The development comes after Bhandarkar had to cancel the promotional events of 'Indu Sarkar' in Pune and Nagpur fearing wrath of Congressmen who had gathered to protest the film's release without a green signal from senior party leaders.
According to sources close to the director, Bhandarkar has been given a security cover, with two personnel by his side till the film is released.
A day earlier, event of the film at Pune too was cancelled after few Congress workers took to protest against the movie.
Bhandarkar had earlier tweeted saying that team was stranded "like hostages in the hotel room" in Pune when the press conference was opposed in that city.
Yesterday, the director took to Twitter and wrote to Rahul Gandhi, "Dear @OfficeOfRG after Pune I have 2 cancel today's PressCon at Nagpur. Do you approve this hooliganism? Can I have my Freedom of Expression?"
The film is scheduled to release on July 28.
