The film is helmed by debutant Vijay Ratnakar Gutte.

Veteran actor Anupam Kher has asked Congress president Rahul Gandhi to urge his party workers to respect freedom of speech and expression, amid controversy over his upcoming film The Accidental Prime Minister. "They know that time has come to give answers after completion of five years and they are now trying to divert attention by raising such issues and evade answering to the public after its government failed on all fronts", he said.

For Alabama coach Nick Saban , preparing for OU quarterback and Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray is not an easy thing to do. Tagovailoa underwent surgery after sustaining the injury in the SEC Championship Game on December 1 against Georgia.

Kher plays Manmohan Singh in the film, while German actor Suzanne Bernert will be seen as Sonia Gandhi. Apart from their smooth transformation, the set of the film does not fail to take one back to the intended politically-charged period.

The statement by the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister comes even as the Congress party has alleged "political motive" behind the film, which is based on a book written by Sanjaya Baru, who was the advisor of Manmohan Singh during his tenure as Prime Minister. "Watch the official trailer of The Accidental Prime Minister, based on an insider's account, releasing on 11 Jan!" "The book has been out since 2014, no protests were held since then, so the film is based on that", Kher told news agency ANI.

This film, according to me, should be India's entry to the Oscars and I should be nominated for my performance, Anupam Kher added. The film hits the theatres on January 11, 2019.

The trailer of the film has left the Congress leaders fuming. "It is the most hard role I have ever done because everyone knows Manmohan Singh very well". Was Dr Singh just a regent who was holding on to the PM's chair till the time heir was ready? It also features former Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, present party head Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi as characters. "So he should scold the Maharashtra Youth Congress Members for protesting against it (Haal hi main Rahul Gandhi Ji ka tweet padha tha, jisme freedom of expression pe unhone bola tha, toh I think unko daatna chahiye un logon ko ki aap ghalat baat kar rahe ho)".
