Since the trailer of Anupam Kher starrer The Accidental Prime Minister has been released, it has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
The film’s trailer, which released on Thursday, shows Manmohan Singh as a victim of the Congress’ internal politics in the UPA-I and II. This prompted the Maharashtra Youth Congress to write a letter to the filmmakers, demanding a special pre-release screening of the movie, while threatening to protest against its release if this was not done.
Amidst all this, the makers of the film has released the new poster of the film, where the actor greets with a Namaste just like the former PM.
