New Delhi, December 28
‘The Accidental Prime Minister’, starring Anupam Kher as Manmohan Singh, is the BJP’s propaganda against their party, Congress leaders said on Friday as the former prime minister evaded comment on the growing controversy over the film on him.
Congress leaders said propaganda against the party would not work and the truth would prevail.
The trailer of the film, based on the book of the same name by Sanjay Baru who served as Singh’s media advisor from 2004 to 2008, was released in Mumbai on Thursday.
The trailer shows Singh as a victim of the Congress’s internal politics ahead of the 2014 general election.
“Riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years. Was Dr Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM’s chair till the time the heir was ready? Watch the official trailer of ‘TheAccidentalPrimeMinister’, based on an insider’s account, releasing on 11 January,” the BJP said on Thursday night.
