Anupam Kher responds to protests against 'The Accidental Prime Minister' in Kolkata

13 January 2019

The Bollywood film is based on the memoir of the same name by Sanjaya Baru, the media adviser to former prime minister Manmohan Singh. "The film is an insult towards our senior leaders like Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Manmohan Singh". The Trinamool Congress chief also said that if people were making such a movie, films like "The Disastrous PM" should also be made, in an apparent reference to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Check out the latest box office updates here. It revolves around Singh's life, the economist and politician who served as the Prime Minister of India from 2004 to 2014 under the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.

However, Rohit Shetty's Simmba, which was released two weeks ago, is still dominating the box office and has earned over Rs 350 crore as its global box office and might affect the revenue of both The Accidental Prime Minister and Uri: The Surgical Strike. Now before the film had released, it created quite a buzz with it's lead actor, Anupam Kher making tall claims about the film being a honest project with no political agenda behind it. Not only TAPM is a propaganda film but a shoddy one with actors looking caricaturish, incoherent screenplay and poor execution of a story that had potential. "In the coming days, I am sure "Disaster Prime Minister" will also release". The 08:20 pm show was disrupted by protestors who tore the screen, angered over the content of the Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna starrer film.
