  • Madhya Pradesh No ban on ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ reports are misleading says state

Debutant director Vijay Ratnakar Gutte has helmed the film.

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

Anupam Kher featured in two of the most dramatic and most amusing movies of 2018, Aiyaary and Baa Baa Black Sheep, respectively. The biographical film has paid attention to the finer details, with Anupam and Akshaye perfecting their persona's unique quirks, delivered through their stunning performances. Arjun Mathur will be seen as Rahul Gandhi, the son of Sonia Gandhi, Abdul Quadir Amin as Ajay Singh, Vimal Verma as Lalu Prasad Yadav, Avter Saini as Lal Krishna Advani, Anil Rastogi as Shivraj Patil, Ajit Satbhai as P. V.Narasimha_Rao, the former prime minister of India and Chitragupta Sinha as P. V. Ranga Rao, the Elder son of P. V.Narasimha Rao. Apart from their smooth transformation, the set of the film does not fail to take one back to the intended politically-charged period.

Actor Anupam Kher, who plays the role of Manmohan Singh in the film "Accidental Prime Minister", on Friday asked why the Congress is protesting against the movie now when the book, on which it is based, has been in the makrket since 2014.

He wondered why protests weren't held earlier when the book was released in 2014.

As for the German case, Qualcomm said the patent in question provides a way to mitigate power amplifier power consumption. Apple will pull iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 models from the company's 15 retail stores in Germany, the company told Reuters .

Calling it a propaganda film, the Congress accused the BJP of trying to capitalise on it at a time the country is preparing for the national election next year.

The Congress in Maharashtra has objected to the trailer of the movie, "The Accidental Prime Minister", claiming that it shows the party leaders in a "disparaging" manner.

The trailer also shows glimpses of hard episodes in Manmohan Singh's tenure, mostly internal churnings in the Congress. Was Dr Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM's chair till the time heir was ready? The film has ruffled several feathers in political circles in the country ever since its trailer hit the web on Thursday afternoon. The focus is the power dynamics between Gandhi and Singh, with present Congress president Rahul Gandhi presented as the successor in-waiting.

"I had read Rahul Gandhiji's tweet where he spoke about freedom of expression".
