Nirbhaya’s friend, who was with her on the fateful night, calls ‘India’s Daughter’ a fake film
New Delhi: While the British filmmaker Leslee Udwin claims that her documentary on the horrific Nirbhaya gangrape and murder case, ‘India’s Daughter’, accurately depicts what happened on the night of December 16, 2012, the sole witness to the barbaric assault on the 23-year-old woman called the film “fake”.
Backing the Central government’s decision to ban ‘India’s Daughter’ featuring the interview of one of the convicts, Mukesh Singh who blames girls for rape and not men, Nirbhaya’s friend Avanindra Pandey speaking exclusively to IBNLive accused Leslee Udwin of insensitively handling the issue.
“The documentary is unbalanced as the victim’s viewpoint is missing. The facts are hidden and the content is fake. Only Jyoti and I know what happened on that night and the documentary is far from truth,” says Avanindra Pandey who fought with the rapists and murderers to save her friend but was overpowered and beaten up brutally.
