Petition demanding stay on ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’ trailer filed in Delhi HC – Amid ongoing controversy surrounding the Anupam Kher starrer ‘The Accidental Prime Minister,’ a petition has been filed in the Delhi High Court on Saturday, seeking a stay on the film’s trailer. The petition states that the promotional trailer of the former prime minister Manmohan Singh’s biopic features an incorrect presentation of the facts to malign Singh’s image and hence, should be banned immediately.
Delhi High Court is likely to hear the petition on Monday. The petition also stated that the makers have deliberately tried to tarnish the image of Manmohan Singh, United Progressive Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.
The trailer of Anupam Kher-starrer ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’, which was recently released, drew a lot of flak from the Congress party. Maharashtra Youth Congress raised objections over the film and demanded its special screening to ensure that none of the scenes is factually incorrect.
The political controversy over The Accidental Prime Minister caught media attention after the BJP on Thursday shared its trailer calling the movie a “riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 years.” The Anupam Kher starrer is all set to release on January 11.
