Actor Anupam Kher had earlier shared pictures from the sets of his upcoming film The Accidental Prime Minister that took the internet by storm and even made headlines. Well, here is another picture that will blow your mind. In the picture, is seen, various actors disguised as contemporary Indian politicians. You will definitely be able to recognise a few if not all. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter to share a picture of the whole cast while in their respective characters. He captioned it, “Arriving Christmas 2018… #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister, the political drama starring Anupam Kher, to release on 21 Dec 2018… Costars Akshaye Khanna, Suzanne Bernert and Aahana Kumra… Directed by Vijay Gutte… Here’s a glimpse of the film:”.
In one frame we get to see the reel politicians: former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi, former President APJ Abdul Kalam and former union minister Shivraj Patil. Starring Anupam Kher as former Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, The Accidental Prime Minister is based on a book of the same name. It gives us a look at the UPA years of Indian politics. The book alleges that Dr Singh was never fully in charge of his cabinet. In fact, the then Congress president Sonia Gandhi held a significant amount a power.
Produced by Hansal Mehta, the film also stars German actor Suzanne Bernert who will be playing the role of former Congress president Sonia Gandhi. Ahana Kumra will be seen playing Priyanka and Arjun Mathur will be seen playing Rahul. It is almost hard to believe how close the characters are looking to the original figures. The makers surely did a great job in selecting the cast and of course, the makeup artists and costume designers for making the characters look as real as possible.
