Written by Sanjaya Baru, “The Accidental Prime Minister” is a memoir based on one of the most criticized Prime Ministers of India – Manmohan Singh. Based on the book, a film is getting released in 2018.
With the release of the first look of the film in 2017, people were buzzing with excitement about the unbelievable similar look portrayed by Anupam Kher. Here are some reactions:
A silent film in 2017 sir? 😉 On a serious note, here’s wishing you luck with it! I’m sure you will knock it out of the park!

It’s certainly going to be a challenge for a ‘vocal’ actor to perform a ‘mute’ role…! 😉

However, a newly released video is certainly taking the social media by storm. It shows Anupam Kher playing the role of Manmohan Singh, walking out of a building. The video has the caption:
“Anupam Kher’s striking resemblance to Former PM Manmohan Singh is taking the media by storm! This video of him is from the sets of his film The Accidental PrimeMinister which is a high voltage political drama currently being shot in London!”
Soon, Twitterati started reacting. While some praised Kher’s acting skills, others took a dig at the former Prime Minister. Here are some of the tweets:
He has acquired the way of walking exactly like manmohan Singh.
It’s showing such a dedication of him towards his films role. Well done sir..Advertisement— pulkit gupta (@_impulkit) April 11, 2018

The film also stars Akshaye Khanna and Aahana Kumra besides Anupam Kher. Currently, the shoot is taking place in London. Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte with Hansal Mehta as a creative producer, it’s set to release on December 21, 2018.
On a further note, though the social media erupted into jokes and gave him the nickname “Robot PM”, don’t let that shroud the fact that he is one of the most learned Ex-Finance Minister India has ever produced whose major economic reforms benefited the country.
