Congress-ruled Madhya Pradesh bans The Accidental Prime Minister movie

The Accidental Prime Minister Trailer: This Anupam Kher- Akshaye Khanna Starrer Looks Gripping!

Party spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala also said the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh has not banned the film.

The film explores the dynamics between Manmohan Singh and former Congress president Sonia Gandhi along with drabbling on the former Prime Minister's alleged conflicts with his party counterparts.

"This is a BJP game, they know 5 years are about to complete and they have nothing to show to the people so they are using these tactics to divert attention", tweeted Congress leader PL Punia.

The trailer of the movie shows Anupam Kher getting into the shoes of Singh, perfectly resembling the latter's appearance and body language.

Apart from Anupam Kher, German actor Suzanne Bernert plays Sonia Gandhi, Aahana Kumara portrays Priyanka Gandhi's role while Arjun Mathur plays Rahul Gandhi in The Accidental Prime Minister.

Earlier in the day, in a similar move, the Maharashtra unit of Youth Congress has made a decision to stop the film's release in India and demanded a special screening.

The movie The Acccidental Prime Minister revolves around Dr Manmohan Singh, the economist and politician who served as the Prime Minister of India from 2004 to 2014 under the United Progressive Alliance.

Many in the Congress have raised objections over the the film, while the BJP has praised it as a "riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years". He was quoted by news agency ANI, "Can't we extend our wishes for a film?" Sources said the party's top leadership has taken a view that the "The Accidental Prime Minister" is a BJP propaganda and should be ignored. The veteran actor said the protests by Congress workers will only give more publicity to the film.

Manmohan Singh on Friday walked away without saying anything when he was asked by journalists to comment on the film. He asked why Congress, which has been a champion of freedom, is now questioning it.

The film is directed by Vijay R. Gutte, son of Ratnakar Gutte, an MLA from the BJP-allied Rashtriya Samaj Paksha.
