The movie, The accidental prime minister is creating headline in the news world after the kick ass trailer of the movie. The trailer, which released on 27th December 2018 has attracted heavy criticism from the Congress party.
The trailer of the film, based on the book by Singh’s media advisor Sanjaya Baru, shows the former PM as the victim of the inside politics of the Congress ahead of 2014 general elections, which the UPA (United Progressive Alliance) lost.
After the statement and the controversy created by the congress leader, the veteran actor Anupam Kher invited the press for the press conference along with the producer of the movie Jayantilal Gada (Pen India Limited).
The actor Anupam Kher said, “This is an important story of the country’s political milieu. When I got a letter from a youth Congress leader, I initially ignored it but it turned into a controversy. We didn’t do any promotions before the censor certificate. Now, there can’t be a third power which will ask us to pre-screen the film for them.
The actor continued that, “It is a revolutionary film. For the first time, we are making a film on real life characters, with real names. It is the most difficult role in my career. I have worked hard for 6-7 months.”
He added “We have not made the film quietly. The film was announced two years back and every newspaper knew. My look came into newspapers and now the film is censored. We waited for the film to get censored, whether it was the trailer or the film, then only we announced the release. We have in fact only 15 days left for the film to come out. Energy, money and a lot of research have gone into this.”
The Maharashtra Youth Congress have demanded a prior screening of the movie and declared that they wouldn’t let the movie be screened anywhere in the country if their demand is not fulfilled.
Earlier in an interview with the media, when the media asked the actor about his role in the movie, on that Anupam Kher said, “I am approaching this part of Dr. Manmohan Singh completely from an actor’s point of view. There is a book and screenplay for reference. I have worked on it for six months. It is the most difficult film as he is the most visible person and so it is not easy to portray him. Also, the world knows him. His language, his movement… so it is more difficult. I need to internalise the character and be that person.”
