Veteran actor Anupam Kher who will be seen as former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in his upcoming film The Accidental Prime Minister introduced reel life LK Advani and Lalu Prasad Yadav. The Accidental Prime Minister: The Making and Unmaking of Manmohan Singh is the book written by former Prime Minister’s media advisor Sanjay Baru. The producer of the film Sunil Bohra revealed that they have completed the research on the movie and it is going to be bigger than Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi.
Anupam Kher took to Twitter and wrote," Introducing Avtar Sahni as #LKAdvaniJi, Vimal Verma as #LaluPrasadYadavJi and Anil Rastogi as #ShivRajPatilJi.:) #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister @tapmofficial @sunil_s_bohra #VijayGutte.” The Accidental Prime Minister has been making news for the stark resemblance of its characters with their real-life counterparts. Kher, who plays Manmohan, seems to have adopted the mannerisms of the former PM quite well.
