Congress doesn't want 'The Accidental Prime Minister' banned

However, according to the Madhya Pradesh government, no such ban exists on the film.

The film has sparked a row over alleged distortion of facts.

The Accidental Prime Minister stars Anupam Kher as Manmohan Singh and Akshaye Khanna as his media advisor Sanjaya Baru and is based on the eponymous book by the latter.

Rashtriya Janata Dal tweeted from its official Twitter handle, "Propaganda and Financial Partner- BJP".

The clarifications from the Kamal Nath-led Congress government and the party came following local party leaders objecting to the "distorted portrayal" of the Gandhi family, particularly UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, and threatened to not allow its screening unless it was showed to the party before its release. Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also called The Accidental Prime Minister trailer "fake propaganda" and said: "it will not stop Congress from questioning Narendra Modi's government on rural distress, unemployment, demonetisation, the Goods and Services Tax, and corruption".

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

As soon the most awaited controversial film The Accidental Prime Minister movie's trailer was out a fresh controversy was triggered by the grand old party Congress-ruled by Gandhis.

The alleged victim is the son of Heather Unruh, a former television news presenter who spoke about the incident previous year . I mean, after all, we shared everything, you and I. "We're not done no matter anyone says", Spacey notes in the video.

He further said that people would have a different perspective about former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh after they watch "The Accidental Prime Minister".

Interestingly, the global actor who looks strikingly similar to the former Prime Minister with the turban and white beard, used to practice 3 - 4 hours daily perfecting his voice that could resemble to Dr Manmohan Singh.

At the trailer launch on December 27, Anupam Kher said, "We did not start the film thinking that this kind of political scenario will be there".

The actor, however, defended Manmohan Singh as a person, saying he was "very humane" but not a "well versed politician".

Journalist Nikhil Wagle sought to remind that the director of The Accidental Prime Minister Vijay Ratnakar Gutte and his father Ratnakar were arrested for GST fraud.

After much wait and anticipation, the makers of TheAccidental Prime Minister released the film's trailer on Thursday.
