With just two days left for the release of The Accidental Prime Minister, a Bihar court on January 8, 2019, ordered police to file an FIR against actors Anupam Kher, Akshaye Khanna and 15 others for portraying politicians and public figures in 'bad light', reported PTI. Since the launch of the trailer, the film has run into controversies and mainly has been objected by the political circles. The movie is set to hit the theaters on January 11, 2019, and Anupam Kher has been quite vocal about the film saying that they won't back down.

The complaint was filed by advocate Sudhir Ojha, under IPC Sections 295, 153, 153A, 293, 504 and 120B, stating that he felt hurt upon watching the promos of the biopic "that was projecting a poor image of the country." The movie's producer, director and other people associated with the project were also named in the complaint.

On Monday, another PIL was filed by Delhi-based fashion designer, she said the film will harm the image of constitutional posts such as the Prime Minister's and will give it a bad name nationally and internationally.

In the trailer, we saw Anupam Kher epitomise the role of the former PM with great conviction. Soon after the trailer sparked off a debate, Anupam Kher clearly stated that, "I am not going to back off. This is my life’s best performance. #DrManmohanSingh will agree after seeing the film that it is a 100% accurate depiction." The film is based on the facts chronicled in a book by Sanjaya Baru, Manmohan Singh's media advisor between 2004 and 2008.
