The Accidental Prime Minister trailer: Anupam Kher as Manmohan Singh impresses viewers

Veteran actor Anupam Kher who portrayed the role of Manmohan Singh in his upcoming film 'The Accidental Prime Minister responded to the row and said, "More they protest, more publicity they will give to the film".

Kher claimed that the former prime minister would be happy with the portrayal of his character in the film "The Accidental Prime Minister", which is based on a book with the same name authored by Singh's former advisor Sanjaya Baru.

Talking to PTI, Madhya Pradesh Congress Media Cell coordinator Narendra Saluja said, "This movie is part of the BJP's propaganda and tactics to divert attention from real issues".

Union I&B Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore defended his party's decision to lend its official support to the film.

The Indian National Congress's Maharashtra State Youth Wing has already demanded a special screening ahead of the release of the film. Tweeting the trailer of the Anupam Kher starrer, the BJP's official Twitter handle said on Thursday, "Riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years". Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM's chair till the time heir was ready?

The wait has finally come to an end as the trailer of the much-anticipated film The Accidental Prime Minister has been revealed. "We demand a full screening of the film before its official release in India and overseas". He asked why Congress, which has been a champion of freedom, is now questioning it. Sources said the party's top leadership has taken a view that the "The Accidental Prime Minister" is a BJP propaganda and should be ignored.

Manmohan Singh on Friday walked away without saying anything when he was asked by journalists to comment on the film.

Directed by Vijay Gutte, the political drama features German actor Suzanne Bernert as Sonia Gandhi, Arjun Mathur as Rahul Gandhi and Aahana Kumra as Priyanka Gandhi.

According to the actor, it was tough for him to essay the role of Manmohan Singh, adding that he became a fan of the former Prime Minister after doing the film.
