Deepa Mehta has received flak for showing former prime minister Indira Gandhi in "poor light" as well as for using the country's map without Jammu and Kashmir in Midnight's Children. But she assures the movie has nothing "historically inaccurate", and that she will make the necessary changes to the map.

The movie, based on controversial author Salman Rushdie's Booker Prize-winning eponymous novel, was recently premiered at the International Film Festival of Kerala (IIFK).

After the screening, the state's Cinema Minister K.B. Ganesh Kumar's estranged father and former Kerala minister R. Balakrishna Pillai had said the movie shouldn't have been shown in a Congress-ruled state as it shows Indira Gandhi "in poor light".

But Mehta says there's nothing controversial about it.

"There is nothing in the film that is not historically accurate. Otherwise, believe me, the censor board would have not been so generous," said the acclaimed filmmaker, whose movie has been passed with an A-certificate and without any cut.

The movie revolves around the national emergency imposed by Indira Gandhi from June 1975 to March 1977.

Mehta clarified: "The film is not just about Mrs. Gandhi. That is just an aspect of what happened. The emergency is a reality, everyone knows about it. And I don't think she has been portrayed in any other way than accurate."

K.B. Ganesh Kumar also stated that he "felt sad when at the end of the film the Indian map was shown".

"It was without Kashmir," he had said.

But Mehta has assured immediate remedy.

"The map of India is a miss. I did not know that, and I wish I had... that when you show a map of India, you have to show Jammu and Kashmir. I had absolutely no idea, so I am going to do that immediately and I have absolutely no pain at all that it has to be done. So it is hardly controversial," she said.

Midnight's Children will be released in India by PVR Pictures in February 2013.
