Raghavendra says in Cinematic Illusions, "When a statesman is as well-regarded as a Lincoln or a Gandhi , it is impossible to be 'truthful' because a biopic, not being a documentary but an enactment, will be seen as being deliberately scurrilous unless its views agree with the dominant one. Where, in a biopic of a less venerated or more distant historical figure like a TE Lawrence or a Queen Elizabeth I , the director is allowed to become intimate with the subject, this is taboo when dealing with a Gandhi or a Lincoln.
We identify with people who might have been as we are but a Gandhi and a Lincoln, at least by consensus, are too gigantic.
