'Accidental Prime Minister' is BJP's propaganda against our party: Congress leaders

Today, former PM Manmohan Singh was asked by a reporter about his comment upon the movie made on him, but his response was unprecedented as Singh, just turned away the question and moved on.

The Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress are sparring over The Accidental Prime Minister, a day after the trailer of the movie released on Thursday.

We must say, it's Anupam Kher and Akshaye Khanna who emerge as show-stealers and keep you hooked.

The statement also warned the makers of the film against releasing the movie without a prior screening and review by the party.

"If we make a film on the issue of Jallianwala Bagh or The Holocaust or any historic incident, we can?t change the history or the facts".

"About one-and-a-half years back, my friend Ashok Pandit told me that there is a film being made on Dr Manmohan Singh, and of course everybody heard about the book and the controversy behind the book".

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".

Riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years.

The upcoming film delves deep into the internal politics of the Congress party and how Manmohan Singh found himself in the middle of it.

In a letter to the makers of the film, the party's Maharashtra youth wing has raised objections to the "incorrect presentation of the facts" and has demanded a special screening of the film to ensure that none of the scenes is factually incorrect.

The film is slated to release on 11th January, 2019 and will be released in Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu.

The film is based on a book by former prime minister Manmohan Singh's media advisor Sanjaya Baru -'The Accidental Prime Minister' -which was published in 2014.

"The book is written by a man who was very close to the prime minister at that time". Meanwhile, the Congerss has denied reports that it is seeking a ban on the release of Anupam Kher-starrer The Accidental Prime Minister.
