  • The Accidental Prime Minister’ Supreme Court refuses urgent hearing to plea against film’s release

Veteran actor Anupam Kher's highly anticipated venture "The Accidental Prime Minister" has hit the screens today. The film has been accused of misrepresenting Congress' internal politics ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and appears to portray Dr Manmohan Singh at the receiving end of a manipulative power struggle.

Earlier, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala called "The Accidental Prime Minister" a part of fake propaganda by the BJP ahead of the 2019 general elections, but former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh has chose to remain mum.

In this box office report we take a look at the collections of The Accidental Prime Minister in the overseas markets on Day 1 (Friday). The film is based on the book of the same name by Sanjaya Baru, who served as Dr Manmohan Singh's media advisor.




It was previously reported that the court has admitted the case and fixed 8 January to hear the case in Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate court. In fact, the trailer of the film too got vanished from YouTube.

It further claimed that it "seems that film makers, producers have made an attempt to make commercial gains and the act of "impersonation" have been committed deliberately to defame the office of Prime Minister just to hype the excitement amongst the prospective viewers". The best part is that it shows the human side of Manmohan Singh though not to a great deal. This is a movie which talks about modern Indian politics, made with awesome amount of brilliance by the directors and the producers and the cast is phenomenal.

The petitioner had alleged in the high court that provisions of the Cinematograph Act were being misused and the film producer has released the trailer affecting the image of the office of the prime minister and giving a bad name to it at the national and worldwide level.
