The Accidental Prime Minister review: Anupam Kher's The Accidental Prime Minister is an out-an-out propaganda film, created for the specific purpose of making the former prime minister look like a weak, spineless man, a puppet whose strings were controlled by The Family.
The Accidental Prime Minister is based on the book written by Sanjaya Baru, who served as the media advisor of Manmohan Singh from 2004 to 2008. Akshaye Khanna, who plays Sanjaya onscreen said he always wanted to be a part of this film.
After Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna being roped in to play the roles of Manmohan Singh and Sanjay Baru in Hansal Mehta's The Accidental Prime Minister, it has now been revealed that actor Aahana Kumra will play the role of Priyanka Gandhi in the film.
Akshaye Khanna and Richa Chadha are all set to lock horns in the courtroom with their next suspense drama titled Section 375. The film which will be helmed by Manish Gupta deals with the misuse of rape laws in the country.
Akshaye Khanna, who was last seen in the murder mystery Ittefaq, says that he does not have preferences as an actor and enjoys doing different genres. Akshaye returned to the silver screen with Dishoom.
Bollywood actor Akshaye Khanna was recently seen as a cop in the remake of the 1969 thriller Ittefaq. Also starring Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha, the film opened to positive reviews and is also performing well at the box office.
Ittefaq opened at a lukewarm Rs 4.05 crore and collected Rs 5.50 crore on Saturday. On Sunday, Ittefaq moved a little more ahead with earnings of Rs 6.50 crore but Monday and Tuesday saw drastic lows with just Rs 2.25 crore and Rs 2 crore, respectively.
Sidharth Malhotra-Sonakshi Sinha starrer Ittefaq hit the theatres almost single-handedly on November 3 but little did fans know that it will face tough competition from Marvel's superhero film, Thor: Ragnarok. Here are the complete box office figures of the two films.
The Accidental Prime Minister starring Anupam Kher is based on the book of the same name by Sanjaya Baru. The film chronicles the time when Manmohan Singh served as the Prime Minister. Here's what the audience had to say after watching it.
