Veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher who is set to play the character of former prime minister Manmohan Singh in the upcoming film The Accidental Prime Minister, mocked the senior Congress leader by saying that it isn’t a silent film, reported The Indian Express. Anupam Kher’s comments came during the trailer launch of movie Indu Sarkar on Friday. When the actor was asked about his role in the movie, he replied by saying, “I am under contract not to talk about it, ironically not to talk about it.” And then taking a pot-shot at Singh, he added, “However the film is not a silent film.”
The trailer of Indu Sarkar was launched in Mumbai in the presence of entire star cast that included Neil Nitin Mukesh, Kirti Kulhari and Anupam Kher along with director Madhur Bhandarkar and co-producer Bharat Shah. Indu Sarkar’s trailer promises a lot, just like some of Madhur Bhandarkar’s previous works. The movie will release on July 28, 2017, but is yet to receive a CBFC clearance and certification. However, Bhandarkar is very positive about it.

“I had read several books and did a lot of research in Nehru Centre in Delhi and it helped a lot. I hope the censors would be lenient with the film so I wish the way they were lenient with the trailer, likewise they pass the film. 70 per cent of the film is fiction. Kirti’s story is fiction while the background Emergency part is a real fact that happened back then,” he was quoted as saying in the report.
Meanwhile, Anupam Kher who has been a part of the CBFC himself talked about the importance of freedom of speech at the event. “I was the one who passed the film (Udta Punjab) without any cuts because Anurag Kashyap had come to me and I thought the film needed to release as it is. Today I am confessing it,” he said.
