The film is based on the book of the same name, written by Sanjay Baru, who served as former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's media advisor 2004 to 2008. "That?s what we have done here", the 63-year-old told ANI. "If the said movie is released without prior screening for our office bearers and without making necessary changes recommended by us, it will be understood that you are doing this deliberately and we have other options open to stop the screening of the same across India", the statement concluded. Anupam Kher as Manmohan Singh impresses with his body language. Singh moved away and started walking. That challenged me. I rehearsed his walk for 45 minutes but I couldn't get it right so, I called the makers for the narration of the script and I was very fascinated by it. Kher as Singh looks effortless in the trailer. I must have seen at least 100 hours of footage but the most hard was the voice part of it because he has a typical voice. "I then chose to read the script and it was great".
"We did the first schedule in England of 40 days and during that time, we were in a secluded place. He is more vocal now than he was in year 2014". The veteran actor said the protests by Congress workers will only give more publicity to the film. The film, whose trailer was released recently, has a motley of actors playing the key players of the Nehru-Gandhi family and Kher stepping into the shoes of Dr Manmohan Singh.
The global actor, who has played memorable roles in his prolific film career, is quite upbeat about the one he plays in The Accidental Prime Minister as he has devoted two months extensively working on his voice modulation so that his character would sound like the former PM of India.
The Congress in Maharashtra has objected to the trailer of the movie, "The Accidental Prime Minister", claiming that it shows the party leaders in a "disparaging" manner. It is a political film based on a book, whatever the book has said we have tried to make that.
