A Bihar Court on Tuesday has ordered lodging of an FIR against Bollywood actors Anupam Kher, Akshaye Khanna and 15 others associated with the upcoming movie The Accidental Prime Minister based on the tenure of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Sub Divisional Judge (East) of the court Gaurab Kamal directed the Kanti police station in the Muzzafarpur district to lodge the FIR based on a complaint of advocate Sudhir Kumar Ojha.

Ojha had moved the court on January 2, 2019, with the complaint that the movie presented former PM Manmohan Singh and a number of other public figures in "bad light".

In his complaint, Ojha had named Anupam Kher, who plays the role of Manmohan Singh, as well as Akshaye Khanna, who plays Singh's media advisor Sanjaya Baru, on whose book the movie is said to be based upon.

Others named in the complaint include actors essaying the roles of UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Congress president (then national general secretary) Rahul Gandhi, former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, his deputy Lal Krishna Advani and RJD supremo Lalu Prasad Yadav.

The movie's producer, director and other key persons associated with the project were also named in the complaint.

The complainant had alleged that he felt hurt upon watching the promos of the movie, scheduled for release on January 11, 2019, wherein the public figures were portrayed in a manner that projected a poor image of the country.

The advocate had lodged his complaints under IPC sections 295, 153, 153A, 293, 504 and 120 B which relate to promoting enmity between different groups, sale of obscene objects, insult with intent to provoke breach of peace and criminal conspiracy.

The Accidental Prime Minister will release on January 11, 2019.
