'The Accidental Prime Minister': Bihar Court Orders FIR Against Actors, Director

The Accidental Prime Minister screening stopped in Ludhiana

A day before Delhi High Court hears a plea seeking a stay on the trailer of the upcoming Bollywood movie "The Accidental Prime Minister", a local court in Bihar on Tuesday ordered lodging of an FIR against actors Anupam Kher, Akshaye Khanna and 15 others associated with the movie. The protests led to the cancellation of the screening in that hall.

The comments from Banerjee came in the backdrop of protests erupting outside movie theatres over the screening of Accidental Prime Minister.

According to reports, he also claimed that the film projected the country and a host of its political leaders, ranging from RJD supremo Lalu Prasad and BSP chief Mayawati to former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and his deputy Lal Krishna Advani, in a very poor light.

Meanwhile, "The Accidental Prime Minister" producer Sunil Bohra has said that he knew there will be conjectures about it being a propaganda film but he is confident that the movie will be a game changer for political cinema in India.

Besides Kher, who has essayed the role of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the movie, others named in the complaint include actor Akshaye Khanna, who plays Singh's former media advisor Sanjaya Baru, on whose book the movie is based. The film is based on Sanjaya Baru's 2014 memoir of the same name and details Singh's relationship with the Congress party's Gandhi family. And while there have been a number of humourous exchanges and amusing one-liners between Kher and Khanna, it keeps swinging the mood of the movie from serious-comedy-serious again. "We condemn it", a youth Congress activist said.However, the West Bengal Congress unit in a statement disapproved their actions.
