The upcoming biopic “The Accidental Prime Minister” based on former prime minister of India Manmohan Singh’s years in office has been caught in politics. The movie will be released on January 11th and in the election season, the Congress is not ready to compromise with its winning run and has issued warning over the movie getting released next year.
Maharashtra Youth Congress on Thursday raised objections to Anupam Kher starrer ‘The Accidental Prime Minister,’ and asserted that if the film is released without prior screening for their office bearers, they will resort to “other options” to stop the screening of the film.
The Youth Congress of Maharashtra has issued a statement, led by its president Satyajeet Tambe Patil, to the makers of the film and to Sanjaya Baru, the author of The Accidental Prime Minister to organize a special screening of the movie for them before its release.
Senior Congress leader and MP, P.L Punia has stated that “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.”
The BJP yesterday had tweeted from its official handle, “Riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years. Was Dr Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM’s chair till the time heir was ready? Watch the official trailer of The Accidental Prime Minister, based on an insider’s account, releasing on 11 Jan!”
