Veteran actor, Anupam Kher is all set to play Manmohan Singh in his next movie based on the book “The Accidental Prime Minister” written by the former prime minister’s media adviser Sanjay Baru.
The movie is being directed by debutante Vijay Ratnakar Gutte while the screenplay is written by national award winner Hansal Mehta. The makers are going to release the first look by today. The film is said to be much bigger than Ben Kingsley-starrer Gandhi. Speaking about the movie Anupam Kher said, “Acting the role of anyone in contemporary history is extremely challenging, as comparisons are bound to be instant and inevitable. But as I have always revelled in challenges, right from my first film Saaransh, I look forward to the experience of portraying PM Manmohan Singh.”
The movie is said to be released in December 2018.
