This film will white wash Dr. Manmohan Singh’s image
When the host asked the actor that did Manmohan Singh like the movie on which Anupam responded” Manmohan Singh will be proud of me when he will watch the movie and after that he will also have a cup of tea with me”
Sonia is already a vamp in The Accidental Prime Minister Book
When Anupam Kher was asked if Sonia Gandhi’s character has been personated a ‘control-freak’ and a ‘possessive mother’, he added:
“That’s how it comes across in the book, everything that you said. We are not writing our own script. We bought the rights of the book and the book projects her like that. Why was Dr Manmohan Singh called a remote-control Prime Minister?”
I’m a real actor and not caricature artist- Anupam
“There is a thin line between caricature and real. I became obsessed and put my life into it. I feel on top of the world. The biggest compliment an actor can get is when people say I am just like him. I have worked very hard for about seven-eight months to get that result,” he said. There was no regret in playing the role, continuing further that it was his “proudest role”.
He (Singh) doesn’t change his expressions and in the film I had to convey hurt, anger, dejection, loneliness on screen. I believe, the more difficult you make your job, the more rewarding it will be, he added.
We Cannot Stop living fearing that People will Raise Voice
At a time when anyone can give their opinion on everything and anything, Kher said social media gives any random person the power to tweet and everyone will follow it.
“We have seen people protesting against MS Dhoni or Sachin Tendulkar, etc. Some random person will get up and say something about the country or anyone. We have to live in these times. In this country, it is the easiest thing to collect some people and protest and call for a ban
India Will Take my Film seriously.
Certain sections of the Congress party are like ‘this is not be taken seriously’ and we have made fun of him (Singh) in the film. I feel, after this film, he (Singh) will get inside every household and the hearts of the people of India,” Kher said.
