Aluminum Frying Pan Factory the dots?

"If you see today, Internet is filled with people defaming Nehru. But I would say, this is the power of creativity. Films like Jodha Akbar and Bajirao Mastani dealt with female characters who have a sketchy and faint presence in history. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s earlier film Bajirao Mastani received flak from the Peshwa community in Pune, Ashutosh Gowarikar-directed Jodha Akbar drew the ire of Rajputs, Ketan Mehta’s Mangal Pandey did not go down well with the BJP and Samajwadi Party, Santosh Sivan’s Asoka was much criticised by renowned historians. So when history plays a mysterious muse, how does one go about connecting Aluminum Frying Pan Factory the dots?Director Shyam Benegal recalls, "When I did Bharat Ek Khoj, there were characters that were well known, and others that were not.
