Rahul Gandhi’s triumph in the Assembly Elections would have a “deep and serious” impact on the bio-pic on ManmohanSingh –The Accidental Prime Minister— that is almost complete.
Apparently the forthcoming film which features Anupam Kher as former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh would benefit immeasurably from the Congress I’s triumph in 5 North Indian states.
Says a source from the film’s team, “We are postponing the release from next Friday to the first week of March. Post the assembly elections there are seismic changes in the country’s political scenario. Till the other day, there was no viable opposition in the country. Post the elections Congress I has emerged as a strong force. Rahul Gandhi is no longer the brunt of memes and trolls. Everyone is taking the Congress I seriously now. Our film is most certainly going to benefit from the shift in the political dynamics.”
A creative source from the film’s team reveals The Accidental Prime Minister based on the memoirs of political commentator Sanjaya Baru will take a revisionist look at the Prime Minister who scarcely spoke but was hardly the non-thinking bloke he was made out to be.
“We are now looking at a much larger release of the film.The mood in country is now pro-Congress. By postponing the film by two months we hope to consolidate interest in the story of Manmohan Singh whose intellectual silences were misunderstood by his opponents.”
