Anupam Kher who will be next seen as the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said the role challenged the actor in him.
Replying Kher said, “I was amused and confused in the beginning. But then I read the script. It blew my mind. It challenged the actor in me,” Anupam wrote.
‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ is based on a book by Sanjaya Baru, a former media advisor to Manmohan Singh. Akshaye Khanna 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 script of “The Accidental Prime Minister”, produced by Bohra Bros, is written by Mayank Tewari. It is slated to release on December 21.
