Yesterday, the makers of ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ shares the first look of Anupam Kher’s first look from the film.
And now, according to latest reports, German actress Suzanne Bernert will portray former Congress president Sonia Gandhi in the upcoming film.
Suzanne shared one of her picture in Sonia Gandhi’s look and captioned it as “As #soniagandhi in #abpnews drama #7rcr in pic with #indiragandhi #[email protected] #tbt pic courtesy #akhilmishra
Next in April 2018#theaccidentalprimeminister … Only few more days to start this amazing journey… Super excited and on the way stopover in”
The actress is seen bearing an uncanny resemblance to the former Congress chief.
The actress has, earlier, portrayed the former Congress President in a television series titled ‘Pradhanmantri’. The 35-year-old speaks Bengali, Marathi and Hindi fluently and is an expert Lavani dancer.
Suzanne was the first foreign actor who took on the role of a negative character or vamp for the historical show ‘Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat’, on Indian television.
Last month, she announced about being a part of ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ with this tweet:
