The great grandson of Mahatma Gandhi has defended a film about the turbulent relationship between modern India's founder and his son Harilal, even as prominent figures in India called for it to be banned. Tusher Gandhi told the London Daily Telegraph that he wept when he viewed the movie, Gandhi, My Father, which is being released in some countries today (Friday). "It was deeply moving and very finely balanced. It would be too easy to seek controversy and portray Gandhi as a 'bad' father. This film makes you feel the pain on both sides, for father and son." But Razi Ahmad, secretary of a major Gandhi research center in India and one of the protesters, said, "We are of the view that any attempt to tarnish the image of national heroes should not be permitted."
