Here comes the poster for the film which is based on the accidental Prime Minister in Indian Politics. We see the veteran actor Anupam Kher is all set to portray the role of former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh in his upcoming film The Accidental Prime Minister. The movie is based on Sanjaya Baru’s book, The Accidental Prime Minister: The Making And Unmaking of Manmohan Singh.
The makers have shared the first poster of the movie on his social media handle, Anupam Kher wrote, “Looking forward to playing the role of Ex-PM #ManmohanSinghJi. #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister #Challenging #FamousBlueTurban.”
In the poster, the veteran actor is seen sporting a turban, beard and glasses and strikes an uncanny resemblance to that of the former Prime Minister. Helmed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte and produced by Sunil Bohra, the movie is expected to release next year.
In an earlier interview with a leading daily, Anupam Kher said, “Acting the role of anyone in contemporary history is extremely challenging, as comparisons are bound to be instant and inevitable. But as I have always revelled in challenges, right from my first film Saaransh, I look forward to the experience of portraying PM Manmohan Singh.”
Anupam Kher was last seen in Naam Shabana which also starred Akshay Kumar and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles. He will next be seen in Shree Narayan Singh’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha which also stars Akshay Kumar, Bhumi Pednekar and Sana Khan. The movie is scheduled to release in theaters on August 11, 2017.
