Directed by Vijay Gutte, The Accidental Prime Minister provides an intimate look of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his functioning during his tenure.The film, which is slated to release on January 11, features Anupam Kher, Akshaye Khanna, German actress Suzanne Bernert, Aahana Kumra and Arjun Mathur in lead roles.
With the BJP facing flak online for sharing the trailer of The Accidental Prime Minister on Twitter, Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore Friday waded into the controversy asking whether the party doesn't have the freedom to extend wishes to a film.
We must say, it's Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna who emerge as show-stealers and keep you hooked.
While the trailer has left critics and fans excited for the film's release, on the other hand, netizens got their daily grub.
After much wait and anticipation, the makers of TheAccidental Prime Minister released the film's trailer on Thursday. But for the BJP, it's a "riveting tale". It is a political film based on a book, whatever the book has said we have tried to make that. "But I am an actor, they will decide".
"Everybody who has been seen the trailer is saying "Wow you look exactly like Manmohan Singh".
This film, according to me, should be India's entry to the Oscars and I should be nominated for my performance, Anupam Kher added. So those who are protesting should suggest my name for the Oscars, for being so close to Dr Manmohan Singh.
Former prime minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and Congress President Rahul Gandhi cut a cake on Congress Foundation Day in New Delhi on Friday. 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". "So he should scold the Maharashtra Youth Congress Members for protesting against it (Haal hi main Rahul Gandhi Ji ka tweet padha tha, jisme freedom of expression pe unhone bola tha, toh I think unko daatna chahiye un logon ko ki aap ghalat baat kar rahe ho)".
