‘The Accidental Prime Minister’: Anupam Kher slays as Manmohan Singh


Anupam Kher shares the first look of from the film, ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’. His look as former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is mind-blowing. He looked every bit as ex-PM Manmohan Singh. The picture shows Kher with folded hands and donning a padgi, bespectacled.

“Happy to share my first look of #DrManmohanSingh, India’s Former Prime Minister from the movie #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister directed by #VijayRatnakarGutte & produced by #BohraBrothers. Creative producer is @mehtahansal. Film is based on #SanjayBaru’s book with the same title,” Kher captioned three photos posted on Twitter on Thursday.

Anupam said in a statement: “The opportunity of portraying a contemporary personality like Dr Manmohan Singh in ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ is an immense challenge for me as an actor. He is part of a 24/7 media era where the world knows his persona minutely.

“I have been internalising this character for the past few months. I look forward to translating that effort into cinematic reality,” he added.

German-born actor Suzanne Bernert has been roped in to play the role of former Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.

Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, the biopic on the former PM is slated to release on December 21.
