The Accidental Prime Minister trailer talk

The Accidental Prime Minister trailer talk

The clarification came after a section of media reported that the film, based on the book of the same name by Mr. Singh's former media advisor Sanjaya Baru, has been banned in the State.

As the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party traded barbs over biopic The Accidental Prime Minister, Anupam Kher - who plays the role of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh - said "we can't change history", reports news agency ANI. This was in response to a party leader objecting to the language used to describe his father, former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, in the Netflix series "Sacred Games". Was Dr Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM's chair till the time heir was ready?

The trailer of the movie, released on Thursday, drew criticism from the opposition Congress, which called it a 'fake propaganda'.

Actor Anupam Kher claims that the audience would love his portrayal of Manmohan Singh and also believes that the film should be India's entry to the Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars.

Veteran actor Anupam Kher is seen portraying the 86-year-old who ruled the country for a decade until the Congress was voted out of power in 2014. "It is the most hard role I have ever done because everyone knows Manmohan Singh very well".

The movie that stars Anupam Kher, Akshay Khanna, Aahana Kumra, Suzanne Bernet and Arjun Mathur will be released on January 11th 2019 in the election season.

The upcoming film delves deep into the internal politics of the Congress party and how Manmohan Singh found himself in the middle of it.

Kher also referred to Congress president Rahul Gandhi's recent statement that freedom of expression is a fundamental right.

The trailer shows that the makers of The Accidental Prime Minister have given great attention in making each of the characters resemble the real-life personalities.

The veteran actor, however, defended the timing saying "if a film is about the government and the prime minister, it makes flawless sense to release it before elections".

The movie is directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte and the role of Sanjaya Baru is played by Akshaye Khanna.
