Rishi Kapoor on The Accidental Prime Minister: It's political yet interesting

The trailer of Anupam Kher starrer ''The Accidental Prime Minister'' released yesterday and it won much praise from fans. In the film, Kher will be seen essaying the role of ex-PM Manmohan Singh. Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor loved the trailer of Anupam Kher-Akshaye Khanna starrer "The Accidental Prime Minister", and says the film seems to be "political yet interesting". "What a wonderful trailer of a film promising to be political yet interesting. Anupam Kher, your passion for your craft is what I hope you teach at your film school. And how smashing does our Akshaye Khanna look! Congratulations beforehand," Rishi posted on Twitter on Friday.

The trailer released on Thursday.

Anupam will be seen playing the role of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the film, which is based on a book by Sanjaya Baru, a former media advisor to Manmohan Singh. Akshaye features as Baru and Divya Seth Shah plays Manmohan Singh's wife Gursharan Kaur in the movie.

It is directed by debutant Vijay Ratnakar Gutte along with Hansal Mehta as the creative producer. The film also features Suzanne Bernert as Sonia Gandhi, Aahana Kumra as Priyanka Gandhi and Arjun Mathur as Rahul Gandhi

The political drama, scheduled to release on January 11 next year, has already raised political temperatures with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) latching on to it to hit out at the Gandhi family, while the Congress has questioned the BJP's motive behind "promoting the film" and raised objections to the "incorrect presentation of the facts" in the film.
