PIL against The Accidental Prime Minister trailer dismissed

The Supreme Court on Thursday refused to accord urgent hearing on a plea challenging the January 7 order of the Delhi High Court which had disposed of a petition seeking to ban the trailer of upcoming movie, "The Accidental Prime Minister". According to ANI, the court has now directed that an FIR be filed.

The movie revolves around the story of Manmohan Singh who was the former Prime Minister of India and the decisions he took was ultimately governed by the former president of the Indian National Congress.

Besides Kher, who has essayed the role of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the movie, others named in the complaint include actor Akshaye Khanna, who plays Singh's former media advisor Sanjaya Baru, on whose book the movie is based. The movie is set for worldwide release on January 11.




The Delhi High Court Monday refused to restrain Google and YouTube from airing trailer of "The Accidental Prime Minister", saying that the issue relates to someone which involves "public interest" and not "personal interest". They also raised slogans against the actors and the producer of the film.

Helmed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, The Accidental Prime Minister is bankrolled by Sunil Bohra and Dhaval Gada under the banners of Rudra Productions (UK), Bohra Bros. and Pen India Limited. Other releases like Viswasam and Petta are not going to affect this movie but Vicky Kaushal's Uri which is also becoming popular by its thrilling trailer can affect the box office collection of the movie. "I do not endorse the kind of politics Congress does hence we parted ways several years back But, I will say that it is not in a good taste".
