‘The Accidental Prime Minister’: Bihar court orders FIR against actors

Anil Kapoor Reviews Anupam Kher's The Accidental Prime Minister. Says'You're Such A Great Story Teller ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’: Bihar court orders FIR against actors

The Accidental Prime Minister is based on the book of the same name by Sanjaya Baru, who served as then PM Manmohan Singh's media advisor between 2004 and 2008.

In the plea, Mahajan had requested the court to issue direction to the Centre, Google, YouTube and Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to take steps to stop the exhibition and display of the trailer. According to ANI, the court has now directed that an FIR be filed.

The Accidental Prime Minister has been in the news since a while now due to the reported controversial content. Ojha has further complained that actors who have played the role of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, his mother Sonia Gandhi and his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra have damaged their image.

"Those who are indulging in politics before the elections by making such a movie should also watch another movie titled as Disastrous Prime Minister".

It claimed that it "seems that film makers, producers have made an attempt to make commercial gains and the act of impersonation has been committed deliberately to defame the office of Prime Minister just to hype the excitement among the prospective viewers". "It is called The Accidental Prime Minister.but every PM is accidental.so I do not understand the name (of the film)", Banerjee said while inaugurating the state government's annual theatre festival in North 24 Parganas district. The best part is that it shows the human side of Manmohan Singh though not to a great deal.

A division bench of the high court had Wednesday rejected the PIL seeking ban on the movie and its trailer saying the petitioner has no locus standi to file the plea and private interest was involved in it.
