fiction.
“But these socalled facts lead to a fiction. This has been cleverly done to influence a reasonable viewer to make an obvious connect,” she said.
Paul said she was not hankering for media attention and decided to come out as a wrong impression was being created about her father.
One Goswami Sushil-ji Maharaj, a friend of Sanjay Gandhi, has filed an affidavit in the court, claiming that he was well aware that Sanjay had a girl child, born before his marriage.
Indu Sarkar is due to be released on July 28.
