The trailer of the film, based on the eponymous book by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's media advisor Sanjaya Baru, has sparked a row with Congressmen alleging distortion of facts. The state, where Congress formed a government with Kamal Nath as the Chief Minister earlier this month, is mulling on a ban on the film, according to reports. Hours later, Tambe tweeted, "As BJP has tweeted trailer of #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister movie from their official Twitter handle... it is now evident that it is BJP's propaganda/campaign movie... hence we don't even want to see this campaign movie of BJP and we withdraw our demand of special screening".
On the other hand, Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore defended BJP for "extending wishes" for the film.
The makers of The Accidental Prime Minister have released the trailer of the movie, and has received positive response from viewers on social media. He asked why Congress, which has been a champion of freedom, is now questioning it.
"A riveting tale of how a family held the country to ransom for 10 long years".
The movie The Acccidental Prime Minister revolves around Dr Manmohan Singh, the economist and politician who served as the Prime Minister of India from 2004 to 2014 under the United Progressive Alliance.
"We are not happy and it's not acceptable the way Manmohan Singh, Sonia Gandhi and Congress party is shown in the movie's trailer".
"Manmohan Singh is an intellectual leader".
When the film releases on January 11, there surely is going to be much debate about what it depicts.
Directed by Vijay Ratnakar Gutte, the film is a biographical political drama, presented by Rudra Production (UK), Bohra Bros in association with Dr Jayantilal Gada (Pen India Limited).
While reacting on Maharashtra Youth Congress objecting to film The Accidental Prime Minister, Anupam Kher said, "Haal hi main Rahul Gandhi ji ka tweet padha tha, jisme freedom of expression pe unhone bola tha, toh I think unko daatna chahiye un logon ko ki aap ghalat baat kar rahe ho".
