With just a day left for Anupam Kher's The Accidental Prime Minister to hit the theatres, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur shared the first review of the movie. Surrounding the life of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during his exercise period in India, the film has already erupted much controversy among various politicians.
However, meandering through legal notices and other challenges like when the trailer was pulled down from YouTube, the Anupam Kher-starrer will finally hit the silver screens this Friday featuring Akshaye Khanna. Director Shekhar took to Twitter praising veteran actor Anupam Kher on how he skillfully captured the look of Manmohan Singh and Akshaye Khanna.
He wrote, "Two very strong performances make #AccidentalPrimeMinister a must-see film. Akshaye Khanna and Anupam Kher. Anupam creates Manmohan Singh as a man who seems weak but carries great strength inside. Yet ultimately finds that principles and politics do not go together @AnupamPKher"

What @AnupamPKher has done in playing Manmohan Singh in #AccidentalPM is to create something that could easily have become a caricature, into a breathing relatable human being that you want to reach out to and hug. That takes a lot of skill.— Shekhar Kapur (@shekharkapur) January 10, 2019
Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, The Accidental Prime Minister is based on the book of the same name by Sanjaya Baru.
