Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh chose not to respond to reporters seeking his reaction to the trailer of "The Accidental Prime Minister", the film based on the eponymous book by his former media adviser Sanjaya Baru.

While reacting on Maharashtra Youth Congress objecting to film The Accidental Prime Minister, Anupam Kher said, "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".

The film shows Manmohan Singh dealing with pressures from the Congress leadership - Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi - and even offering to resign. The Maharashtra Youth Congress said that if some scenes of the movie found to be unfactual, the same would have to be deleted otherwise they would not allow the film to be released. Until then, check out the trailer of The Accidental Prime Minister.

Congress has in the past accused the Gutte family of siphoning off over Rs 300 crores as part of a sugar factory scam which involved fraudulently taking loans worth the same amount in the names of farmers without their knowledge and later diverting it to films. The film has ruffled several feathers in political circles in the country ever since its trailer hit the web on Thursday afternoon. But for the BJP, it's a "riveting tale". Meanwhile, the Congerss has denied reports that it is seeking a ban on the release of Anupam Kher-starrer The Accidental Prime Minister.

He wondered why protests weren't held earlier when the book was released in 2014. "It was quite challenging and one of the most hard roles I've ever played".

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister and politician Omar Abdullah took a dig at the recently-released trailer of the film this morning.

Speaking at the trailer launch of the film, Kher told media, "The biggest challenge for me was the voice. Daniel Day-Lewis got it for Lincoln, Meryl Streep for her performance as Margaret Thatcher, Ben Kingsley got it for Gandhi." he said.
