A case has been filed against actor Anupam Kher and others associated with upcoming film ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ in a Bihar court on Wednesday for damaging the image of some top people.
Lawyer Sudhir Kumar Ojha filed the case in Muzaffarpur’s Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) court. The court has admitted the case and fixed January 8 to hear the case in Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate court.
