The accidental prime minister is the film based on Manmohan Singh’s 10 years tenure as Indian prime minister. The film is based on the book”The accidental prime minister” on Manmohan Singh written by Manmohan Singh’s media advisor.

The book was launched back in 2014 in the market, till now there were no controversies regarding the book and the matter inside. But the film which is based on the same book gets controversial as the trailer releases. Congress alleging it was the BJP’s propaganda against their party.


Congress is trying its best to prevent the film from being released. Congress is alleging that the film is part of the BJP’s propaganda to dilute the image of Gandhi family in India.


The trailer starts with the dialogue- “There were two families in the Mahabharat but there is only one family in India.”. The dialogue is regarding Gandhi family.


What makes Congress feel more un-secure is that the leading role in the film that is the role of Manmohan Singh has been played by Anupam Kher who seemed to be a great fan of BJP and supporter of Modi.


When the media asked Anupam Kher- why the film is releasing near to the elections, this could be bad for Congress as the film reveal secret facts about the Gandhi family. Anupam replied to this by saying- as films about freedom fighters and the country is released on 15 August, in the same films on elections should get released near to elections.
The Maharashtra Youth Congress has demanded a prior screening of the movie and declared that they wouldn’t let the movie release anywhere in the country if their demand is not met.


Anupam Kher’s say on this was- Nobody has the right to prevent the film from getting released once it gets certified by the censor board.
Congress is in the full mood to ban the film from releasing in Chattisgarh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. The three states were congress won the election this time.


The film’s trailer was released in Mumbai on Thursday.
Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, the film stars Kher as Manmohan Singh and Akshaye Khanna as Baru. It is slated for release on January 11.


Anupam Kher looks great in the trailer as Manmohan Singh. Anupam Kher tried to imitate Manmohan sing’s walking and talking styles in the film.


Kher said- Manmohan Singh is a man who does not express his feelings frequently but after doing the film I have become a fan of Manmohan Singh.


BJP is, of course, supporting the film and trying their best to make the film release as the film seemed to disclose harsh facts about how Gandhi family used Manmohan sign as a puppet and ruled the nation for 10 years.


Many people reacted to the film’s trailer on Twitter.
Dhruv Rathi’s tweet on this was:

The film is scheduled to release on January 11. People are eagerly waiting for the film to release and it’s going to be a blockbuster most probably if it gets released.
