Filmmaker Nikkhil Advani has dropped plans of making a movie on Operation Blue Star since he feels the topic could be “too controversial”.

The 1984 military operation was ordered by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi to remove Sikh militants amassing weapons in the Harmandir Sahib Complex (Golden Temple) to get control over it.
