The Accidental Prime Minister trailer has been out!
Actor Anupam Kher, who plays the role of Manmohan Singh in the film "Accidental Prime Minister", on Friday asked why the Congress is protesting against the movie now when the book, on which it is based, has been in the makrket since 2014.
However defending the tweet, Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore questioned the Congress's stance on freedom.
"About one-and-a-half years back, my friend Ashok Pandit told me that there is a film being made on Dr Manmohan Singh, and of course everybody heard about the book and the controversy behind the book".
The BJP, on Thursday evening, tweeted the trailer from its official handle yesterday, a move that did not go down well with the Congress. Was Dr Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM's chair till the time heir was ready?

The president was seen shaking hands with camouflage-clad personnel, signing autographs and posing for photos at the base. Certainly, the Iraq that Trump is visiting is in a very different neighborhood than the one that Obama visited in 2009.
The BJP wrote on Twitter, "Riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years". The film is based on the 2014 book written by former prime minister Manmohan Singh's media adviser Sanjaya Baru.
Actor Anupam Kher plays Manmohan Singh in the film, while German actor Suzanne Bernert will be seen as Sonia Gandhi.
While reporter presented his mic to ask a question, as Dr. Singh came out of the vehicle, he immediately got ready to answer the questions but as soon as the reporter had put forward his comment, "What do you think about the film made about you, ?"
The film has sparked a row over alleged distortion of facts. "If the said movie is released without prior screening for our office bearers and without making necessary changes recommended by us, it will be understood that you are doing this deliberately and we have other options open to stop the screening of the same across India", the statement concluded.
The film, which is set to hit the screens on January 11, certainly looks promising. "Using words like "accidental" prime minister is very wrong and we will not allow such a film", he warned.
