It features Anupam Kher playing the role of former PM, Dr. Manmohan Singh.

Defending the trailer of his upcoming film, The Accidental Prime Minister - which purports to be a behind-the-scenes look at the UPA administration - actor Anupam Kher said that the film is based on "facts" which can't be changed.

The film also stars Akshay Khanna as Sanjay Baru, Arjun Mathur and Aahana Kumra as Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his sister Priyanka Gandhi, respectively.

The Information and Broadcasting Minister told ANI, "Can't we extend our wishes to a film?"

Kher's comment comes a day after Maharashtra Youth Congress raised objections to the film and asserted that if the film is released without prior screening for their office bearers, they will resort to "other options" to stop the screening of the film.

When asked whether he is anxious that this film can be opposed by Congress as makers have shown a controversial relationship between Dr. Singh and his Congress party, he said, "I feel you have to be little more careful because people take only two minutes to criticize you. The book has been out since 2014, no protests were held since then, so the film is based on that".




The trailer shows that the makers of The Accidental Prime Minister have given great attention in making each of the characters resemble the real-life personalities.

Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, the film is slated to be released on January 11.

While reporter presented his mic to ask a question, as Dr. Singh came out of the auto, 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 makers of The Accidental Prime Minister have released the trailer of the movie, and has received positive response from viewers on social media.

The film has sparked a row over alleged distortion of facts.

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah also tweeted on the film, saying, "Can't wait for when they make The Insensitive Prime Minister".
