Anupam Kher on ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’: BJP tweeting the trailer was a masterstroke
As soon as the trailer of ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ was released, the film landed in a massive controversy. In the movie, Anupam Kher is playing the role of Dr Manmohan Singh, former Prime Minister of India while Akshaye Khanna will be seen as the media advisor-cum-book writer Sanjaya Baru.
There are many who have called ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ a propaganda film considering it is releasing just months before elections. Even the trailer went missing from YouTube.
Speaking to Times Now, Anupam Kher said, “People have the right to say whatever they want to say. You see, that is the best part of social media that everybody has an opinion and everybody should have an opinion. My point is that let’s see the film and then discover.”
“At least, the people with me know where I stand. But, there are millions of others who don’t. Everybody who votes behind that hidden place has a political party in his or her mind. I don’t have a political party in my mind, of course, my wife is BJP, she’s fought in the election. And of course, I admire Mr Narendra Modi. And that’s why it becomes easy for people to sort of say that “Oh…(‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ is a propaganda film),” he added.
He further said, “I think it was a masterstroke by the political party. And nobody stops anybody from doing that. Ya, it’s all marketing. Actors do that today. We have paparazzi and we tell them.”

Earlier on Wednesday, a lawyer named Sudhir Kumar Ojha filed a petition against the associated members of the film in Muzaffarpur’s chief judicial magistrate court for mangling with the image of some top politicians. The case has been filed against Anupam Kher and 14 other members associated with the film ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’.
It is to be noted that the movie is slated to release on January 11, 2019.
