Ever since the trailer of Anupam Kher’s film The Accidental Prime Minister was dropped online, while fans have been all praises for Anupam Kher, thanks to his striking resemblance to the Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the film, a certain section of the society voiced concern with the film. Case in point- The film saw some controversy as few opposition party members saw it as a misinterpretation of the truth calling it a propaganda film because of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. However, The Accidental Prime Minister has seen the light of the day as the film has hit the theatres today i.e. January 11, 2019. The Accidental Prime Minister is directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte.

The Accidental Prime Minister starring Anupam Kher is based on the book of the same name by Sanjaya Baru. As for the story, the film is based on the time when Manmohan Singh served as the Prime Minister of India. While Anupam Kher essays the role of Manmohan Singh, who served two terms as Prime Minister between 2004 and 2014, Akshaye Khanna plays former media advisor to Manmohan Singh, Sanjay Baru, on whose memoir the film is based. Recently, when we spoke to the director of the film, Vijay Gutte, he was all praises for Anupam Kher and his performance in the film as he informed Pinkvilla, “In that age bracket, we have only a few actors and Anupam sir as an actor, he is incredible. Him saying a yes for this role was a blessing for me. One more thing, his smile matches to Manmohan Singh. He has done a lot of characters - be it a doctor or a father - you name it and Anupam sir has done it.”  

As the film released today, fans cannot contain their excitement and are appreciating and lauding the film on Twitter. From praising Anupam Kher’s role as Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to Akshaye Khanna’s epic portrayal of media advisor to Manmohan Singh, fans have given their thumbs up to the film.

I don't know, I didn't particularly like his performance. I think it was because he was over doing it.
