On the occasion of Congress party’s 134th anniversary celebration, several reporters accosted Manmohan Singh as he arrived at the Congress office. The Former prime minister did not comment when asked for a reaction to the trailer of “The Accidental Prime Minister”.
The film is based on the eponymous book by his former media advisor Sanjaya Baru. The trailer of the film instantly caused a stir on social media. It showed scenes in which the soft-spoken former prime minister (Anupam Kher as the former prime minister) appeared to be under pressure from his party. The movie also shows the then Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and her son, Rahul Gandhi in a controversial manner.
Dr. Manmohan Singh paused before the mics, but moved away without a word as soon as the question was asked: “What do you think about the film made about you?”
