Anupam Kher informs, "It's a matter of great honour and pride to portray Dr Manmohan Singh who has played a very instrumental role in our nation's progress".

Veteran actor Anupam Kher will be seen playing an interesting yet challenging role in his forthcoming political biographical film, The Accidental Prime Minister. Akshaye Khanna plays the character of Baru in the film and he is also the narrator.

"Can't change facts if making a movie on Jallianwala Bagh or Holocaust", he added.

Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, the film is slated to be released on January 11. "Can't we extend our wishes for a film?" They have raised objections about the representation of facts in the movie.

When asked whether he is anxious that this film can be opposed by Congress as makers have shown a controversial relationship between Dr. Singh and his Congress party, he said, "I feel you have to be little more careful because people take only two minutes to criticize you".

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has called the movie a riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years.

The controversy has erupted over the movie "The Accidental Prime Minister" and the BJP, Congress both are in action to pounce upon the makers of the movie.

The Accidental Prime Minister revolves around Singh's life as the Prime Minister of India from 2004 to 2014 under the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.

Manmohan Singh too was asked about the film, but he chose to not answer the reporter's question.

In a letter written to the producers of the movie, Maharashtra Youth Congress president Satyajeet Tambe Patil told them that if they did not submit the movie for pre-screening, they had "other options" to stop the airing of the movie across India and for which the producers would be responsible.

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah also tweeted on the film, saying, "Can't wait for when they make The Insensitive Prime Minister".
