The Accidental Prime Minister, which is up for release today, may have been mired in controversies owing to its subject. But that hasn’t deterred the spirit of the makers who are going all out to promote the film. Readers, by now, would be aware that the film is based on Dr. Manmohan Singh, our former Prime Minister. And the makers planned something special for its release day that is on January 11 and visited Bombay Stock Exchange.
This honour was given to Anupam Kher of The Accidental Prime Minister. Speaking on how they came up with the idea, producer of the film Jayantilal Gada stated in reports that they were keen on doing something unique since their film too is quite unconventional. The producer had asserted that Kher will indeed ring the bell on January 11 at around 9am as a mark of kicking off the box office business of the film. He believes that since the film has historical importance, a grand mahurat was a must for them.
Interestingly, Dr. Manmohan Singh was the Finance Minister before he took over the position of Prime Minister of the country.
The Accidental Prime Minister, directed by Vijay Gutte, is based on the book by the same name and features Suzanne Bernert, Aahana Kumra, Akshaye Khanna, Arjun Mathur in lead roles.
