Trailer of 'The Accidental Prime Minister' is bang on!

27th December 2018

The makers of 'The Accidental Prime Minister' have dropped its official trailer featuring Anupam Kher as the former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. Akshaye Khanna is the narrator of the film, Sanjaya Baru who has written the book of the same name.

Going by trailer itself both Akshaye Khanna and Anupam Kher are the dominant performers and the true highlight from the film from what it looks like. Sonia Gandhi's character is caricatured and the political need of eliminating the PM, as the Gandhi family urges to seek.

Manmohan Singh's voice was marvellously synced by Kher and we were left speechless with the trick. A selfless man asking for resignation and he even can't act according to his wish is thoroughly showcased in the trailer. Click here to watch the official trailer.

Earlier Anupam Kher shared a still with Akshaye Khanna and wrote some heartfelt lines for his co-star, "Dear Akshaye Khanna. Today is the release of our trailer of The Accidental Prime Minister. I want to say that you have been amazing and most giving co-actor. our brilliance rubbed on me and it helped me bring out my best. You are an inspiration. Thank you." 

'The Accidental Prime Minister' is all set to hit the screens on February 11, 2019. Hansal Mehta is the creative producer of the film. The most interesting thing is that it is arriving just before the election season.  

With such a sensational political drama getting in line we need to see the efforts as Anupam Kher steps in the shoes of the former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and yes the prosthetics team had a lot to structure in terms of facial aesthetics.

We also take a tour of the behind the scenes bits, first the oath-taking ceremony of Manmohan Singh under the vision of director Vijay Gutte taking the command on sets and instructing the actors with their body language. He has a closer look with the art design team as the atmosphere is replicated quite well. We also see how he worked with Akshaye Khanna on breaking the fourth wall.

Second is the major character of the Congress Party Rahul Gandhi played by Arjun Mathur taking instructions from the sailor of the ship Vijay Gutte who helps him build this character, emphasizing on how he must walk and talk. We even see the Gandhi family member including Priyanka Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi in the bigger picture but the highlight of the video is the setting up of the scenes which is well organised by director Vijay Gutte.
