The Accidental Prime Minister is based on the book of the same name. Since the time the movie has been announced, the audience and the critics have been more than curious to know more about it. Since the time Anupam Kher revealed the look of himself as Manmohan Singh, the buzz has never stopped.
Recently, Anupam Kher shared a photo and we can see him as the former PM Manmohan Singh conversing with Aahana Kumra who plays Priyanka Gandhi. In the picture, we can also see Rahul Gandhi played by Arjun Mathur.

Arjun Mathur plays the Congress president, Rahul Gandhi, in the film and Aahana Kumra plays his onscreen sister Priyanka Gandhi. She has worked in Lipstick Under My Burkha and Arjun has appeared in movies including Angry Indian Goddesses and My Name Is Khan.
Aahana and Arjun also hold an uncanny resemblance to the characters they are enacting. After revealing his own look from the film, he introduced Ram Avatar Bhardawaj as former Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Divya Seth Shah as Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s wife Gursharan Kaur.

Anupam Kher told IANS, “The opportunity of portraying a contemporary personality like Dr Manmohan Singh in The Accidental Prime Minister is an immense challenge for me as an actor. He is part of a 24/7 media era where world knows his persona minutely. I have been internalizing this character for the past few months. I look forward to translating that effort into cinematic reality.”
The film that is slated to release on December 21. It’ll be fascinating to see how this biopic on a politician turns out to be.
