Anupam Kher to play The Accidental Prime Minister
Anupam Kher currently has two political based Bollywood films in his kitty. The actor will soon be seen in Madhur Bhandarkar’s upcoming film Indu Sarkar opposite Kriti Kulhari and Neil Nitin Mukesh. In the second film, the veteran actor is set to play Manmohan Singh in the film ‘The Accidental Prime Minister‘ written by the former prime minister’s media adviser Sanjay Baru.
Kher looks every bit of Manmohan Singh in the first look of a film adaptation of Sanjay Baru’s controversial book “The Accidental Prime Minister: The Making and Unmaking of Manmohan Singh”, in which the veteran actor essays the former Indian Prime Minister. The black and white poster shows the side profile of Anupam, dressed as Manmohan Singh — complete with a white beard and turban.
The focus of the poster is, however, more on the silhouette of a woman — presumably Congress President Sonia Gandhi — standing in the corridors of Parliament House. The deliberate placement of the silhouette near Aupam’s ear portrays the numerous layers that were perhaps behind the persona and the role of Singh, who was criticised for rarely being verbal and taking actions on his own.
So far only Anupam Kher has been introduced from the starcast of ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ and now everyone is keen to know, who are portraying the characters of Sonia Gandhi and Sanjaya Baru, who is writer of the book and was also the media advisor (2004-2008) of Manmohan Singh.
Story of ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ is written by National Awards winner Hansal Mehta and music is being scored by Salim-Sulaiman. Co-produced by Bohra Bros Production and Ashoke Pandit, the film is set to release in December 2018.
